You may think that you are completely insignificant in this world. But that is not so as you may think:
-Someone drinks coffee from the favorite cup that you gave them, remembering those nostalgic moments shared over a warm cup of tea.
-Someone heard a song on the radio that reminded them of you and there were tears falling down from their eyes of sadness or joy.
-Someone read the book that you recommended, and plunged headfirst into it and you had a great experience reading it. A quick thank you passed your lips.
-Someone smiled after a hard day’s work, because they remembered the joke that you told them today and you went home and told the same joke to your family and all had a great mighty laugh.
-Someone loves themselves a little bit more, because you gave them a compliment and you are now on the top of the world and feeling so nice and elated about yourself.
Never think that you have no influence whatsoever on other people. Your trace, your touch, your love, your kindness which you leave behind with every good deed and selflessness cannot be ever erased. It lingers like the sweet fragrances of the flowers in early springs.
Live in the present moment which is ever precious and beautiful. If you care about what other people think, you will always be their prisoner. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
