Just as a snowflake begins as a tiny speck in the Earth’s atmosphere that joins with other snowflakes thus blanketing the earth; so is each tiny action we take to make the world a better place.
In spite of the economy, here in the U.S. we are blessed to live surrounded by such abundance that the thought of millions of adults and children starving and dying of malnutrition in neighboring countries is almost unthinkable. The fact is, even here in the U.S., perhaps right around the corner from your neighborhood, there are families struggling to put food on the table.
In 2009, more than 1 billion people went hungry (Global Hunger Index) and an alarming 3 million of all child deaths, including right here in the U.S., were linked to malnutrition (World Health Organization).
Unfortunately, the current economic situation has put most of the world in a relentless state of fear and scarcity. Many of us wander around constantly reminded of everything we lack, forgetful of all that we have and all that we can do to help those around us. Many people are starving emotionally as well as nutritionally.
Yet, the majority of you reading this article right now do not necessarily need to live with a scarcity, fear-based mentality. You likely have an abundance of resources at your fingertips to support you to live happy, healthy and to prosper. All that you must do is accept what is offered and then take diligent action to improve your life.
