Wake Up Call! – Every Act Of Yours!


Every small act of yours combines with others to make the world a better place.

I was out on my three mile walk in Palm Springs when I remembered that the park ahead was base camp for the annual AIDS Walk. I don’t know what I was expecting but I was surprised by how many young parents and their kids – some even in strollers – were participating.

As I wondered about whether I had a stereotype or had just never thought about who participated in such a walk I was interrupted.

Two young children with their parents and grandmother were next to me at an intersection and the kids smiled and said hello. I said, “How wonderful you’re doing this as a family!” The grandmother, leaning on her cane, nodded and said in her broken English, “We try to do good; to make life better.” Then we crossed the intersection wishing each other well.

I felt inspired and grateful; I thought about the decency and goodness of people. I wonder what act of yours and mine will combine with others to make a difference today?


  • Celebrate every small act of goodness
  • Be aware of the opportunities life presents each day to make the world a better place

Notice how your enjoyment and engagement with life is enlivened!
