My friends, What Ripples have you made today?  How have you influenced and inspired someone? Has someone else done or said something today that resonated with you?

It’s a Wonderful Life” – the movie I watch every Christmas starring Jimmy Stewart, is a wonderful example of the “Ripple Effect” and we all have one, we can’t avoid it.

I am so fortunate to have just returned from a Toastmasters Conference, the theme being “The Ripple Effect”.  Nice to have the reminder, that none of move through life invisibly.

You likely are unaware, as we all are, the effect you have had on your family and friends, and even strangers. I know the effect my friends, and family have on me, as much as I enjoy a little holiday ~ it isn’t many days before I am in need of a recharge.

Only my family and friends can do that, I am starved after just a few days for the hug, the smiles, the interest in my journey that brings me from “low power – recharge soon” to ” ready to face the world.

I hope your day was wonderful.

This is a cute video taken at a train station in Antwerp – I love that so many people can plan and execute such a fun event. I can only imagine for they laugh and enjoy the thrill of planning, and execution for a long time.
