“We never know which lives we influence, or when, or why.”
This is a very powerful message, and one I think few people realize. We encounter people throughout our day. Some are people we will see again and often, some maybe a for a few moments in a checkout, some for no more then the moment it takes to pass them on the sidewalk. These encounters do not always have to be face to face. Especially with the ease of the internet and technology, people are being exposed to an even larger community. For every person you encounter you have the potential of influencing their lives for better or worse. The influence can me minor, or it can be life changing. Who we influence, when and why we can not determine. But in our daily actions we can decide what kind of influence we would like to share with others.
