My big bit/little bit theory.

I had to share this video because I think it is really special!  And it chimes with what I call my big bit/little bit theory.  What I mean is that if you separate your rubbish for recycling then you’re doing a little bit to help make the world a better place and it’s easy to think that that little bit doesn’t matter but if everyone in the whole world does that one little bit then it becomes a great big bit.

I think we have to remember that it’s hard for one person to do a lot but collectively we can change the world.  It’s the small acts of kindness, the little meaningful things we do that really can create change.  The cynics we say that things are getting worse and there’s nothing we can do about it.  But I think that as long as people do small things to make the world a better place not just for the environment for the people who live on this Earth then things will get better.

And when we help others and the planet, we are helping ourselves.  By improving things around us we improve as people and that can only be a good thing.  You don’t have to try to change the world on your own but collectively we can and do move mountains.

What do you think?

  1. I’m right with you about doing that little bit. Sharing what I can, recycling what I can’t. But what little bit can we do about getting better gun control? I’m at a loss when I think of semi-automatic weapons for personal protection. But routinely now, there’s a police car outside where we attend services and the newspapers are full of articles advocating guards with weapons in our schools. What kind of world needs semi-automatic weapons in daily life?

    • I am so with you about the gun control issues. The only little thing I can think of is to never carry a gun, never have one in the house, have nothing whatsoever to do with the things and hopefully teach our children to do the same!
