Your impact is greater than your actions

When we transact with life, we expect to get back what we give.

We also expect to receive, in a very specific shape and form, the good that we need from others in exchange for the good that we did for them.

When we expect things to come back to us in a specific way, all the good that doesn’t match our expectations will be ignored, taken for granted, or even rejected without us realising that we’re destroying the very good that we’re praying for.

Like a drop of water that causes a ripple that meets other ripples along its way and gains momentum.

The drop of water had no idea that what it started could turn into a wave. It did not set out to start a wave, nor did it plan to meet other ripples along the way to form the wave that changed the shoreline.

It was just true to its nature, and it’s that nature that inspired or spawned an impact greater than it ever thought possible.

We’re drops of water in the ocean of humanity.

When we own our contribution towards creating good in our lives, its impact is felt for generations to come, and by every life touched by every generation that is spawned from our lineage.

Sadly, the same is true for the harm that we cause. Until someone steps up and decides to start that ripple of positive change.

Own your life. Don’t transact with it. Don’t hold back because you’re waiting for the perfect moment, or the perfect partner.

Be true to yourself, and create space for others to be true to themselves.

Break the cycle that weighs you down. Humanity will be all the better for it.
