Taking his morning walk on the beach, a man sees thousands of starfish washed ashore. The tide is going down and these starfish are stranded on the beach. The man sees, ahead of him, a child bending down, picking up something, and throwing it into the ocean. As he gets near, he sees that the child is picking up starfish, one by one, and throwing them back into the ocean. The man says to the boy “There’s so many starfish on the beach, you can’t make a difference.” The boy looks at the adult and says nothing. He simply bends down and picks up another starfish and throws it back into the ocean. Then the child speaks and says “It made a difference to that one.”
Let us take our ability to respond, to speak, to love, and to make a difference and go out there and change our world, one thought, one word, one action at a time. We are not victims — unless we choose to be. We are not powerless — unless we give up our power to act. We are not too late — unless we give up.
Ask yourSelf what you can do to make a difference in your world… What you are inspired to do may seem small, or it may seem monumental. But if you act on your inner voice’s guidance, you will feel rewarded beyond words. You will feel “on track” with your purpose.
