This week I was blessed to meet people that came together to do something for the community. Everything’s still in its initial stages; one’s under wraps, one’s not-so, but it’s an absolutely great feeling to know that in a small place like Singapore, there’s still hope for humanity.
“We’re like that – we just come together and do things. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t then it’s okay.”
I loved the spirit that was running through the discussions. I know so many cynics that have so many things to say about how humans are intrinsically selfish, and that many good acts are done on a selfish basis. Well, I’d like to believe that at the end of the day, we’re all just working to better the lives of a group of people, or of some people; or just one person.
And, at the end of the day, the least we could say is that we tried. We took some time off paper-chasing, and we tried.
I guess that’s probably the one thing that hinders most charity efforts – taking that leap of faith, crossing the hurdle, walking out of your comfort zone and daring to try.
Today, I dare you to try to make a difference.
don’t let life rob you of compassion.
start small, aim big. 🙂
