I thought that this was particularly appropriate as we approach the New Year:
What if you could do one thing that would
change your mind
change your attitude
change your day
change your life
change the world—would you do it?
Wondering what that one thing might be?
The answer is amazingly simple.
That Onething is whatever you want it to be.
And, what if that one person were joined by thousands-even millions-of other one persons, each doing just ONE THING toward creating a healthy planet? Guilt, fear and helplessness won't save us, but rolling up our sleeves and pitching in will. Avoid the overwhelm, participate in ONE THING, and experience how good it feels to make a difference.
Wherever you are, whatever you're doing, each and every moment of the day there is one thing you can do to honor life, one thing that will honor you and the world you live in. It might be using cloth bags at the grocery store, not driving one day a week, reading a story to a child, or smiling at a stranger. We live in one world. Nothing can happen to you that doesn't happen to me. Nothing can happen to them that doesn't happen to us. For better or worse, we are in this together. Let's make it better.
What will you do?
I'm going to do a random act of kindness every day.
Have a Happy New Year's Eve.
