The lives we touch

An adult finger and a child's finger touching

“The life I touch for good or ill will touch another life, and in turn another, until who knows where the trembling stops or in what far place my touch will be felt.” ~Frederick Buechner

We are so interconnected that each interaction we have with another spreads far beyond that original touch. The smallest, most fleeting interaction may have impacts much larger than we will ever see.

It’s up to us to decide whether to make those touches on other’s lives ones that will have far-reaching positive influences or whether we will spread our anger, unhappiness, or discontent.

Which kind of impact do you want to have on the world? Choose that for all your interactions today. You have no idea how widely that may spread.
