How much area does it cover????? Your Footprints.



                           Last week as I walked on the banks of mrytle beach in S.C. I couldn't help but try to do two things, shake of the sand off my feet,and ignore the footprints I was leaving behind me.The problem was the size of my footprint,it was so amazing how it matched my foot in its entirety and for a moment I started to recognize how it applies to life and death.Everyday we have life, we all have the opportunity to leave a mark,a footprint in all we do.It is a basic principle of existance.Once we move,we act,or even when we do nothing we are making a change;we are keeping change from occuring.In your workplace,family,relationships,what is often said about you after you have walked away.Are you an integral part of decision making,a passive character or a constant channel for complaints.We know God is the general auditor of our lives but its more fascinating when you consider the number of people you are arround on a daily basis and the silent auditing they do behind your back.That explains the biographies we read at funerals-the human picture of your footprint.The question now is,what kind of footprint do you want to leave,and how much area will it cover.

       How I wish the world would embrace Ralph Waldo's definition of success.You can do it,you just have to become uncomfortable living life just for your self....change the game,you are not a tree if you don't like your current address move.If you footprint is not large and deep enough,you can change that.Finally lets remind ourselves of the truth in the Cliché "be the change you want to see".
