|When I consider my station in life, my initial tendency is to wonder why things didnít turn out more like I envisioned them when I was younger. I havenít done many of the things I planned, I havenít achieved as much as I thought I would, and frankly, I didnít know things would be so hard. This is not where I expected to be in life. But with a little more thought, it occurs to me that perhaps this is the place at which I was meant to arrive. Life is not necessarily about our dreams coming true. I believe itís about discovering truth, meaning, and purpose, and doing this wherever our journey leads us. We are not defined, nor limited in our greatness, by our circumstances Ė but rather by how we live our lives and who we become in the process. And so, I thank God for the blessings I receive, try to share them with others, love as much as I can, and do my best to create joy in the place where I am.|
