AYD - June 1, 2012 - Be a Contribution

" Strolling along the edge of the sea, a man catches sight of a young woman who appears to be engaged in a ritual dance.  She stoops down, then straightens to her full height, casting her arm out in an arc.  Drawing closer, he sees that the beach around her is littered with starfish, and she is throwing them one by one into the sea.  He lightly mocks her: "There are stranded starfish as far as the eye can see, for miles up the beach. What difference can saving a few of them possibly make?"  Smiling, she bends down and once more tosses a starfish out over the water, saying serenely, "It certainly makes a difference to this one."
- Passage from 'The Art of Possibility' - Chapter 4, Being a Contribution

Sometimes, a little goes a long way.  And if we all believe it, our 'little' compounds with the little offered by others.  It all adds up.  You might be the one that starts it.  You may never know, if your contribution was paid forward by another, but if you feel it, if you believe that it is, then you will feel better about making another contribution.  And there is another way, that your first contribution carries on making a difference.

I only ask that you just take a moment with your thoughts of today's little passage.  Reflect on some little contribution you have made...and enjoy being the contributor as much as someone appreciated your contribution.

Have a wonderful weekend.
