Single-celled algae that live in the ocean produce 70-80% of the world's oxygen.
I'd like to ask you to just think about that for a moment.
Think about one miniscule algae cell.
Is it important? Does it have value?
What about when it's joined with billions of others?
I love this fact about algae because it reminds me that nothing in this world is insignificant. Everything has value. Every last cell on this planet is important to the miraculous web we live in. If you are sitting around wondering if you have something of value to offer consider that you are infinitely more complex and dynamic than an algae cell.
One algae cell doesn't do much. But together? They keep life going. They are life. When you do things like join group meditations for peace you are joining together and creating something new, something that is made up of separate people but needs each person in order to happen. You don't have to join a group meditation to see your impact though. Each time you interact with someone, each time you smile at another and connect you are exercising the power that happens when individuals come together, even for a moment.
You might feel that alone, you don't do much. But you are part of the human collective. You are making an impact, whether you choose to see it or not. You are more dynamic, complex, and interesting than a single-celled algae. Never, ever let anyone (and this includes yourself) tell you that you are worthless. Every single drop counts. Every single cell of your body was created for a purpose. You were created for a purpose. Every drop is a part of something bigger.
