The Ripple effect
But there’s little waves a-flowing,
and there’s ripples circling yet,
to a great big wave have grown;
You’ve disturbed a mighty river
just by dropping in a stone.
– James W. Foley~
I once knew someone who told me that my recycling efforts (I’m an avid recycler haha) were in vain and that one person couldn’t make a difference. Being the optimist I am, I greatly disagreed.
If I were the only person in the world that recycled, I would still make a difference in terms of my personal contribution. Would I solve the problem? No, but I would impact it. Even if it were ever so slightly.
I would go so far as to say that the idea of ‘one person being able to make a difference’ is a concept that is designed to work collectively. If everyone in the world thought they could make a difference on a particular problem, everyone’s combined contribution would make a significant impact and could even fix the problem.
So, if you believe in something, then take action! Your little ripple could end up disturbing a mighty river!
Side note: This was the first shoot that my boyfriend helped me out with and he did a pretty good job don’t you agree?? I feel like this is the first relatively casual look I’ve done in a long time. I absolutely love the floral design on this top – it reminds me of a giant lotus flower which is very fitting to the location.
