Permanent Impact

 


I saw this, and I thought of the leaf that had fallen and lay briefly in the wet cement, but left a permanent mark.

There are people that to this in our lives, both in good ways and bad ways.

There are people who live their lives for a period, but shape the future for many.

I guess it is worth remembering that what may be a small incidental action for us, may leave a permanant impact on others.

Linking with #ItsaSnap



PS I tried to find an appropriate quote but all I could see was this rather negative one  'People will notice the change in your attitude towards them but not notice their behaviour that made you change' However, I think it is quite a sweet and positive notion, but maybe that's a reflection of the people who have left an impact in my life.

  11. Lovely photo and the thoughts it engendered, Lydia. In terms of small action having great effects, Here's what the author of "The Butterfly Effect" has to say: “You have been created in order that you might make a difference. You have within you the power to change the world.” ― Andy Andrews
