I feel so humbled...

There's those things in life that just make you sit back, tear up, and realize how insignificant all your worries and frets really are...

I just had one of these moments...I was reading blog by a dear girl I grew up with who is participating in a World Race. She is visiting 11 countries in the next 11 months spreading the word of God and helping those less fortunate...

All I can say is WOW...I'd love to be a part of something so grand...so simple but so grand...

I really can't say too much about it...the website probably explains it all and will really open your eyes if interested:
The World Race

Beyond that, here's Alycia's blog:
Nomad Spirit, Faithful Heart

I can only wish that my life will someday amount to what these people are doing. I've always wanted to impact the world in a tremendous way but it has never presented itself to me..and now I feel sad...that I'll never know how to help...I'll never know what to do for the greater good...ugh, my selfless self is pouring out with no place to go....

I have learned, that even though I haven't the means or ability to travel, you can still touch the lives of others.

Its little things, that to you may be thoughtless in the way that you think nothing of what you are doing, as if it were as natural as breathing, but to another person, it could make a world of difference in their lives.

I have been through a lot, and sharing my story helps other become less afraid of sharing theirs, helps other realize what they are capable of overcoming.

I have become a huge cancer advocate and help run several charities locally.

You can make a world of an impact in a small place, because to a lot of people, the world is all they can see within an arms reach.

Sometimes all it takes to change someone's life is an open heart and a willing ear.

You have that ability, never take that for granted.

Feeling or being humble is a wonderful/eye opening feeling.....something to be thankful for. I have a feeling your feeling of needing to do or be something or someone of importance will be fullfilled here in a few months!
