Since starting this blog, I’ve tried to do more of sending encouragement. My whole goal was to spread grace, joy and love. And not just doing that by my words, but by actions as well. By seeing those who are feeling defeated, I can sprinkle a little extra love their way.
Have you ever felt a tug at your heart to do or say something to somebody else? Maybe it’s the person you see at the store, maybe it’s that friend on social media that you’ve never actually met in person, maybe it’s your bff. I have been feeling these little tugs a lot lately, and I believe that they’re from God. He’s telling me that this person needs some hope, and just by sending a simple message or buying a coffee for an old friend can do that.
There have been a handful of times where I’ve felt these tugs, but I’ve fought them. I’m a huge introvert, so doing these things are WAY out of my comfort zone. I think I’ll come off as too awkward, too weird, too friendly, too pushy, too into their business. But what I’m doing is taking away an opportunity for somebody else to find some light at the end of the tunnel. I’m saying “They’re not worth me stepping out of my comfort zone.” And you know what? I’m tired of that. I’m tired of staying in this little bubble of my own world. I’m tired of not feeling like I can’t change this world. Because I can, and so can you.
You, I, we, WE, can change this world, one act of kindness at a time. One step out of our comfort zone at a time. One nice compliment to somebody, one SIMPLE text of encouragement. These easy things can shine a light on those who need it.
Don’t ignore those heartstring tugs. You never know how big of an impact it can do for that person. You never know how big of an impact it can do to this world.
