I love this quote that came with my tea tonight. It reminds me of something I have discussed with a friend. We often talk about the ripple effect, about how one person's actions ripple out further than they'll ever know.
When you think of one acorn you don't generally think of a thousand forests. But if one acorn grows a tree, and that tree seeds a hundred other trees and those trees seed a thousand trees in time, that one acorn could sure enough seed a thousand forests.
As you go about your day today consider what impact you have. Are you planting seeds that you want to leave for your future self, or even future generations? If not, what can you do today to change the things you're cultivating? Perhaps it's even just to consider that one seed, one acorn, one person can and does change the world.
