Anyone who knows me can attest to my affinity for the long-running BBC science-fiction drama Doctor Who. The Doctor is a Time Lord, the last of his kind, traveling through time and space as he offers assistance to those in need.
As I was considering a title for my blog, I found this quotation from the Doctor Who Christmas Special:
"In 900 years of time and space
I've never met anyone who wasn't important."
Much like The Doctor, we all travel from time to time and place to place throughout our lives, but do we attempt to find the best in people, to recognize what makes them tick, to understand their importance in this world? Do we stop at points in time during our journeys to learn life lessons from those around us?
This is what I want to do as I travel through my own time and space. I want to take a moment to appreciate those I encounter, express gratitude to those who have have taught me life lessons, then share these experiences with others.
