IT IS THE LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE

There was a man taking a morning wa lk at or the beach. He saw that along with the morning tide came hundreds of starfish and when the tide receded, they were left behind and with the morning sun rays, they would die. The tide was fresh and the starfish were alive. The man took a few steps, picked one and threw it into the water. He did that repeatedly. Right behind him there was another person who couldn't understand what this man was doing. He caught up with him and asked, "What are you doing? There are hundreds of starfish. How many can you help? What difference does it make?" This man did not reply, took two more steps, picked up another one, threw it into the water, and said, "It makes a difference to this one."


What difference are we making? Big or small, it does not matter. If everyone made a small difference, we'd end up with a big difference, wouldn't we?

I found the story of this srilankan cricketer, Marvan Attappattu more inspiring and motivating. He is a true example for being persistent

In this world, we try to imitate what others are doing. But in case of helping, most of us withdraw or look steadily without giving our effort when we saw someone helping others. This attitude has to be changed. This story is a great motivation for that. Thanks......

Everyone looks up and smiles at the full moon, they know that darkness has been beaten.
The children happily play in the front yards, the birds joyfully sings to the full moon, they are going to sleep late tonight. The newlyweds are in the honeymoon.
A Poet takes his occasional walks by the beach as he receives the evening inspiration. A Pastor meditates along the hem of the beautiful garden… everything is still alive thou the sun seems to have set; “shame on you darkness.”
