Much of our lives do not consist in doing great things. Most of us have never won prizes or hit the headlines. We won’t be mentioned when the names of those who have changed history are listed. And yet, each of us can change history. Small acts can and do impact lives, even if we are unaware of it.
As we know, every great journey begins with a single step. So let’s beware of dismissing the acts of kindness you do to mates. Each word of care and each gesture of compassion changes the world forever.
Today I’m reminding myself that small deeds and quiet words shape and reshape our lives and the lives of others. While might and majesty might light up Tik Tok, the minor and the mundane might just save a life.
