It’s A Brand New Day
For Doing Something Good!
This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anyone could have.
This post from my earlier days reminds us that there is no age limit and no amount of resources or power that should or can keep us from making things better in this place we call home. But only if we become pro-active in the quest.
I am fairly certain that, in 25 years, if we look back on our contributions to the betterment of man, we will be much prouder of ourselves if we made a difference.
We should never be a “Nobody” in a world where “Everybody” has the capacity to be a “Somebody”!
Be responsible for the change you want to see!
We are all named “Everybody”, “Somebody”, “Anybody” and “Nobody”. And often we each find that we are spending our lives waiting for those alter egos of ours to step up to the plate to accomplish the work we need to do each and every day. There is just one problem we have when we look at this collective group that makes up each of us. Our “Everybody” side could have done that work but our “Somebody” side thought our “Anybody” side would do it and what happened? “Nobody” did it! And yet another miraculous thing happens to us all every day. The moment we wake up, we are given another chance. And though no one can go back and change the “oops” moments we all are guilty of committing yesterday, our “Everybody” side can start the new day and create a brand new future where our “Everybody” side does something good for everyone else around us!
Always remember that faith teaches us that if we accept and believe, every mistake and sin we make can be forgiven! And there’s something else we can accomplish each new day….we can relegate the “Somebody”, the “Anybody” and the “Nobody” sides of us to the back burner. We can never be completely rid of them but we can choose each day which part of us we want to have front and center as we move through our lives! I, for one, want it to be the “Everybody” Mandy!
