What will you do today to improve the world around you?

1 year, 10 months ago

Small acts are the easiest way to improve the world around us, and a million little actions can change our entire world.

Today, I want to tip my server, thank the librarian for their diligence, tell a lady shes beautiful, recycle my recyclables, let my opponent take a move back in chess, share my goods with those I love, water my plants (cant wait), share ideas, encourage creativity in others, give my pocket change or smokes to a homeless person, listen to an ignored person, feed and play with my cat, inform and educate those around me, tell my partner i love her, and, in a more general sense, to spread love to everyone and everything around me.

How will you change the world today?

@mosesonator, that sounds very generous of you. Although I’d think it’d be more of a favor to give the homeless pocket change instead of smokes. By the way, I noticed your symbol and how you mentioned chess specifically. Do you play chess as a hobby, or are you part of an official chess group or something?

@mosesonator, Do a painting of a naked chick meditating on the planet mars. Don’t know how it helps the world, maybe some space rock band will want it for cover art?

I love this concept. Why is it so rare for us to be more like this. I’m no where near perfect myself. It’s so easy for us to slip in to a certain way of interacting with people when we could be so much better towards them with little to no extra effort from ourselves. I’m glad you mentioned this, it’s reminded me to try and make that effort

@theskafish, I play chess as a hobby and passion, and im only a member of a modest local club. I also chose this symbol because of the global chess game between the world’s superpowers (in which we, the people, are the pawns).

@ballsackturtles23, I like that idea. i’ll work on it over the next little while and get back to you. My friend’s band is working on a CD, so I might get it on their next album cover…. maybe. Its a longshot.

@jwskier, I think acknowledging our imperfections is the first step toward selflessness. It sounds like you care about others, and I agree with you that people tend not to realize how easy it is to spread and share kindness with others. It’s up to people like us to lead by example.

@bono95zg, I don’t know. I guess because I’d rather do something than nothing?

@ARCANUS, I saw this a few weeks ago. There’s another one like it where a man spent half his life carving through a mountain in order to make a road to a neighbouring village and hospital. I can’t help but admire people like this.

@mosesonator, @ARCANUS, doing something creates illusion of making something. thinking makes things good or bad. so whatever you do you will mostly change … you!

its the way we see the world!!!!!!!
