We quite often feel that we are just one person and that if we throw out our plastic bottle just once, it won’t make a difference, because it’s just one bottle.
But if everybody in a city of a million people did this just once, that’s 1 million plastic bottles in our landfill.
The same goes for using water, electricity and gas in our homes.
On the flip side of the coin, if every person in the city did one kind thing each day, that is 1 million acts of kindness in that city, and that can make an extraordinary difference as well.
So, the next time you catch yourself saying, “it’s just this once”, remember that your decision DOES have an impact on the BIG PICTURE.
As adults – parents, grandparents, teachers – we are role models for the next generation. Getting into the habits of being intentional with even the smallest of choices that we make is where it all begins.
My latest kid’s book is all about this. You get to follow along as one little guy goes through his day. He makes decisions that might seem small and insignificant, but they are actually changing the world for the better.
It’s called Looking at the BIG PICTURE, and it’s available on Amazon today!
I wrote the book because I’m a mother of 3 and I know that they love to be superheroes in their own little world. I’m not sure if it’s thanks to Dora the Explorer or Paw Patrol, where the characters are always off to save everything, but I figured I should capitalize on this drive they’ve found and teach them the power that they have in the choices that they make throughout their day.
If the book even reaches one family and makes them a little bit more aware of the choices they are making, I have made a difference!
I would love your support, and your feedback! You can buy the book here, and after you’ve had a chance to read it, I would really REALLY appreciate your feedback on Amazon!
Thank you and Happy Reading!
