Thought for Today - December 1, 2023

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.

Mother Teresa

Sometimes, looking at the vastness of the world and its complex issues can feel overwhelming. It's like standing at the edge of an ocean, feeling small against the endless waves. But remember, every ocean is made up of drops, and every change starts with an action, no matter how small. It’s about doing what we can, where we can, and knowing that it counts.

Every act of kindness, every word of support, every moment of courage—it's these things that send out ripples of change into the world. These ripples can spread far wider than we can see, touching lives and inspiring others in ways we might never fully understand. It's the volunteer hours that build communities, the conscious choices that protect the environment, and the everyday choices that shape our societies.

So don't underestimate the power of the small but mighty stone you have in your hand—the actions you take in pursuit of a better world. Throw it with intention, and watch as the ripples reach out to touch the horizon. You may not see the full effect of the waves you create, but take heart in the knowledge that they are out there, moving, growing, and joining with others to form a current strong enough to shape the future.
