This is not my quote, it's from Conan O'Brian. But it spoke to me so much that I made yesterday's vlog about it and without knowing it this sentiment has become a huge part of the way I try to live my life.
There is always someone somewhere that can use your help. That might be something as simple as a smile to pick them up in the middle of the day, a hug to let them know another human being cares or something more specific like a melody or a song in my case as a musician.
No matter how big or how small the help you offer, know that the impact is more than likely going to have ten times the effect you think it will.
Help is hard to ask for. For me it was impossible for more than 20 years. Now I've been able to reach out and ask I am now aware of a huge light shining on so many people in need. It only takes one small gesture to change someone's day. To change their life. And to change yours for the better in the process.
