Everyday Ways to Make a Difference
So, now that we don’t feel the need to save the world all on our own, how can we make a difference? There are more ways to do this than there are words in this blog post. Making a difference can be anything, like knowing when to hold your tongue or manage your temper. It could be learning to listen, I mean really listen, to people. Or it could be taking the time to: notice someone’s new dress or haircut; efforts at the workplace; punctuality etc.
One of the greatest things you can do in this world is to remind someone that they are not alone. Acknowledging their efforts or listening to them talk about how they are feeling can literally impact someone’s entire experience on life! It is not for you to decide which kind word out of your mouth is valuable to someone. Just try your best to be there. To be kind more than you’re not. This makes a difference. To others, and to you.
Consider your Actions
Who is Your ONE?
My challenge to you today is to ask yourself this same question. If all you had to do was help one person, would that be enough? This isn’t a ‘choose who you would save’ question. This is about knowing that doing your best is enough. If you show up with an open heart each and every day you will be helping someone. It may be a smile for a stranger that was the kindest thing they saw all week, or it may be lending your couch to a friend when they have nowhere to stay. These choices in life absolutely make a difference. Plus, they shape who we are and they create the life that we live. Kindness and compassion changes lives every day.
I’m writing this because I think many of us need to think about this. If you put your heart and soul into something beautiful and you touch one person, is it enough? I mean, you’ve made a difference to them! Do you get to let yourself off the hook and breathe easy knowing you have finally done something worthy? Think about how you might have helped someone in this life. What seemingly small thing did you do to make a difference to them? See everyone you meet as your potential ‘one’. After all, wouldn’t you like to be seen as that some ‘one’ special in someone else’s eyes?
