SIMPLY MAKING A DIFFERENCE

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one asking myself “Do I make a difference in this world?” and “How do I make a difference?” Sometimes I tell myself that we all make a difference in our own way. The thing is, sometimes it cant be a great change, but obviously, sometimes changes can be bad… But now let’s talk about the great changes. Making a difference can be as easy as helping an old man carrying is grocery bags, giving someone the best advices you have or doing volunteering.
Surfing on the Internet, I found this website giving tons of ideas to make a change: http://www.generationon.org/global/65-ways-make-difference. So I really suggest to everyone wondering how to make a change to go check that out. I didn’t know that simple things like that could change something. Well, there were some of these ideas that I already knew it could make a difference, but I found out that there were a lot more to do. For example reading a story to kids, or sharing your talent to others. The last one sounds a little bit weird, but actually, after a quick reflection, I think sharing our talent to others can be inspiring for them. What could be more important then hope, honestly?
I also watched a sequence from a Taylor Mali show and he was explaining how teachers can make a difference. That was truly inspiring (and a little bit funny as well!), so I also highly recommend to watch this. I assume his performance is exaggerated but it is hiding a true revelation in it, that’s why I really like it. What he is revealing is almost shocking because of the realism it holds.
