We’re just a small spec in this universe if you think about it. I mean, just study a picture of the earth taken from the moon. In the vast universe of things, we’re very small and sometimes we can feel insignificant. At the same time though, we are as powerful on this earth as we choose to be. What do I mean? Each one of us have the power to be significant, each one of us are essential to making this world a better place. Every single person can make a difference and positively impact this world. That impact starts with you and me.
This week I encourage you to do something for your community, the environment, for a stranger or a loved one. Do something that’s a positive impact. It can be something big, something small or something in-between. Just get involved and make a difference.
A dollar can’t really buy much these days. But if we got a large enough group to donate a dollar or two….those dollars can add up, and add up quick. The same thing goes for our acts of service. One thing you do can make a huge impact! One thing isn’t asking for too much, is it?
Some questions to ponder: What are you passionate about? What changes do you want to see in this world? What makes you come alive and fuels that empowerment state of mind? What’s important to you about the environment? Who’s in your life that needs a little extra love or support right now? What are some ways you can you help a stranger?

The song "Legendary" by Welshly Arms is what I'll be dancing to our for Vertical Freedom Showcase this Saturday.
Part of the song lyrics are:
“We’re gonna be legends, we’re gonna get their attention. What we’re doing here ain’t just scary, it’s about to be legendary.”
“You gotta live without the columbines
Let everybody hear your battle cry”
This all starts with DOING. So I challenge you, pick one thing you can do to make this world a better place, and then go do it!
