Feed, Cheer and Hug the World, One Person at a Time

“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.” (Mother Teresa)

How many of us have grand ideas of how we would like to help the world..in a BIG way…someday?  It is very honorable to wish for this. If only we could help, to that extent, today.

I have wonderful news…we CAN!!!

As Mother Teresa said, if you cannot feed 100 people, just feed one. Imagine helping just one person to enjoy a healthy meal…today. Then imagine if 99 other people did the same.  BOOM!  100 people, healthfully fed!

We are all individual spokes in a wheel. We do not have to each be an entire wheel. When all the spokes move together, the world moves forward in a positive direction.

In the same vein, if you cannot hug 100 people today to bring some comfort…hug just one person. You can, and will, make a difference.

Is there someone in your world who could use a bit of cheering and encouragement today? You can provide that. You don’t have to cheer on every member of the team…just choose one person, and trust that somewhere, someone else will be cheering on another.

See how easy it can be? We are all part of this experience called life. And we can all help out one other person who is just like us. Some days we need that hug, or word of encouragement, or meal.

And isn’t it a wonderful feeling when someone takes the time and effort to help us?

Are you willing to hug someone today? To offer a cheerful greeting and support? To offer some healthy food to someone who desperately needs it?

The opportunities are not just halfway around the world, on a desolate continent. They are right there in your home town.

Seize the day, and make a difference.

You can do it. I know you can. You know you can.

We all can.



  1. Great article. All it takes is one small act of kindness. Big ideas are great, but sometimes a “baby step” is necessary to get you where you want to go. This is what I’m doing. I have a vision for a couple of not-for-profits so I’m volunteering and learning everything I can about a particular not-for-profit business. Of course, mine will be different because I will not hire anyone who has a “lack or limited” mind set. I want leaders in my organization. I’m on a mission to surround myself with like-minded, positive people. I want my not-for-profits to thrive so others will thrive as well…
