Day 3124: What’s a small action you can take to make a difference?

Yesterday, I took the small action of tweeting this question on Twitter.

All of the answers I received made a difference to me.

Do you see any small actions that make a difference in my other images for today?

Cooper Raiff, the 20-something, first time director of the small action but amazing movie “Shithouse” has definitely made a difference.

What’s a small action you can take to make a difference?

Expressing gratitude is a small action I take every day, so thanks to Cooper Raiff, other creative people (including my Twitter friend ARTY who drew that cool portrait of me), all who answer my questions, and everyone who makes a difference, including YOU!

  1. Great question! Unfortunately I didn’t see it on Twitter or I would have answered it on there. So I will answer it here. There are plenty of ways that you can make a difference! Share a blog post, smile at someone, or tell someone they are doing a really great job.

  2. You make a big difference by prompting people to think every day with your words and photos, Ann. I value you greatly as an influencer in my life.

  3. I’d give that pencil portrait a tick

  4. Two ears, two eyes, one mouth. Use them proportionately!

  5. Listen to someone who needs to talk.

    There are so many small gestures one can do, but first people have to put their ego aside…

  7. Every Wednesday I meet with my writing group. Early on when we first started meeting in Zoom the moderator began a tradition of asking me to end each meeting with a terrible joke. It makes me happy that I can contribute at least one positive thing to each meeting and I hope it makes others happy too. This is the one I’m planning on for tonight: Today, July 21st, is Belgian National Day. Should I celebrate it or not? I know, I’m waffling.

  8. I suppose being conscientious about recycling, trying not to model negative behavior for the younger generations, being patient and grateful. You have beautiful Echinaceas (eastern purple coneflower, purple coneflower, hedgehog coneflower, or echinacea), a North American species of flowering plant in the sunflower family. I don’t know much about these since they’re not tropical plants at all, yet they are the second largest family of flowering plants (Asteraceae) after Orchidaceae (orchids).

  9. offer a kind word to someone you haven’t met before, let someone go in line in front of you, share what you have

  10. I’m with Beth. I try to give random people compliments when I’m out and about. Amazing the smile that comes to someone’s face when you remark on their hair, earrings, attire, etc. So easy and yet the impact can be profound. ❤️

  11. What a beautiful post! Thank you. These are all great ideas!
