“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do”.
My Walk into the Future has provided me with a new perspective on how I see and live life. This process has created transformations (mental and physical) which allow me to walk daily with a mission to make a difference daily.
A great aspect to my Walk into the Future has been the great connections I make and reconnecting with friends and family. I have mentioned one of my mentors, Mrs. Mattie Fouraker who I met in the 10th grade. She was my Typing 1 teacher and the skills I learned from her have led to many successful outcomes for me over the years.
I started sharing Walk into the Future blog articles with Mrs. Fouraker to show her some of the things I have been doing and a way to say thank you. Decided to print a few articles and mailed them to her so she can have them readily available. Got an email from her to let me know she received them and a huge surprise.
My mission to make a difference daily and sharing blog articles inspired her to create an Inspiration Project.
She decided to get busy and find ways to inspire others in her life daily! My mentor put a smile on my face by emulating something I do—truly humbled when she told me what she was doing.
She cut out my mission: to make a difference daily and put this on her refrigerator with a monthly calendar underneath.
Her goal is to do something to inspire someone every day of the month and record the deed on the calendar. Thought this was a very purposeful way to inspire others and make a difference daily. In fact, the ability to look back on a month’s worth of difference making must feel great. I love this idea and grateful she shared her project with me.
I will follow her lead and record my daily difference making initiatives to get a better understanding of impact AND to keep me focused. I am sure there are days I may fall short but having a visual tool will keep me on-track. The monthly good deeds may also lead to future blog articles—we will see!
So, now I challenge everyone who may read this post to join Mrs. Fouraker and me on this Inspiration Project journey to make a difference daily. Create a calendar, excel spreadsheet, or Google doc to record who and how you made a difference today. Do this for a day, a week, or a month to see the impact you have on the people in your daily walk. Track your inspirations for as long as you want but thought this was a great way to highlight the importance of helping others. Who is with me? 😊 This could also be the beginning of you establishing your own tree branches.
Who can you inspire today? What will you do to make it happen? Thanks!

Note: Mrs. Fouraker is a regular reader of the blog now. She follows along weekly on her iPad —hope you enjoyed this one and thanks for the inspiration! Hope to see you soon!😊
