Though we may not realise it, our presence surely impacts more than the moment. With a smile here and a kind word there we give much to those who receive them, as well as to ourselves.
Actions, of course, create ripples beyond the immediate waters in which they occur. Through our efforts, an idea could be planted in the mind of a casual observer. Over the course of time who knows what might occur as a consequence of this fleeting event. Again, our presence surely impacts more than the moment.
But what about those days we’d much rather stay away from everybody, close ourselves off from the world? Even then our presence, or better our absence, will not go unnoticed. Someone may miss us. Others could be curious as to why we aren’t showing up in their timeline or stream.
Additionally, in such times of doubts and worries, our true self suffers if we choose to hide our light. However, letting go of fears can be a struggle beyond belief. Putting them down, figuratively placing them at our feet, for a few minutes helps us understand we don’t need to be forever carrying them.
Yet if our identity is so connected to certain preoccupations, we always have the option to pick them back up again in a flash. Saying that we might discover we don’t want to.
