Today I Learned . . . Everyone Has A Purpose

I am privileged in my professional life to come in contact with some amazing people.

Some are in the best situations in their lives (retiring, wealthy, etc.).

Others, unfortunately, find themselves in the most challenging situations of their lives.  Many times, it is a situation that they could have never imagined they would be involved in.

Believe it or not, even as an attorney and judge, I have come to believe that most, if not everyone, that I come in contact with, are generally good people, trying to do what is best for them and their loved ones.

Sometimes, however, even with the best of intentions, life can get away from them.  I see it as good people who may have made a mistake or found themselves in a bad situation.

And believe it or not, most step up to the plate and take responsibility for their actions.

Today, however, I learned that no matter why or how I come in contact with people, they all have a purpose.  And how I deal with them, and how I interact and resolve their issues, can have a huge impact on them, their lives and their loved ones.

This is especially true if they are young.

I’m going to make sure I think of that going forward.
