We’ve all heard these two terms “make your mark” or leaving your mark”. Whether it is something that you have put conscious thought into and are actively pursuing or possibly you haven’t given it much thought at all, you are doing it! You are leaving your mark. For better or for worse. As you read this I ask you to go a little deeper with the overall concept, and consider day by day, moment by moment what is the mark I am leaving around me?

You are checking out at the the grocery store, rushing through your day, quickly paying and then it’s grab and go without ever making eye contact and showing kindness to the grocery store checker…

You get up in the morning, suffering from a poor nights sleep.  You are cranky with your husband/wife and your children. No morning kiss for your spouse and then you shout demands at the children to get them moving…

You see a Senior struggling to get their bags in the car, so you jump right in and help them out…

A child is crying in the store and can’t find mommy. You instinctively soothe theme and help connect them with their parent.

It is a good and noble idea to have a desire and goal to leave a positive mark on the world. However, the only way that goal can be achieved is by positively making an impact to those around you moment by moment, day by day. If we work toward keeping conscious thought daily to how we are imprinting others – family, friends and strangers, then we are on the right track. Making a positive mark daily is the only way we can LEAVE A POSITIVE MARK IN THIS WORLD!
