Each One – Help One

What if you helped just one person today? Just one.

What could the trickle down effect of that look like? What if the person that you helped turned around and helped one and then that one helped one more? You have now played a part in touching three people by taking the time to care for and help just one person.

Your impact could become endless and you may never know the lasting impact of one little helpful moment in your lifetime.

We can get caught up trying to change the world around us with dramatic and big impactful moments when all it may really take is taking the time to help one person. The dramatic and impactful moment may not be yours to have but it may happen down the line somewhere all because you took the time to help just one person.

So what if you helped just one person today? Just one. You may never know the overall impact of that interaction but that’s OK. Help the one. Be in that moment. The moment in front of you. It is the moment that is the most important.
