Respect yourself and what you bring to the table, while respecting others and their gifts, too.
Value who you are and treat others with value.
Hold onto the truth that no matter what, you are a ripple that helps create waves. Make sure your waves are the best kind – waves of difference making, positivity, kindness, resilience, impact and hope.
Appreciate your singular opportunities to serve, share and be your best.
This process requires intention and persistence, and results in the kind of contentment that leads to joy.
Count it all joy:
The blessings that bring you happiness
The lessons that lead to wisdom
The heartbreak that teaches you empathy
The hope that helps you grow.
Comprise your daily gift – the life that only you get to live.
Living life to the fullest doesn’t mean living a carefree, pain-free life. It means finding meaning and joy in the things that matter most, no matter the circumstances.
(Inaugural post from Life Untapped curator Stacy Hawkins Adams.)
Your life matters because you matter.
Your hopes. Your dreams. Your flaws and failures that make you who you are and give you your unique (and valuable) perspective. The purpose only you can execute during your time on earth.
Life Untapped, the blog, is meant to be a source of hope, how-to and motivation as you seek your lane of service, love, joy and impact.
We all have one – whether it’s to be the best stay-at-home mom, office administrator or community leader possible or to change the world in some dramatic way. But the first shift toward our destiny begins with believing that the “story” we’re each living is our unique gift to the world – our personal opportunity for relevance.
Whether you aim to be a writer or simply want to read and write more intentionally to learn and grow, Life Untapped is here to help. We’ll provide inspiration and information you can use to move toward the reality you long to live.
Use the messages here – from me and my guests – as a guidebook and example of how to shape your life into your own particular masterpiece. Not perfect; just personal. And become intentional about enjoying the process as much as securing the prize, whatever it may be. That’s important, so that your memories will make you smile long after a task is complete, a goal is accomplished or a seed is planted and the flower of your life has bloomed.
Thanks for joining me here. I’m honored to be on the journey with you.
