What is your dash? Most people struggle with why on earth they exist. Do you know what you are meant to do? And are you doing it?
Reshaping your dash is an intentional evaluation of how you’re living your life, and exploring ways you can make subtle changes to enact huge differences. Who doesn’t want to transform their everyday from mediocrity to meaning?
- All of our lives are shaped by a dash, but not all dashes are shaped the same.
- Your reason for existing is as unique as your DNA and fingerprint.
- Your unique fingerprint exists so you can leave a unique imprint no one else can leave.
- The heartbeat of living is to discover your special talents, and do something with them.
- Every day is a gift offered to help you reshape your dash, and influence the dashes of others.
- Open the presence of adventure.
- Unwrap the gift of serving others.
- Cherish the presence of your relationships.
- Accept the gift of child’s play.
- Identify the people, places, and things impacted by how you live out your dash.
