This is something so close to my heart. I truly believe that every little action we take can have a massive impact on everything. Too often we just let it go because we think that what we do will not be enough. So we just drop it rather than doing our little bit.
A good example is recycling. I had a discussion lately about it, when a friend tossed aluminum foil in the bin. It was only a little piece. When I stopped him (as it was at my house) and fished it out of the general bin to put it in the recycling one he looked at me and asked me why bother for such a little piece.
I explained to him that there lies the issue. We stop bothering when we feel the “thing” is not big enough. What we don’t realize is that little bit by little bit will add up to one big junk eventually. In regards to trash, in regards to harsh words, in regards to actions. In regards to everything.
Like ants. One tiny creature and yet they, as a group, are capable of such big things. Look at how they work together and what a creation an anthill actually is…
If only we would all realize that it’s the little things we do that eventually make a difference. We could do so much. We could influence so many things we believe we can’t.
So please, keep doing your little things. Stick to it. Make that difference…
