“To make a difference in someone’s life you don’t have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful or perfect. You just have to care.” —Mandy Hale
I’ve always been inspired by Mother’s Teresa’s philosophy about how important it is to create a life that has room for, perhaps even prioritizes, helping others. She reminded us that something as simple as a smile can make a world of difference in someone’s life, and that if we cannot help many others, just help whom we can…even just one other person.
I’m not suggesting you walk around like some kind of a one-person United Way, or a wealthy philanthropist who, actually, eats Ramen every night. Helping usually doesn’t even involve money. It involves caring. Kindness. Awareness.
Consider this: Today, make a commitment to help one person you do not know—in your own way, according to your style, your talents, your heart.
Then see what happens…to you.
