Use Your Talent to Contribute …

Quotes and Notes #296, August 27

Help the landscape

Help the landscape

“Using your talent, hobby, or profession in a way that makes you contribute something good to this world is truly the way to go.”—Simon Zingerman, “We All Need Heroes: Stories of the Brave and Foolish.”—

Four tires and some trash were piled up around a “no-dump sign in front of some rather pretty woods. I pass this site often on the way to perform my services for one of my wonderful clients. Every time I drove by the mess I found myself perturbed that someone would violate such a pretty place.

One day my client let me know that she, too, was perturbed with the situation. That afternoon, I loaded up four tires and some other garbage onto the back of my truck and took it to the county landfill. I paid the $21.00 fee and got rid of the mess for good.

Now when I drive by the site, instead of being angered and perturbed, I look at it and smile. Cleaning it up was a little thing. The change in my outlook is a big thing. I learned something.

Share a smile with the landscape.
Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
