Making a dent. This morning, as I was sitting in my car in the drive-through line at the Dutch Bros Coffee House in Grants Pass, a random thought occurred to me... I wanted to pay for the coffee for the people in the car behind me. I told the Barista what I wanted to do and he smiled and said okay.
When I arrived home, I opened my email and there was a quote from Seth Godin saying; 'Are you making a dent in the Universe?' I chuckled. Perhaps I made a very small insignificant dent in someone's world this morning by buying them coffee, but I couldn't help but reflect on the bigger picture. How have I impacted those around me, particularly those who know me? What mark have I left on the Universe today?
We're given so many opportunities each day to make a difference in the lives of others. Are we paying attention to the hints? Are we seizing the moments? Many of you have made a dent in my world this past week, and for that I'm eternally grateful. It's a gorgeous day today, the sun is shining, and there's not a cloud in the sky. It's a perfect day for making a dent in the Universe.
