I Am, Therefore I Teach

azalea-1294743_1920It is often said that everyone who comes into our lives is sent to teach us something, even the most difficult people. But I believe that people are also sent into our lives so that they might learn from us, be inspired, or gain hope when they had none. Yes, there are times when we are purposefully in that role, but there are many times that we teach, inspire, and restore hope unknowingly by our actions. It could be the way you speak to someone, something you share about yourself, extending a small kindness, or the way you conduct yourself in various situations. If you consider that you have an opportunity to improve, even in some small way, the life of everyone that you encounter, your daily existence will have more meaning and purpose.
