Posts Tagged ‘can do’

I revisited a thought today that I’ve shared in various forms before, but I think it bears repeating.

There’s a lot I can’t do.

I can’t fix the climate crisis, raise the water levels out west, convert all plastic waste into useful, non-polluting material, solve fusion energy or cure cancer. Wish I could, but I can’t.

But there is a lot I can do.

I can help those around me, contribute to a better environment, donate what I can spare to those who need help, write a funny story, share brownies with the neighbors, be kind (even to that man who was rude to me in the store this afternoon, he was probably having a hard day), and generally focus on what’s good and try to make more of that.

And the great part is, so can you.
