A friend and I did a drive to collect costumes for the kids at the domestic violence shelter. We were camped out in front of Walmart and we'd ask people to grab a costume while they were inside and this was pretty effective. About halfway through our day, a van stopped in front of our table and a woman got out. She said she used to own a costume shop and slid open the van door. I'll never...

I volunteer/work for my local aquarium. Today I volunteered to help with our sick animals. My job today was to get a sad baby leopard shark to be happy again as he was having tummy problems (basically I massaged a shark all day). Because I was so wrapped up in this I left my Wallet an hour away at the aquarium. When I finally realized this after getting home, I hopped in my car and saw...

Today, I needed to pay cash for some medication I absolutely cannot go without. (Prior authorization fun for a medication I've been on for 5 years. Insurance sees it as new...) I realized this morning I was $40 short and had no idea how I was gonna make it work. I went into work early to ask my boss to borrow the money until payday. (He has done this before for me). The owner of the store was there when I...

Some friends and I went hiking to a waterfall swimming hole today. We get out there and endure the initially very cold waters and climbing boulders to jump off of. We're having a great time and about an hour in I realize my watch has come off. I'm like oh shiiiiiiite! I start scanning the river bottom through the intermittent rays of good sunlight but after an another hour I'm starting...

As a stay-at-home mom of three boys, I often have a hard time feeling like I am capable of having a meaningful impact outside of my family. So today I finally did something I knew I COULD do. I have taken my kids out for walks in the stroller many times, and the trash on the sidewalk and streets always catches my attention. This afternoon I did something about it. I tied a...

"For what it's worth... it's never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet...

This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those 'Adopt a Soldier' programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a...

By Furqan on September 26, 2018 / 1,522 views

Here's the story of my growth over the past year. If anyone is inspired by this, that's wonderful. I'd been stuck as this incredibly insecure, under-confident, fat sack and just scared individual for years and years and years. Since childhood I'd been stuck like this, and I'd just resigned to a life where I'd be afraid of everything and be this 'introvert' or...

There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn to not judge things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away. The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer, and the youngest son in the fall. When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe...

During a conversation between an old lady and I today morning, I saw a moving car followed by many young gentlemen by foot selling insecticides. Dust on their feet, sweats, and short runs showed me how tired and far they have walked. In spite of all this, they kept doing the marketing without showing any sign of regret or giving up. Their unchanged faces and some with smiles even when people refuse to respond...
