Small Steps Up Mountains#8

“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”

                                                                                                    St Teresa of Calcutta

Mother Teresa of Calcutta was canonised yesterday in Rome.  She dedicated her life to the poor and highlighted how one person can create LOTS of small ripples that promote a HUGE change.

We may not create such a change in the world but we can ALL make a difference.

I was very moved by two bloggers this week, who are helping others by sharing their healing journeys.

Ali Wilford has chronicled her journey with malignant melanoma in her Diary of a Mole Part 1  , Diary of a Mole Part 2 , Diary of a Mole Part 3 , Diary of a Mole Part 4 , A Good Restart

Wishing you all the best Ali.

Clive shares his journey on healing from debilitating depression in  My Story Part One , My Story Part Two , My Story Part Three , 365 Days Later , This Is Me

Both blogs are incredibly inspirational.

If you have a post(s) that you would like included in “Small Steps Up Mountains,” I would love to hear from you.

  1. I found this post to be quite inspirational! Because it’s absolutely true. It may not feel like that we’re making a difference by blogging of our experience with mental illness on here, but if everyone had that mindset the stigma would be a lot worse than it currently is in my opinion.

  2. Brigid, you are the second blogger I read today with the quote about ripples. I had never heard that one, but my favorite saying of Mother Teresa’s is somewhat similar and has always inspired me. It is “I cannot do great things, but I can do small things with great love.” Thanks for your post and sharing other ‘s stories as well. Jo

  3. Thank you, Brigid. It has has always both inspired me and made it feel possible to tackle issues. No matter who we are or what we are responding to, we can bring a loving presence to it. I hope it touches some else through your blog. Jo
