There is a special place
in life,
that needs my humble skill,
a certain job I'm meant to do,
which no one else can fulfill.

The time
will be demanding
and the pay is not too good
and yet I wouldn't change it for a moment
- even if I could.

There is a special place in life,
a goal I must attain,
a dream that I must follow,
because I won't be back again.

There is a mark
that I must leave,
however small
it seems to be,
a legacy of love
for those who follow
after me.

There is a special place in life,
that only I may share,
a little path
that bears my name,
awaiting me

There is a hand
that I must hold,
a word
that I must say,

a smile
that I must give
for there are tears to blow away.

There is a special place in life
that I was meant to fill,
a sunny spot
where flowers grow
upon a windy hill.

There's always a tomorrow
and the best is yet to be,
and somewhere
in this world,
I know
there is
a place
Living with integrity means:
Not settling for less than
what you know you deserve in your relationships.

Asking for what you want and need from others.
Speaking truth,
even thought it might create conflict or tension.

Behaving in ways that are in harmony
with your personal values.

Making choices based on what you believe,
and not what others believe.
Why are you here?
your place;
your purpose?
How close are
you to fulfilling it?

The difference between ordinary
and extraordinary
is that little extra. 3
