- having or showing the capacity to become or develop into something in the future.
The potential of twenty dollars is endless! I had that revelation when I came home from buying two greeting cards, a liter of milk, and three apples.
ONE greeting card can make someones day especially happier and they in turn could possibly:
a) Smile at someone who is having a bad day, and that will cheer up someone else(if this person lives in a different country, this potential just went global!)
b) Treat themselves to TWO cupcakes because happy+good=better; then feel guilty and run it off...
There are endless possibilities.
A liter of milk is good for maybe 25 cups of coffee or six bowls of cereal or "feeding" six cats?(I don't actually know about cats, I don't really like them.) And apples are just apples, so that's good.
BUT! You could also buy some cool shirt for twenty dollars, catch some hot babes eye, get yourself a date and I don't know what comes after that...
Or buy a whole ton of PIZZA or donuts and feel like a satisfied whale after you eat it all. Or share donuts. Twenty dollars>many donuts>donuts make friends>new friends.
Or buy five cards, send them to friends in different states, they'll pass on happiness, and dude, you made life happy in five states. This is the beginning of changing the world.
Pencil. The potential of a pencil.
Write a book, a note, a love note, a mean note, a reminder.
Stick it up your nose, or someone else's nose...
Throw it at someone,
SHARPEN IT FOREVER! Collect the shavings and make a sculpture.
Words hold potential. They make, break, build, heal, encourage, shatter...What can you say, and how will you say it? What shouldn't you say? Who will you compliment or tell a fun fact to or teach?
I'll leave you with this:
Your smile, words, twenty dollars, a small act of caring, t-shirt, pencil, have the potential to turn a life around.
What are YOU doing with what YOU have?
