Every waking day, is a brand new chance at life. Every breath, is a new opportunity. Families, friends, careers, relationships, finances, personal issues and struggles and what have you, we all are bombarded and left exhausted. Like a marathon we’re running, that seems to only go on and never stops. But life is not as hard or busy as we think it is. We just need to take things easier and not so personal, and help other people as well. A few days ago, I had woken up early in the morning and spent that extra hour scrolling through Facebook, when something caught my eye. It was called “Make A Difference Day”. By that time, I had already been behind schedule and needed to get going. I had no time to go in-depth, but on my way to work, I started reflecting, and thinking how we have forgotten that we are living in life for a purpose, a purpose far greater than just living one day at a time. We need to make everyday count, not just in our lives, but in other people’s lives too!
“Make A Difference Day” was established to help and encourage people to take one day a year to try to make a difference in the world. It is where we should appreciate and work on delivering a real message that can help everyone in the world.
When we talk about how you can celebrate and commemorate this day wisely, there is no right or wrong way to do it, but there is a way where you will be happy and satisfied with how you are helping the world. It’s not as big or complicated as you think it is. Start by writing down a list of habits you do wrong and need to change, like throwing trash on the streets. Think of something simple you can do to brighten someone’s day, like sending motivating posts to your friends on their social media accounts. You’d be surprised by how the simplest of actions you do to other people, would transform your day as well. Acts of kindness go a long way, think of donating your old clothes, accessories, toys, or food for people who are in need.
Leave it to your imagination and set a target for yourself, a target for the efforts and contributions you want to change the world with. Don’t let the ideas stop with you, talk about this with your co-workers, friends and family to brainstorm and discuss more ideas. There are a lot of opportunities for those who want to help in making a difference to get involved in, and many other initiatives and organizations you can get in touch with to help in any way possible. Always remember that making a difference doesn’t need huge amounts of donations, just a sincere heart and a hand willing to help.
