Daily Joys and Simple Pleasures

What Difference Does ONE Make?

Ask any politician who has been victorious in an election so close the votes had to be recounted.  ONE vote makes a difference.
Ask anybody who got the last of a certain blood type for a needed transfusion. One contributor made a difference. 
You make think that your actions do not matter in the larger scheme of things.  In truth, your ONE action might mean the difference between life and death to someone.  Stand up.  Be ONE who makes a difference.

Make Room for a Miracle

In between all the rational explaining we do why there aren’t miracles…just set a little room aside…in case there are.

The Thing You Think You Cannot Do

Famously Eleanor Roosevelt insisted, “You must do the thing you think you
cannot do.”  Eleanor elevated
herself above her fears by lifting her thinking into the realm of what is
possible.

Do you have someone in your life who inspires you?  I have long held Eleanor as a cherished
role model.  I am blessed with an
heroic friend and fellow author, Kathleen Gallagher Everett.  Her daily reminder, borrowed from “Secret Agent L,” is, “Be kind: no
exceptions.”  When she sends a
student on their way she encourages, “Now get out there and do some good in the
world.”  Like, Eleanor, she is
driven toward the good with a practical desire to elevate the experiences and
conditions of whomever she can. 
These women work toward superior circumstances not because they are easy
or convenient but because they are POSSIBLE.

I am blessed to have role models who inspire me to daily act
toward the good.  Steve Maraboli of
EmpoweredLivingRadio.com summarizes our daily opportunities for good in this way,

“One kind gesture, one person at a time, one day at a time.”

As I sauntered away from my work day with the waning dusk
hurrying me home…I whispered my thanks to Eleanor and my friends, for the
myriad ways they reach above the uncertainties of any day and inspire me to remember my own saying,

         “Every
possibility begins with the courage to imagine.”

What possibilities will you have the courage to imagine and
act on today? Now, GET OUT THERE and do that thing you think you cannot do.  Go.
