One of the central themes of Mitchell's Journey is that by lifting others, we too are lifted. Here's the paradox: when struggle we tend to focus on our struggle. Yet, when we lose ourselves in the service of others, we often find ourselves ... even a better version of ourselves. I can speak from personal experience that when I am suffering and choose to serve others despite my sorrows, my own burdens seem light.
So, I want to introduce you to Karalee Bennett, a single mother of two, one of which as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, the same condition Mitchell had.
In this short video, she shares a personal discovery on how she's learned to take care of herself while caring for others. I was so inspired by her decision to serve, we made a video so we could share her story.
Mitchell's Journey isn't just the story of a little boy who died, it's the ongoing message of hope, faith and learning to live while we still have time.
Wherever you are and no matter your circumstance, I hope you take a moment to find and serve someone around you. I promise you won't regret it. It's a paradox with a promise.
