Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu

You may find it exhausting to see and hear about all the terrible things that make up the news. To give yourself a break from the brain-draining news stories, I thought I’d share a tip that helps me in the hopes it helps you, as well.

I find inspiration in quotes from people wiser than I am. They refocus my efforts on contributing to the greater good. The words of wisdom from Archbishop Tutu remind me that what I do matters because it’s part of a larger effort to make the world a better place.

If you’re doing good in the world, keep it up! We could use all the bits you’re contributing to overwhelm the things that pull in the opposite direction.
