About a year ago, I wrote about Awareness and Action, That they are vastly different things. One is the actual act of something, the other is passive, and involves doing nothing. That’s right, nada, Zilch. Zero things are done. Bupkis. So in the dying hours of this Giving Tuesday, I want to remind people of just that. We should act and give, not just today, because we have been sold on a “gimmick”, but because we want to. Often even every day. It can be big or small. It also doesn’t have to be money, it can be time or a good deed. We have gotten too used to throwing awareness around, that nothing really happens. Lots and lots of inaction.
So why do we need a reminder?! Goodness and giving should be a no brainer, right?!
Is it that we get so wrapped up in our own drama, that we don’t see, or make time? Are we keeping score? If we are, then we shouldn’t, because life owes us nothing.
So I’m reminding you, Awareness is great, be aware, but also act.
I’m leaving this here, because I have to.
Be kind. Be good. Be present. Be generous. Give. Be well.
Organizations I love.
