Recently I was asked by someone who stumbled on this blog to answer some questions about Buddhism. They were writing a term paper and thought I would be of value to them in writing the paper. I am still waaaay new to Buddhism, but after receiving the questions I felt comfortable enough to respond.
Anyway, I received word the other day that the person received an A+ on the paper which helped them get an overall grade of A for the entire class. I was very excited to hear the news. Although I was unsure just how much the answers would help, I still took the time to at least try and do what I could.
It just goes to show, however little the task may be, we can all make an impact. Whether it’s holding a door open for someone, smiling at a stranger in the grocery store, making an effort to stop when you see someone trying to cross traffic, etc. It all helps!
