A dear friend of mind keeps this wonderful blog. It is filled with her musings and wisdom.
Please take a moment to read this article, a call to action, whatever it is, for your life.
“Every action we take is a grain of sand. It either builds the land or joins the ocean in the cycle of waves coming to and leaving the shore for the bottom of the ocean. A single grain of sand may have the opportunity to do both in its lifetime.”
“Even those of us most insistent on resisting the activities of activism and the activities of corruption are changing the world one day at a time. Each of us, in whatever manner we live our lives, is presenting an example. The choices we make in our personal lives are instructive to those around us, and—if you are a relatively public persona—others around the world. How we choose to present ourselves to the world, the type of work we do, the way we handle—or resist—our personal and professional responsibilities, the way we speak to and interact with others, the choices we make in our spending, in our travel, in love: all of these are changing the world.”
“So choose to pour your sand onto the shore and strengthen the weak more than you allow your sands to sink to the bottom of the glutton’s ocean. No one –not even God—has the power to ensure that every minute action they take benefits only the weakest. However, we all have the power to choose actions that give more benefit to the weak and oppressed than to the bloated coffers of the rapacious.”
