Something More

"We are most fulfilled when we are involved in something bigger than ourselves" -Senator John Glenn. 

This theme of something more and bigger seems to be following me around today.  When I turned on the radio this morning Elvis Duran and The Morning Show were talking about doing more.  Pick one thing in your life and do more to it, and it was really interesting because I don't really think of them as an inspirational push the boundaries radio show.  But there was even this woman who called in and said she "did more" with her family.  She took more time with her husband and her kids and how that had positively affected her family.  

Then the focus in my office was all about making me more professional.  My office is also the workroom, full of files, supplies, envelopes, paper, etc.  So our volunteer helped me take things apart, clean everything, sort files, put some things in storage all in an effort to make me seem more executive.  

And then there's this message on Twitter reminding me that I'm not just my job.  

Cause while I am part of something greater than myself in my office, bringing jobs to the community.  I also want to use this as a metaphor for the day-to-day humdrum of my life.  

Everyday is part of something bigger, days make up weeks, make up months, make up years of my life.  And Change, change starts one day at a time.  I think this was a good reminder today, just a few weeks into the "Year of my Side Hustle" to remember that I can do something everyday to improve.  

So don't forget to do something more today.  Just a little something more that can build on to the next day and the next day and the next day.  Cause that's how your days will be fulfilled.
