Just Try

My personal strength is simple—I care. The voices of so many cynics say that one person can’t make a difference and maybe this is true on a worldwide scale, but what about in the life of just one person? I believe that our purpose in life is to discover our strengths and then use them to help others. Life would be meaningless if we kept our talents to ourselves and didn’t share them. Maybe I won’t change anything, but I know that the small act of trying is enough to create a voice that wasn’t there before— a voice that provides a new opportunity for people to listen; a voice to spread hope and compassion; a voice to counteract the cynics who said that I couldn’t do it. I may be naïve to think that I can effect change in the world, but I will never know if I don’t try.
