One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed
a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, What are you doing?
The youth replied, Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them back, they'll die.
Son,the man said, don't you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can't make a difference!
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish,
and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said
I made a difference for that one.
Stop for a moment and just breathe. You do make a difference! This world is different because you are in it. All too often we don't listen beyond the harsh judgments and high expectations we have of ourselves. We allow the beliefs of our value and worth to be tainted with limited, outdated and inaccurate information.

How many times do you go through the day thinking:
- I don't make a difference,
- I don't matter,
- What I want doesn't matter,
- There isn't anything I can do to change a situation?
What possibilities would be available to you if you were able to really hear the difference you make in the lives of others?
Practice with me.
- Write down the many roles you have played in your life. (ex. friend, daugher, son, partner, etc.) Acknowledge yourself for the many lives you have touched.
- Bring to mind the specific people in your life that you have served.
- Now turn your attention to you and without judgment, breathe in each one of their faces. Imagine them smiling back at you, telling you all the things they are grateful for, all the times you supported, loved and lifted them beyond their pain, struggles and life situations.
- Your only job is to let it in. Breathe in their gratitude, love and appreciation even if they haven't told you the difference you make in their lives.
