Marketing, Motherhood, and Mayhem

Leaving your Mark(s)

May 8th, 2012 by Deb McLean

When I was young, I wanted to be famous (most kids do I think).  I dreamed of being an Olympic Athlete or a famous movie star.  Alas, I wasn’t nearly good enough nor pretty enough. 

As I grew older, I realized that it wasn’t that I wanted to be famous.  I wanted to leave my mark.  Make a difference in the world.

Being blessed with Motherhood has been my most important mark of all.  Raising a good and kind human being is my greatest accomplishment.  She’s my legacy.

But service to others is also leaving your mark.  There are many many charities, big and small in need.  It’s not just making monetary donations although that is important.  It’s your time.  Mentor or be a reading coach in schools.  Volunteer at soup kitchens or organizations like Metropolitan Ministry.  Volunteer at the Crisis Center.   Raise your hand!  Leave your mark!
