I grew up in a huge extended family of cousins, aunts, and uncles. Last week I received one of the sweetest emails from a younger cousin I haven’t seen for a very long time. I never realized that he looked up to me growing up or that I impacted his life at all. Being at the receiving end of his gratitude makes me think about proportions. How can something small that we do or say significantly affect someone else’s life, whether we’re made aware of it or not? I can’t help but think about what seeds I’m planting in my interactions today. –Guri
