One of the perks of always having a notebook on me is that I’m able to jot down whatever thoughts come into my mind at any given time – usually with the intention of expanding upon them at a later date.
However, this note that I took last Sunday at church is so simple and so pure I am choosing to post it as is (with the addition of current event links in the beginning).
Enjoy some unedited musings:
There are so many issues in the world...
- refugee crisis
- climate change
- sex trafficking
And sometimes it is absolutely paralyzing to me. Sometimes, it stresses me out and I get scared and I want to run away and hide and cry. And sometimes, I want to quit.
Because what do I do? Post silly sayings and write stories about Happiness?
Maybe that’s okay. I may not be able to reverse deforestation.
But I can make someone smile.
Just because I can’t save everyone, doesn’t mean I can’t save one.
Just because I can’t do it all, doesn’t mean I can’t do anything.
If I can make one person smile, then I am doing what I set out to do.
Don’t be paralyzed by what you cannot do. Be energized by all that you can.
