Your smallest actions add up to something big

12 Jan

“For want of a nail, the shoe was lost. For want of the shoe, the horse was lost. For want of the horse, the rider was lost. For want of the rider, the battle was lost. For want of the battle, the kingdom was lost. And all for the want of a horseshoe nail!” – Old English rhyme

Everything you do makes a difference. Even if you’re not on the front lines leading the effort, you have a contribution to make. Without your contribution, no matter how small, so many other things would never happen. The world needs what you have to offer. You have no idea how the simplest of your everyday actions can effect your child, and even people you’ve never met. Chances are, you’ll never know. But if you’re looking for a purpose to work toward, all you need is the desire and the right perspective. Define yourself as your task, and that’s all you’ll ever be. Define yourself as your contribution to your family, and suddenly you’re a very important part of a bigger picture. The biggest pictures are the ones where there’s room for everyone to be seen.
