On a day to day basis, what are we doing for others? Do we take the time to volunteer? Do we donate time, goods, or funds as much as we should? It’s not that we don’t want to—life is just so busy that we forget, or think we don’t have the time.
It is difficult at times to feel like we can make a difference. We feel overwhelmed by the negative events we hear about in the news and think there is little we can do to help. However, when we have the ability to make an impact, no matter how small, it’s imperative to act. Making a difference doesn’t have to be a grand gesture, and it’s true, no problem can be solved instantaneously. We have to work together. Helping others starts with spreading kindness. It’s not always easy, but it’s worth it.
