Have you ever thought of how your every day choices affects the lives of others?
Recently our world has become increasingly tense as tragic events happen more frequently and "closer to home". This negative tension is carried around in our minds, creating a compounding effect each time the news, or our personal conversations replay the scenes of what people can do to one another.
As we react to the world around us , we are often unaware of how our choices affect the lives of those we touch; be they family members or strangers, the ripple effect from a small pebble thrown into a pond comes to mind.
The driver of this van made choices before he crashed into the entrance at a local restaurant, which has been shut down for the past 8 months while the owners struggle with insurance, red tape, remodeling, or even reopening. Clearly his choices affected the lives of those inside the establishment, as well as his passengers, and future patrons.
Simply stated from the online dictionary:
Cause and effect is a relationship between events or things, where one is the result of the other or others. This is a combination of action and reaction
What are the clear choices you can plan on and make today, that will positively impact the lives of others?
