Ahhh, look at me, it seems I’m actually going to accomplish this on time! Wow, go me.
A final thanks, again, to Krystallina from Daiyamanga for nominating me! This has been a really fun challenge, and I’ve enjoyed doing it.
And The Rules, again:
- Post one quotation a day for three days (they can be from other sources or one of your own).
- Nominate 3 other bloggers to participate per post.
- Thank the blogger who nominated you.
Ok, so this time I’m actually not going to nominate people because I am tired and I nominated people the other two times, which is good.
It matters to this one.
So, this quote has come to mean a lot to me over the past few months. I joined a community service organization on campus, and it has a lot of really great ideals and values, and I’ve made a ton of amazing friends there. One thing that really stuck out to me was this story we read about an old man tossing starfish back into the sea. When asked why he bothered, since he couldn’t possibly save them all, he replied, “It made a difference to that one.”
It seems that there are actually a lot of different versions of this Starfish story, all with the same moral, but if you’re interested in reading the version I’m familiar with, click here (it’s a really short story).
This quote, and the moral, are such important things to think about. The world is a huge place. Sometimes you wonder, what am I doing here? What’s the point? Can what I’m doing possibly have any impact at all?
And for me, because I love helping people and try to be a very kind person, this is important. Because it’s a reminder that even if what you’re doing feels insignificant or pointless, as long as you make a positive impact on one person/animal/place, it will be worth it.
