I tend to be like one of the elves in the story The Shoemaker and the Elves who’d secretly help the shoemaker in the middle of the night and be gone by sunrise so that the shoemaker would never know that they were the ones who helped him. All that mattered to them was making his life easier. And that’s all that matters to me too. While it certainly is nice to be recognized for the things you do and even to be thanked, I usually do my work and perform good deeds secretly, quietly, and anonymously. No fanfare, no noise. Some people might see that as “playing small,” but I see it as trying to leave a mark on the world in my own gentle, quiet way. It’s the impact that matters to me, not the attention or the accolades. Perhaps that means I’ll be easily forgotten, but honestly, I wouldn’t want it to be any other way.
