A beautiful story reminding us of the small yet noticeable ways we can spread acts of compassion and care for our environment. 💧 🌱 ⭐️

I love this story that illustrates small acts are important, too! So often, we think of things that need to be done, but we end up doing nothing because we think what we do won’t make a difference - like ending world hunger. Volunteering at the Food Bank for a Day helps someone; world peace is moved forward by being kind to people.

Small acts of kindness
Even small acts can make all the difference to someone. To the world you are just one person, but to one person you could mean the entire world.

I really like the message this story brings, whatever you do, it makes a difference. It may not seem like a lot, but it accumulates. This is so applicable to how we as a whole function nowadays, everyone needs to see instant results, big results, etc. Nobody is happy with smaller solutions. Trust in what you do!

This story helped me remember a difference can always be made no matter how big or small

Starfish Story
Our actions, no matter how small, make a difference. Sure one person may not be able to bring about world peace, but he/she can bring peace to another person and this makes a difference, this makes the world a better place.

This story was really sweet
Our actions, no matter small, have an effect and sometimes the little things are just enough.

Sea stars!
Just a note after listening to this story once again: these creatures are no longer referred to as “starfish”...they’re “sea stars”! And further, since first hearing this story here at some point in the last year, I’ve finally found out how sea stars move, and it’s pretty freaky! https://youtu.be/Lbg-tQ6FJgQ

Little things
This story really shows that little things do matter. We may not always see it, but even the smallest of actions matter to someone.

Small gestures
I learned that even if you aren’t helping a big group of people/animals you can make a difference to one of the people in the group.

Cute short story about how one person can make a difference even if the task seems too big.

Every act of kindness or charity makes a huge difference, no matter the size or volume. It is the sincerity and intensity of the spirit in which it is given or done that matters. Small steps done with the hope that they inspire others to do the same.

The smallest gestures will always have a ripple effect. It may not change the entire beach but it will change the stretch of beach you have walked

I learned that even though when completing a task you may only be making a small impact, that impact makes you one step further than you were before.

Making a difference
I learned that I can get through each day able to accomplish. Even if my accomplishments are small, they ARE accomplishments. Tackl, tackle, tackle.

Make a difference
The smallest of seemingly pointless actions can impact those around me.

You never know
I try and leave a sprinkle of positivity and hope with every human I come in contact with. I can remember moments when all hope was lost. it took a small gesture of kindness and love to pull me out of harms way. You may never know the mark you'll leave in a person's life but sometimes that mark fills them with the hope to keep living.

Reminder
What seems like a small act can make a huge difference to another. I always try to make others smile or laugh...to bring joy to another every day. This story reminds me that even though it is a small act for me it could mean the world to another. ❤️

Beach
I’m not really a beach person, but I loved putting my feet in the sand today and smelling the salt air. It relaxes me
