There are so many individuals out there who want to make a difference in this world, to change it in some way for the better. So many people are focused on themselves and forget the real value of their own lives. There are many options to making a difference, no matter how small it is. You have no idea what a kind gesture could mean to someone else. Let’s pretend you are having the crappiest day ever, your boyfriend just broke up with you and the position you were trying to get at work got given to someone else. That’s pretty bad, but now imagine you walk out of your work feeling entirely frustrated and a complete stranger who is a customer says to you “I saw you working so hard at work, I’m going to let your manager know what a hard worker you are.” Now, even if that person does that and nothing changes, the fact that someone stood up for you and recognizes your work is appreciated.
There are so many ways we can help those around us in the everyday. So many things we can do, it can be as small as opening the door for someone when their hands are full. It could be as big as giving a friend $200 so they can have money toward a deposit to move. I promise you, everyday you have at least one opportunity to make a positive ripple in the world we live in. And if every tiny thing you do to someone else, they replicate, imagine the world we could have. Imagine a brighter world with more kindness and more love.
I want that world. Don’t you?
