The most powerful thing travel taught me was how to live.

The memories you create, the people you meet, the things you see.

It changes you. Inspires you.

For the past few months, I’ve felt like a storyteller. Now, I want to take serious action to serve others.

Action on a global, tangible scale.

While researching humanitarian organizations to collaborate with, I came across charity: water. Their mission is simple yet groundbreaking: bring clean water to those who desperately need it. We take water for granted, but it’s the most basic, deserving daily need. The integrity and authentic enthusiasm of this nonprofit is what caught my eye. Immediately, I thought to myself: wow… I want to work with people like this. People that share the same passion to serve others, because we understand that taking action and giving love brings life meaning. This is what life is about. To be blunt, my goal is to work with a passionate, creative group of people who actively seek living life with intention and courage.

I want to share this because this is what’s on my heart and I know the world isn’t so big after all. Life is sometimes a series of actions, and I choose to make my dreams happen.

“I learned from a very young age that if I pursued the things that truly excited me, that they would reward in more important ways, like happiness.”

What adventure do you choose?

 

One thought on “My heart aches to live with intention

  1. Your passion, inspiration, and intention shine through the words you choose. Although my initial adventure is a bit smaller in scale, I hope that it has a positive impact on those lives I touch. I have volunteered to serve as a Lego Robotics coach for youth in our area. The hope is to show these young men and women how much of a difference they can make in their community and their own lives. I would love, with time, to expand my influence in this area or others on a global basis. Thank you for the inspiration 😉
