I believe in the power of the butterfly effect (from chaos theory, small changes can make a big difference) and that everything we do reverberates. Kind and helpful acts reverberate and so do mean and unhelpful ones. Everything we do is more than the sum of its parts. Nothing is just for this moment.
It's an interesting idea to ponder as we plan our days and weeks and make choices about who we'll be in any given moment and how we'll act.
A kind thought is more than just that thought.
A mean thought is more than just that thought.
Walking 20 minutes is more than 20 minutes of walking.
Eating that delicious donut is more than the five minutes and 500 calories.
This is heavy. This opens up new possibilities.
How about a weekly mantra.
One good act is more than one good act.
One is more than one.
