You don’t think you can make a difference? Imagine if Eleanor Roosevelt had felt that way.
She was in a situation where she noticed the room was divided between Black & White. Being very much against segregation, she wanted to show her support and sat with the black population. Officials approached and insisted she move. Because her husband was the President, she had a responsibility as his wife and the law was the law. She had to move. What she didn’t have to do was sit with the whites.
She moved her chair to the centre aisle and just sat there. The officials really couldn’t do anything because she wasn’t breaking the law but she managed to “make a statement” all the same.
Think about it. It was just a small action. A little thing. That action contributed to changing the course of history! It was the accumulation of these small actions by a number of people that created a movement.
People were practicing The Slight Edge long before Jeff ever wrote about it!
Don’t ever underestimate the power of YOU. You can and will make a difference. You just have to choose to. And wait. Patiently.
P.S. What are am I thankful for today?
I’m thankful we are a free and democratic society. I’m thankful not everyone has to like or agree with what I have to say. I’m thankful for people who have the power of their convictions!
