The next time your thoughts go down the You don’t Matter road, think about this:
How many lives have you touched that you don’t know?

I was at my second annual get together with some of my high school friends Saturday. There were several people I didn’t know or remember, but EVEN before I introduced myself, they walked up and called me by name. They remembered where I lived in high school too.

You may NOT think you make an impression while you’re living your life and going about your daily tasks but I’m here to tell you that you CERTAINLY do. Don’t EVER take yourself and the impression you make on the world for granted.

Everyone leaves a mark. You must decide whether you want to leave a positive mark or a negative one.
