You are where you are for a reason; and if you did not choose to be there or were not meant to be there try to see it as a sidetrack to where you’re meant to be – an added experience, a learning of something new in your life, the dawning of an idea or piece of knowledge you never held before, or an opportunity to share your gifts – to help, assist, learn. Wherever we are at any given point in time strive to be the best you can – as a person at work, home or with family, friends, neighbours, acquaintances and strangers.
Bloom where you are planted – it will be for the benefit of many … and also for you. For wherever you are becomes a step towards where you’re meant to be.
Truly charity has no limit; for the love of God has been poured into our hearts by His Spirit dwelling in each one of us, calling us to a life of devotion and inviting us to bloom in the garden where He has planted and directing us to radiate the beauty and spread the fragrance of His Providence.
St. Francis de Sales
