I get tired of complainers. I get really tired of people pointing out problems without offering possible solutions. I get annoyed with people decrying the state of the world and exclaiming someone should do something to solve societal ills yet themselves offer no help. It’s true we can’t help everyone, the size of the world’s problems can seem so large as to be overwhelming leaving us believe our efforts are merely a drop in the ocean and have no significance. But the large scale doesn’t mean we can’t make a difference so be the drop in the ocean and watch the ripples radiate in all directions. It was Mother Teresa that said, “we can do no great things only small things with great love.” She was someone that made a difference. She was someone that did many small things with unrivaled love. Mother Teresa, a woman of small stature became enormous in the eyes of the world because, rather than merely point out that there were poor people suffering, took steps to ease their plight, to bring dignity to the marginalized. Mother Teresa did those many small acts of love with great joy bringing joy and comfort to the downtrodden. Mother Teresa loved the impoverished all the way to a Nobel Peace prize. It’s easy to point out problems in society. It’s a challenge to offer a solution to a societal problem. It is a great challenge to be the solution to a problem, yet, when you come right down to it, you can only control yourself so being the solution, becoming the change you wish to see in the world is the only way to change the world.
