How often do we take pause to recognize how we contribute to the world? Many of us wonder how to contribute to society, and yet we don’t often take the time to look at what we are already offering. When we take the time to recognize all the different ways we support ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities, we reaffirm those helpful behaviors. In addition, we become more aware of where our thoughts and actions are less than supportive, a finding that empowers us to contribute in more meaningful ways.
Noticing What We Have to Offer
Appreciating our contributions begins with recognizing all the different gifts we have to offer. Many people consider ‘contributions’ to be the large offerings; however, even the small offerings we make send powerful, healing ripples into the world. We can start by recognizing these small contributions, some of which might include:
This is a wonderful mindfulness exercise for groups as, when explored together, it can help us to become more aware of the unique gifts and talents of each individual. Reflected upon and written individually, the reflections can then be shared with others in the team or group we are a part of.
How to Contribute to Society
The truth of it is this: there is no single way to contribute to society. Everything we do that arises from love, compassion, understanding, patience, and/or happiness will have a positive effect on the society we are a part of. If you are wondering how to contribute to society in a more meaningful way, consider what brings you and your loved one’s true peace, joy, and contentment. And remember not to overlook the small actions that help to build a better world!
