A Sip of Bold Action
Today’s little spark of inspiration comes from a milk carton. This morning as I took the chocolate Silk soymilk out of the fridge, I noted the advice on the side: “Take A Sip Forward,” a sentence that, by the way, is trademarked.
The idea is that drinking soy milk is “one small step toward living at your best.” The carton also told me to laugh, eat chocolate, and get exercise. But what struck me is the idea of progress measured in sips.
I’ve heard it said to people wanting to lose weight that “everything you put in your mouth counts.”
The reverse of that is that each small good thing that any of us do, in any area of life,counts. Small actions that are creative, generous, courageous, add up and ripple outward.
