Are You an Irritant or an Anchor?

Sometimes, I feel I am more a grain of sand than a rock – more of an irritant than an anchor. But, come to think of it, a grain of sand is at the heart of the pearl.

Are you more of an irritant or an anchor?

If we are able to transcend ourselves, devoting ourselves to someone else, or a cause greater than ourselves, then we might, at times, appear as an irritant (not doing the things that others would bid us to do), but it would ultimately be to our benefit, in finding our purpose in life. Not only would we benefit ourselves, but we would benefit others.
