“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” ~ Jane Goodall
“The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of tiny pushes of each honest worker.” ~ Helen Keller
Every day, we labor in our efforts with family, in work, and on our spiritual paths. Sometimes, it feels like we move through these efforts on auto pilot, taking care of what we must, but not considering the affect it has around us because we are so busy “taking care of things”.
But…no matter who we are or what we “do”…we always have an impact on the world around us. We are all energy, and energy moves in waves, so those waves undulate and bump into each other and change the way the energy moves. Even when we think we are curled up in our own worlds and focusing there…we are always touching other worlds too.
Our energy leaves an impression in the flow of energy that pulses around us…even when we do not think we have an effect. Or are not aware of it. If we integrate that little bit of consciousness on a daily basis, we can gain clarity which will help us be in the moment and consider what energy we are “putting out there”. And, we will become more aware of our inner thoughts and intentions, so that we can make better choices about what we think, how we act and react, and how we treat ourselves and others.
Because…every day…we make a difference in the world around us. What kind of difference do we want to make?
And make no mistake…all of those little pushes that we make every day to grow, help, and change the world around us count. It makes a difference. We are all heroes just for getting up in the morning and facing each new day with good intention and courage.
Know you make a difference and move the world along, no matter how insignificant you feel. Your energy touches the world and contributes to its path. Be the hero that you are…and make that difference a good one.
