Doing Something.

“I am only one,
But still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”

~ Edward Everett Hale

  1. So what are you choosing to do? How are you making that choice?

    I try to be kind.
    I know that’s not much in a world that needs so much. like clean water and food!
    but I hope that kindness is contagious.
    and if it helps just one person a day… and they in turn helped one person…

  4. From small steps, you can walk a mile. From small accomplishments come big achievements. From one idea, many dreams come true. Well, that’s my attempt to interpret this poem!

    Great quote, and great photo. The photo makes one realize how many ways this can be interpreted. It reminds me of the song HELPING by Shel Silverstein.

    • Thank you. I think that you will enjoy reading my latest post Doing Something II which has just gone live.

      I hadn’t heard HELPING and found it hilarious. Let me just quote him to conclude this response.
      “And some kind of help is the kind of help
      That helping’s all about
      And some kind of help is the kind of help
      We all can do without.”

    Good thoughts in that little poem. We all can make positive contributions simply by responding to the opportunities to do good works that come our way.

    Well, then. I hope that I am doing the something that is something that I can do in spite of all of the somethings I can’t do or don’t choose to do. Choices every day.

  8. I have retired from a number of things that I had choice to do many years ago but now I really couldn’t continue as I had lost my mojo for them. I may find another ‘something’ to do but not rushing out to find it…
