    A Single Tree In The Meadow

    Have you ever looked out at a beautiful meadow under a clear blue sky on a summer's day? You see the wind pushing through the grasses and the wildflowers waving their petals in laughter. Bees and butterflies here and there are busy with their daily tasks. I imagine myself as a...

    It Only Takes One

    It does not matter if you are sad, lonely, happy, excited, etc...it only takes one person with a single comment to turn that emotion around. No matter how bad of a morning I have had I always walk into my job with a smile and say good morning to everyone I see. Nobody else needs...

    Just One..

    It only takes one person to completely change someone's life. One person, one moment, can make the biggest difference. They have the power to turn everything around. Inspiration is a very strong thing.

    It's been said; we are the sum total of our life experiences.  At times, It may be easy to let the negatives outweigh the positives, but I'm sure all of us can point to certain people in our lives who made a positive difference, and no list of wrongs...

    It has been proven many times in the course of human history, that one man can make a difference. However, it has been proven both positively, and negativily. Dr. Martin Luther King J.R., he was just one man, but that was all it took to make a difference. Thanks to that one man...

    In Themselves Especially

    Does it really matter beyond yourself? It shouldn't, don't you agree? For some of us, the greatest difference we can make is within ourselves first, only then can we look to make a difference outside of our own little world.

    All It Takes

    It really only takes one person with an idea for change to make a difference. That one person coming up with an idea, and then doing what they can and getting the help they need to make it happen is all that is needed. Small changes or big, it all starts with one person. A lot of...

    Lighthouse

    In pitch darkness a single candle can be seen for miles.  A single, simple act of kindness can change the world for someone.  We never know how far our kindnesses reach, how far our light is seen.  Be a lighthouse.
