September 11th. It’s one of those days that you wish fell on a weekend so that, as the author of a week-day daily email, you don’t have to try and find the right thing to say.
I don’t think it matters where in the world you live, September 11th will forever be ingrained in our minds. It’s like the day Princess Diana died … everyone remembers where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news.
Writers with a far better way with words than me will capture the feeling of today just beautifully so I’m not going to even try.
Instead, I just wanted to take a moment today to remind us both to go and do something lovely with someone you care about.
(Or even someone you don’t care about particularly. There’s something fun about being kind to a random stranger.)
It doesn’t need to be some grand gesture. You’re not trying to change the world with your one action.
“Not all of us can do great things but we can do small things with great love.” Mother Teresa.
We talked last week about small actions, day after day, making a massive impact on the world. What if you started that right now, today?
One small act of love.
Together, you and I can change the world. Seriously. You can do that. I believe in you.
You just need to start, small. One act of love.
