"Everyone is cut from a tapestry of humanity to be a designer original, never to be duplicated. Each person's unique contribution to this tapestry needs to be carefully and tightly woven so the fabric remains vibrant and strong for all posterity." Susan R. Moeder, LMHC


This is an excellent way to "leave your mark" and to discover a greater sense of yourself and of yourself in relation to others. Begin documenting the unique, important, meaningful, and ongoing contributions you have made during your lifetime that will influence others for generations. This is also a powerful way to honor others who have influenced your life.
