This may not just be one moment, but a few where you are forced to take an inventory of where you are and where you want to be. We all need to be reminded that we are more than what we see in the mirror every day. We need those people to open the doors we are afraid to walk through. We never realize our potential until someone points it out first. We are afraid to allow our talents to shine and instead shrug them off as if everyone can paint murals. I am here to tell you that we are not all blessed with those special skills, RE. If we all brough the same thing to the table, every day, that would be boring. But instead, we are unique in our very special ways and that is what I never get tired of seeing. There are a couple of things I might do better than others, but there are so many of you out there that have talent I could only dream of having a little piece of one day. There comes a time when you have to take a true inventory on what you want from this life and what you are willing to give to the rest of us. Sometimes, we give more and take less. Other times, it requires us to take more because we are capable of giving less. You know when your moment of truth comes and it comes to us all eventually, even on our death-bed. When we are required to take a good, hard look at where we are and what we did with our time on Earth. This morning, I heard a song about that even if everything was stripped away, that the singer would still have her voice and that could never be silenced. That voice — is telling you to find your moment of truth. Getting you into action and making a difference is what should drive you like a steam engine, full of power and determination. If you have to, think about the “Little Engine that Could.” We give up before we even give ourselves a chance to succeed. Adversity makes me stronger and reminds me of what is important and what isn’t. You know it in your heart where you need to be, but maybe you are not sure how you can get there. I get that, more than you know. When you are there, searching for that one answer that makes it crystal clear for you, you hesitate and think. Recognize what is before you. And at that moment, that very moment, when you are contemplating on whether you should move forward or stop, THAT is your moment of truth.
