Never underestimate your ability to make someone else’s life better– even if you never know it. Greg Louganis
Sometimes you can see exactly the difference you made in someone’s life. But often you can’t.
Maybe that’s because you’ll never see this person again, but your random act of kindness just restored a little bit of their faith in people.
Maybe you said the right thing at the right time and while it feels like a small thing to you, it changes how someone’s thinks of themselves forever. You couldn’t have known what they needed to hear, and you can’t imagine what’s possible for them now.
Maybe your gift’s impact will grow in depth and strength in ways that takes generations to appreciate, because helping a child get an education can change forever the opportunities that child has when she grows up and the opportunities her children will have.
Maybe you won’t see all of the ripples you create that go on to touch more lives. But that’s ok. You don’t have to see the results. You just have to know it’s possible.
