Make A Splash One Ripple At A Time
Just a small town gal and that is all I'll ever be, where life is just another iced sweet tea away, where you can see the twinkling stars at night, the wonders of the moon, and puffy white clouds floating across the blue sky. Welcome to my blog from the heartland, full of random musings, observations. Things I love, events in my life, humor..
Make a Splash One Ripple at A Time

"Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end." ~ Scott Adams ( American Cartoonist)
A few days ago, I was chatting with a friend about a variety of things when she made the comment, 'a pebble in a pond, a ripple,' which summed up what we were discussing at the time. I started thinking though about how profound a statement that is and what it means.
If you drop a pebble in a still pond, it creates ripples which slowly spread out over the surface of the pond in small waves until all the water has been moved a little. The ripples, waves that are created by a pebble can become larger depending on the size of the pebble. Whether the ripples are small or large, they eventually will have an effect on the entire pond. Just as in life, your actions are like pebbles dropped in a pond and will affect all those around you. They may seem insignificant but will touch all those around you.
Whether you create a splash, or just small ripples, never doubt that whatever you do can have a profound significance on others with your words and deeds. Your good actions or bad actions have a ripple effect that can carry over a great distance.
Each decision we make causes ripple effects in our lives. It is the reaction we choose that makes a difference when things happen to us. The ripple effect from those choices can create huge or small waves of discontent, joy, or sorrow, but they will expand and touch others
regardless of size.
As we go about each day, let us remember the effects of a pebble dropped into a still pond...
You can make a difference in this world, just by making a ripple and who knows you may make make such a significant splash, that your ripple will start multiple ripples by those whose lives you have touched as they begin to create their own positive ripples. We only get so many pebbles in this life to create ripples, may yours be good ones
