Have you ever wondered why do certain people come into our lives? I believe everything happens for a reason and we are meant to meet some people to make a difference not only in our world but the bigger community as well. One person can lift your spirits and give you hope and bring a smile.
Some people have the ability to boost a person up so effortlessly, their confidence and hope of things to come. I love people like this in my life and I also get self-satisfaction from being able to make someone else feel good momentarily. Our words and actions may not make a big difference in this world, but it can mean the world to just that one person. It can lift the spirits of that person, encourage them to take that step, give them confidence to have a go and feel proud of their efforts.
With the stress of farming at the moment, the extra workload of feeding stock and the financial pressure, the need to lift spirits is more prominent. The support of the Australian people and through the charities, we have all witnessed the uplifting this generosity has endowed. Thank you does not reflect the overall feeling and the intensity that this kindness bears upon farmers. As a farmer had been donated 10 bales of hay or a load of tank water or a bag of groceries …the emotions within are erupting. It may be considered a band-aid solution and it will not pay that farmers bills or feed their stock for long. But more importantly, it shows that others do care about farmers, care about their wellbeing and care about the future of Australian produce.
It doesn’t matter what line of work we are in or what walk of life we are from, everyone needs a helping hand at some point in their life. It might only be a smile we give a stranger at the grocery store or an acknowledgement of their existence… it can make a big difference. Everyone is going through something… life is not perfect. We just need to boost each other up, instead of tearing each other down. It is a win/win situation for all.
If we can all just help one person feel a sense of satisfaction or wellbeing, it will not only improve their life but also have a domino effect. Be the reason that someone smiles today. Make a difference!
Take care, Karen
