Easter is a time of new beginnings. I like to think of it as a time to let go of what has gone before and start with a fresh, spring like approach. We all have the opportunity to change how we are in our lives, after all it is all about choices, we choose who and how we are.
Following on from my last post, Do Something For Someone Else This Week, I wonder if we ever really know how much difference we do make in others lives. Of course there are always times when people tell us exactly how we have made a difference to them or for them, but often we have no idea. That kind word to a stranger in the street can have a profound effect on them, even though for us it may just be some random kind comment, but if someone is having a really bad day (and let’s face it we have no idea what they are facing) it can be that ray of sunshine for them, that bright spark that is missing from their lives right now.
We can go through life in a very selfish way, just looking out for number one and not taking any notice of anyone else around us, we can go through life only taking care of those closest to us, our family and friends, or we can go through life and notice others, do something for them, help out selflessly where we can. At the end of the day we might need a stranger to help us out one day too.
What difference will your life make to someone else today?
