Have you ever felt like you were just one among so many? Maybe you have thought, “I’m only one person, how can I make a difference?” “I want to change things around me, but I don’t know how.” Perhaps the environment in your home or at work is not as it should be. You would like to make some changes in your family, but you don’t know where to start.
Many of us never influence people in a positive way because we don’t think we can do it alone. Fear convinces most of us that we do not have what it takes to make a difference in someone’s life. Lack of confidence in ourselves produces apathy and eventually the belief that we cannot have an influence on those around us. We wait for someone else to start so that we can help. We don’t want to fail.
It only takes one candle to dispel the darkness.
It only takes one tree to start a forest.
It only takes one drop of water to start an ocean.
It only takes one “hello” to help someone who feels lonely.
It only takes one smile to brighten someone’s day.
It only takes one word of hope to get someone through the day.
It only takes one act of appreciation to show your spouse you care.
It only takes one trip to the park to create a lifelong memory for your kids.
It only takes one person to encourage the disappointed.
It only takes one person to love the unlovely.
It only takes one person to comfort the hurting.
It only takes one person to help the needy.
It only takes one person to make a difference in the lives of those around us.
Why not let that one person be YOU?!
No one expects you to change “the” world; just start with “your” world…one person…one act…one step at a time.
