Small Pieces, Big Voices
There comes a time when we realize doing things simply for our own benefit does not fulfill us anymore. We all come to this crossroad at a different point in our journey, but what I think is so important to remember is that we are all capable of instilling change, no matter how small. We are capable of leaving our mark on this beautiful world.
So many times I have been told, “Maja, you can’t save the world.” But I can try. Even if in the end our world is doomed, does that mean that we should stop trying to make it a better place? Does that mean each individual cannot choose to act with integrity?
I know we are each a small piece of this huge puzzle of humanity but that shouldn’t leave us feeling insignificant. I matter, you matter, WE ALL MATTER! Now if we could all just realize how much our actions impact not only ourselves, but others in our community and the world. Imagine an entire community of passionate individuals acting mindfully and with integrity. This is not to say that we do not already do such things, we do. There are days however, when we feel our efforts to give back haven’t been a huge success. When those times come, keep pushing onward.
I’m not crazy, I realize we are each just 1 person out of 9 billion. We may be small pieces of the puzzle, but our voices are big. If no one ever thought they could, on an individual level, make a difference then no one ever would. We have to believe we can do it, believe that our actions matter in the grander scheme of things. Live life purposefully and passionately, whatever you decide to do with it.
Some may say, “Who’s to say we, ordinary people, can change the world?”
We say, “Who’s to say we can’t?”
Get out there and recycle, volunteer and give back any way that you can. Together we can do great things.
