Face Need: Be Something

The world can feel a bit heavy sometimes with all of its pressures and demands. We might feel like we can’t do anything to possibly make a difference. How could one man, or woman, or child, possibly make a dent in the harsh atmosphere of reality?

At the risk of sounding cliché, consider the simple fact that we can’t be everything for everyone, but we can can be something for someone. It’s almost too simple and it doesn’t sound like much of a solution, but you can probably recall a time when someone spoke a word, smiled at you, or cracked a joke that lifted your spirits. Perhaps someone picked up your bill, paid for your coffee, or gave you a meal. They didn’t solve the world’s problems, but they made a difference in your world, if even for a moment.

So the challenge today is to consider being something for someone. Don’t let the noise and hustle of the world make you feel like there’s nothing that can be done. Bring your joy with you, offer to help a stranger, make a phone call, be something for someone today.

At MACC, we believe that it’s better to do something (even if it’s only a little) than nothing. “A little in abundance is a lot!”

Join us on November 7th for an evening of art, music and community. Learn about MACC and how you can BE a part of something great. For more information, visit the event page.
