Making a difference

You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make. ~ Jane Goodall

This quote reminds of the butterfly effect—the impact a butterfly flapping its wings makes—how that single act of a small animal can have such a profound effect on the world. And then I remember that everything I do and say has the potential to impact others around me. A smile. A kind word. An act of politeness. The ripples go out from there.
