The next person we meet is the one we can connect with, engage with, encourage, inspire.
As we were once and are continually connected with, engaged with, encouraged and inspired.
Will it be through a smile, a kind word, a helping hand, a reminder, a push in the right direction, a hug, a real conversation?
I cannot individually change the world.
I can individually change my world.
MY world that intersects YOUR world that becomes OUR world that visits THEIR world that travels to OTHER worlds that all together impact THE world.
Pass it on. Whatever you’ve been given, whatever you’ve learned the hard way, whatever you’re reaching out for, whatever you’ve barely got a grasp on, whatever you love, whatever fills you, whatever ignites you, whatever awakens you. It might be the next piece of someone’s puzzle. That puzzle they assemble that someone else will look at and decide to paint. The picture they paint that someone else will see and decide to write about. The story they write that someone else will read and decide to live. The life they live that someone else will see and realize life is worth living. That life may be the next person I meet. The one I can connect with, engage with, encourage, inspire or be encouraged and inspired by.
Pass it on.
“A hundred times a day I remind myself that my inner and outer lives are based on the labors of other people, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.” – Albert Einstein
