What Life Is About...

via carmen chan | blog on 12/26/11

"Use your life. I want people to be able to see that you don't have to have a lot of money or be surrounded by wealth or material possessions to be able to use yourself right where you are. Use your life to serve the world, and you will find that it also serves you. One of the biggest mistakes people make is thinking they have to get paid a lot of money, or at all for your calling. You are here to honor your calling whether you are paid for it or not. If you can get paid for it, that makes your life exponentially better. If you are not paid for it, that is also really just fine, because honoring the calling feeds everything you do in your life, it makes everything better."

- Oprah
I think this is an accurate description of what the people I admire, and many of the people I've had the opportunity to meet because of this blog, are doing.

I read this during my vacation, and I really wanted to reblog this. I found this inspirational, and it made me think. Oprah sounds real, you know, not just some rich woman spouting random cliche or corny things. I think she really believes in what she says.
