Sometimes life feels so busy and complicated that it’s hard to see how one person can change anything. But although we can’t always see what impact our choices might have on the world, it’s likely that we are making much more of a difference than we know.

Word-art that says "One person can make a difference, and everyone can try." - John F. Kennedy

Bringing positive change to the world doesn’t necessarily require big dramatic projects. Often it’s our small day-to-day decisions that have more lasting effects, whether or not they might turn into anything that can be measured in terms of conventional success.

  1. Yes, you are right, 1 can make more of a difference then you think.

  2. It is like the ripple effect — the effect of one act starts the ripple effect.
    Thank you for sharing with Nurturing Thursday!

  3. I love the quote Meg! Thanks so much for this post. Sometimes it feels so overwhelming looking at the big picture and the little moves feel like they don’t add up to much. Thank you for the reminder that we don’t always see or know the positive impact we may have by moving forward little by little.

  4. Couldn’t agree more, Meg! Just think what can be achieved when we all do our bit, say a kind word, help in some small way… Canyons are forged one drop of water at a time 🙂

  5. Yes, it is true. I have experienced this myself.

  6. Hi Meg, so funny to see this post, the first think a thought is how bad one person can be that can destroy many things, I had an example of it Wednesday here at work. But I guess, depend on us, to be the another person to fix things up. Well have a great day!
