To Ripple Or Not To Ripple?

What kind of question is that?

Of course you should Ripple!  In fact each day brings new and exciting opportunities to do just that...provided you consciously looking for them.

But are you preparing yourself?

As you got yourself ready this morning did you think about Rippling? 

Did you wonder who might I meet this fine day and what Ripples might come from that encounter?

Did you think about who you could create Ripples for?  What friends, colleagues or family could really use that positive action, word of encouragement or simple gesture of kindness?

Did you allow that little rumble of excitement in the pit of your belly to grow as you thought of making an impact on someone in your own special way?

Did you?

With the dawning of each new day new opportunities to Ripple are there just waiting for you to make them.  It's as if you hold all the colors in the world and the blank canvas stands before you just asking you --- heck begging you to paint your masterpiece.  A masterpiece filled with all the faces you've impacted today.  A masterpiece filled with smiles, hugs and those looks of amazement.  A masterpiece filled with appreciations so heavy and strong.  A masterpiece filled with quaint little scenes of the happiness.  And a masterpiece filled with all of those "I can't believe you'd do that for me" moments.

With each new day a new canvas and before you know it you have a wall of full of Ripple moments that you and only could  have created.  A collage of cherished moments, brilliant joy and human kindness all created thanks to you.

To Ripple or not to Ripple? that is the question.

To which only you can answer.  Why not start tomorrow morning!

Ripple On!!!
