Making the World Better One Step at a Time

Making the World Better One Step at a Time

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” ~Anne Frank

I continue to be astonished at the wisdom Anne Frank had at such a young age. Even if her thought above materializes in baby steps, nothing but good can come from it. Opportunities present themselves every day to make the world a little better. Smiling and saying hello as you pass someone instead of simply looking away. Holding the door for the person behind you. Giving up your bus seat for an older person. Saying, “bless you” to a stranger’s sneeze. Whatever the situation, there is a choice between engagement with the world and isolation from it. Change starts small, then works itself into bigger and bigger chunks – all the greats acknowledge that pattern. Today is a chance to make small contributions to a better self and a better world. A big step or a little step is still a step! (You can quote me on that one!)

I stumbled across a great website: Network For Good. It shows all sorts of current, local volunteer opportunities.

“Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!” ~Anne Frank
