You can make a difference in your world. You are capable of influencing, assisiting, changing and improving your surroundings and those around you. The world can be a better place for all of us. You can do great things. But none of this happens when you are too busy, too tired, too insignificant, too depressed or whatever excuse you chose to use. You can make it your problem (miyp) by taking action, small and large.
The practice of miyp isn’t ad hoc it is cultural and ubiquitous. Your first reaction should be to act. When you see an injustice, a tragedy, a concern, someone needing assistance, a situation that is causing problems – make it your problem and do what you can. We are all more capable than we give ourselves credit for. Putting into place a new miyp mantra and beginning to act will change your life and make the world a better place.
Begin where you are; call a friend who needs encouragement, shovel a walk, write a letter, talk to a stranger or a politician or both. Make a lunch, sing a song, read a book and share it with someone. Recycle, pick up trash, make a donation, join a cause. Volunteer with a group or just take action yourself.
If something has been bothering you, if you have had an inkling that something isn’t right, if you were worried you couldn’t help – just do what you can today, tomorrow and until there isn’t anything that needs your assistance.
