It's the little things that make the difference. They make me happy, make me smile, make me feel all whimsical inside. Things like...
~ children's smiles
~ blowing dandelions
~ chatting and being goofy with a friend
~ colored pens
~ dancing in the grocery store until I realize someone is watching me (it was this older lady and she just grinned and kept going ;D)
~ hyper puppy dogs
~ perfectly-creamed coffee
~ new books
~ those times when people look at you and make eye contact and smile. And it just convinces you that there is still goodness in this world.
So what's my point in all this? It's quite simple, really.
A recent prayer of mine is for God to used me to bring people to Him. For His light to shine from me. And after overlooking what was right in front of me for quite awhile...I came to a conclusion.
We don't have to do anything drastic to touch people's lives.
And what do I mean by that? It's the little things that make the difference. A smile, a laugh, acknowledging someone's presence even if they're a total stranger. Be open and happy. Let His light and His love shine through you.
One person may only be able to touch a handful of lives, but what if we all did this? What if we all tried to reach out to those around us? The impact would be multiplied so many times over.
Wanna join me? Take up the challenge and strive everyday to reach out to those around you with what you have -- a smile, your time, your love. Whatever they need that you have. That's all, nothing drastic.
Hopefully y'all could something out of that disjointed collection of thoughts...until next time!
P.S. Between wisdom teeth removal, Camp NaNoWriMo, end of the school-year gunk, and life in general, this blog has been neglected lately. Hopefully I'll get back in the groove soon, and maybe until then y'all can appreciate the good parts of my sporadic-ness. :)
