Lifespan – Abilities Illuminated

It Really is This Simple


A note from Robin Devore…

Because of an unexpected medical leave, I had to work from home for several weeks.  During that time, I was reminded how fortunate I am to work at a place that I call my “second home.”  I call it my “second home” because for almost 24 years, I have grown with the individuals we support and the LIFESPAN ambassadors who provide that support.

Over those two-plus-decades, I have come to realize that everything I do each and everyday has some type of impact on both the LIFESPAN individuals and the LIFESPAN ambassadors.  Some days, it’s as simple as sharing a smile or giving a hug.  Other days, it’s much more challenging as we work to give voice to those who don’t have a voice and advocate for those who have no one left to fight for them.

At the end of the day, I know that what I’ve done has made a difference in someone’s life.

I don’t have a “job.”   I have a lifelong learning experience with incredible gratification.  I truly get more back than I will ever be able to give.

As a reminder to everyone —

do what you love and enjoy,

do what brings you happiness,

smile at least three times a day,

and let go of the things that take up negative space in your head.

“Be You” and be happy!

Then go change the world one smile and one hug at a time.
