Our Impact on the World

No matter what has happened this year or what will happen next year, one thing is for sure: we each have an impact on the world. Mother Theresa once said “I know what I do is a drop in the ocean but if it didn’t exist it would be missing.”
We are all so wrapped up in the events of our own life that we rarely zoom out of this perspective and look at the bigger picture. Let’s zoom out for a minute here and take a look around. What do you see? Suddenly the picture is clearer because our own life and our own emotions are not in the way. From this perspective how can you impact the life of someone else? What is 1 thing you can do differently that will have the biggest impact on your life and the life of someone else? It could be as simple as parking your car in a different spot, not smoking when you’re around others or as big as volunteering to help build schools in Africa. Whatever it is just remember that you are not alone. We are all part of a big colourful canvas and we each play a very important role in making it look the way it does. To make their work beautiful, artists put their heart and soul into it and the painting becomes an extension of who they are. Make the impact you will have on the world an extension of the beautiful person you are.
Whatever you take out of this post, if there is one thing and one thing only that you’re ready and willing to do in 2010, make it this one:
