Words to SPARK your Heart-Song – Episode #119

September 12, 2022

You can and do make a difference in the lives of others.

Hey everyone. I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. As the whole world knows, Queen Elizabeth passed away last week after a long, vital life to age 96. She lived in the spotlight from the time she was a child and was well-loved as the Queen of England since 1952.

Queen Elizabeth was known for having a deep sense of responsibility for her role. She worked long and hard for the kingdom her family has ruled for centuries. She had a warmth for the people of her nation and world, and although being seen as a serious person, she frequently flashed a winning smile. Her blue eyes sparkled. She had a keen business and political sense and boldly spoke her mind. And of course, she had an extraordinary sense of humor. Last June a short video of her and Paddington Bear was released for the international celebration of the 70th anniversary of her reign. Pulling a sandwich from her handbag and using her spoon to tap out a tune with Paddington was evidence of how she allowed herself to enjoy life. She lived the way she wanted to be remembered.

So, what about you and me? We will never have the responsibilities or lives of queens and kings. Even though it would be really fun, we’ll most likely not have an opportunity to shoot a video with Paddington Bear. However, that’s not to say our lives are less meaningful. Your life matters. You have influence. You can and do make a difference in the lives of others.

Heart-Song invites you to message us to set an appointment to create your personal Life Compass Statement. This statement is an intentional reminder to live the way you want to be remembered.

And for a feel-good experience, watch the short video of Queen Elizabeth and Paddington linked in the comments. See you next time!
