In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, you may be wondering, what can I do? You may have a lot of financial resources or not much at all. Elizabeth Gilbert posted this, and I found it so true - "Don't worry so much about having the biggest impact that you forget to have an impact at all. And this doesn't just go for times of disaster, either. Arguing about efficacy is a great way to forever stall generosity. Just make a move in the direction of mercy — that's always a good start."
This philosophy is not only important to remember in the wake of a disaster, but every single day. A complete stranger could be having a terrible day, and you could simply hold the door open for them, or let their vehicle in front of yours. A small gesture such as this could completely change the course of their day, which in turn, could change their life. I personally like to surprise people with small treats, such as in the photo above. It is amazing how such a small gesture of kindness can bring a HUGE smile to someone's face.
Do whatever you can to make a difference, there is no gift too small to the world.
