A waterfall starts with a single drop.
An old proverb goes: “A waterfall starts with a single drop.” I have always liked that colloquialism because it emphasizes the notion that small efforts can lead to big results & changes. I am reminded of this often when my husband and I go for our walks picking up trash that is strewn throughout the neighborhood. Now, I don’t claim to be a super do-gooder but we almost get offended by the refuse that clutters the green belts of Westlake and Thousand Oaks.
I know we can’t collect all the trash on our walks- not even close. But I can’t help but think if everyone picked up one piece of trash daily, how much better & accountable we would feel about our community, how much healthier our wildlife neighbors would be, and how it might ignite changes in the other areas of our life and our child’s? We all know the impact of social media and how one post could go viral overnight, right?
Well, let’s make the power of the collective have long lasting effects for ourselves, our family, our community, and bigger yet, our planet!
