Each day, between us, we can just feed one person at a time.
“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.” – Mother Teresa
True, there are so many in need it can feel overwhelming. And yes, some people are looking for a handout and not a hand up.
My friend Murray made an interesting observation this week as we remember the 9/11 disaster. His post noted how hard it was for many at the time.
He purchased his tourism business in August. The twin towers and the pentagon were hit in September.
The tourists with plenty of money to spend stopped coming. He had an instant drop in income.
There were no government handouts. In order to put food on the table he did whatever it took. Many, many small jobs, including an original version of uba. He continued looking for other ways to make his business succeed, and he did. But the tourist profile changed, so he adapted his business.
The times were desperate. His family needed to be fed and his commitments met.
Times are tough again. When we are stressed, our creative juices dry up, but we can nurture them to flow.
To be creative in ways to feed ourselves and give away just one meal. We could all do that, couldn’t we?
As much as it is possible, find things to laugh at.
In between, take a digital holiday and let your creative brain have free reign as you walk, jog, paint or watch white clouds drift across the blue sky.
Find what tickles your funny bone and comment below, laughter is the best medicine. When we open our eyes to joy, we see more opportunities.
May you find awesome blessings to brighten your day.
