Back in 2006 I moved from Newcastle in New South Wales up to the Gold Coast in Queensland so that we could be closer to my family.
I then began to look for employment. I was able to sign up with Mission Australia and they put me through some training to get me back into the workforce.
During the course we needed to do several different tasks. One of which was to create a vision-type poster.
I cut out photos from magazines and created a collage of what I want for my life.
We then needed to write on our Vision Poster what we saw as the Goal or Purpose of our life.
I wrote “My Purpose is to Enjoy the Gift of Live & to Empower Others to Enjoy Life.”
This desire and passion has not changed since this time. Although my time has been consumed by just bringing in an income to pay our bills, my passion to Empower others to Live Life to the Full still burns in my heart!
I want to see things radically change in our world in my lifetime! I want to see people set free from the bondage of slavery.
Until the last 10 years I never even realized that slavery was still a problem in today’s society, but now I know that it is not just a small problem, but it is a huge, evil, insidious problem in much of the world.
Children and women are usually the main victims of human slavery, but men are also victims sometimes. Often after natural disasters the slave traders come in (often even before the rescue workers!) and they find orphaned children or disoriented young people and before they know it these people become victims.
I desire to be a voice for these people and to speak out to make their plight known to others!
Let’s agree together that we will take a stand and speak out when we can and make this world a better place for us, our children and future generations.
Until next time, Remember to Enjoy Life, Smile at a Stranger and Make a Difference in the World!
