The extra mile, not long, but essential. Going the extra mile is filled with purpose. Why travel the extra mile for someone? Someone said to me once, “why do you care so much” “you don’t have to say thank you” “it’s not necessary”. That’s the point, going the extra mile isn’t necessary, but purposeful and meaningful. Getting up caught up in our daily responsibilities happens, but life is about making the moments matter. The purpose matters when it’s authentic. Going the extra mile can look so different for everyone, but it’s never crowded, so go the extra mile, fulfill your purpose and do it authentically and you’ll never get lost.
The best and worst thing that ever happened to me was losing my Mom to cancer unexpectedly and rapidly, she was as wonderful as they come in all areas, going the extra mile daily because she cared genuinely and spoke the truth in a loving matter bringing out the best in others. So, sometimes when we lose something so special, we value it so greatly in others when it’s gone and then want to carry it with us. Travel the extra mile; you’ll never get lost, detoured or caught in traffic because you are traveling on purpose.
