Some people have a receiving mindset. I mean, what’s the point of doing something if everyone isn’t going to hand you gold medals and cheer for you? (joking here)
Surprisingly, (or not), the human race, no matter who you are, wants some sort of recognition. It’s why we participate in sports, want a promotion, or work to get that PhD. It’s natural.
However, the real world is knocking, and you realize just because you buy a reusable grocery bag and use it doesn’t mean you’ll get a standing ovation. But doesn’t it feel good when you know you made a difference in the world? Saved a turtle from eating the plastic bag? Or used and listened to the cliché, save a tree?
Today, my message to you it is just as valuable to do those small little things you are performing, don’t stop making a change in the world just because you think no one notices. Because we do. Someday, those actions will add up, just as the actions I send you monthly that (I hope) you carry out are, little by little, making a difference.
P.S. It’s never too late to carry out the last action! I mean, if you really liked this post you would love to know why you shouldn’t buy the bear! Or why beeing a pollinator and spreading the word about Beegether.org is a great idea!
