It’s easy to get caught up in the negativity that seems to be prevalent in the world lately.
Sometimes we may even struggle to have hope.
Hope that things will change.
Hope that we will have a better tomorrow.
Hope that we can make a difference.
As the saying goes in Ted Lasso, “It’s the hope that kills you.”
Of course, Ted, as the eternal optimist, rebels against that and instead focuses on one word:
And yet, one wonders–How can I- one person- make a difference?
Is that even possible?
That idea is of my new book, Footprints Across the Planet (Reycraft Books)
You are already making an impact on the planet, each time you take a step.
Like you, every being on the planet leaves an imprint
with their feet
Whether human or animal, voices or activity, each mark has a purpose.
To remind us of our history, give us a glimpse of our future, and maybe even inspire us to change the world.
So how can YOU do this? How can we help kids to do this?
When we try to tackle a big problem, that is the best way to start.
While no one can solve all of the problems, try taking just one step.
When taken in the right direction, it makes a world of difference.
And understand that just like every living being on this planet, you ARE making an impact with every step you take.
So the next time you see a child– or an adult– overwhelmed with life, encourage them to just take one step.
THAT will be their impact on the world and it will be amazing!

*** Update– Congrats to Eric Fischer for winning a copy of my new book!***
I wear sneakers 90% of the time.
It’s seasonal! Nothing beats a pair of leather hikers for Fall.
I wear Vionic or Birkenstock for the great arch support. I wore soft, cushy deerskin moccasins during COVID shut down and it was a bad decision!
I wear flip flops.
For everyday I wear Puma Suedes. For running I wear a pair of Brooks Ghosts.
For running, I wear New Balance. For Jazzercise, I wear Ryka. For everyday errands, I wear Converse.
