The 2 Most Important Days of Your Life

February 22, 2012

I heard an amazing quote yesterday while watching an interview with Oscar nominee Viola Davis. She said:

They say that the two most important days in a person’s life are the day you were born, and the day you discover why you were born.

How striking in its simplicity is that thought. Right?

I was born April 11th, 1981. It was a Saturday. The Masters golf tournament was broadcasted on the television in the hospital. Or so my Dad reminds me of every year. :)

I just typed out that I’m not yet sure if that second most important day in my life has happened for me, but the more I think about it, if I’m not sure it has, I’m sure it hasn’t.

Mull this one around for yourself today. See what it stirs up.
