OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY IS “RIPPLING”. I CHOSE THIS WORD BECAUSE IT BEST DESCRIBES WHAT HAPPENS when we make a negative decision or choice which always has a consequence. From this consequence, rippling or the “rippling effect” happens. The “rippling effect” as I call this, are unintended consequences to others not involved in the choice we made. This choice not only ripples, it bleeds over to those who we never meant to hurt. Rippling is the indirect effect of these poor choices. Let us start off with the definition of rippling from the Webster Dictionary and our Daily Wisdom Word Definition.
Webster Dictionary of Rippling-1. A small wave of series of waves on the surface of water. 2. A particular feeling or effect that spreads through someone or movement
Daily Wisdom Word Definition- 1. Waves of unintended movement with direct and indirect consequences.
Choices or consequences are the reasons we have the “rippling effect”. When we make a decision or choice we don’t think through, others get hurt. We think only of direct consequences when making a decision. Ripples are always a part of our choice. For example, you are a “manager” and must let go of an employee. The employee directly feels the consequence of our choice. His family with a wife and two children are affected from the employee’s job loss when indirectly, the money supporting them is no longer there. These consequences, direct and indirect, are a result of our choice made to lay off the employee.
When we make choices there are almost always, ripples. This is why I suggest we think through our choices carefully. Sometimes, choices we make are emotional ones such as ending a relationship. We know this is a good choice for us because the relationship is toxic. This choice also has ripples, but they are positive ones. We are finally out of this abusive relationship our loved ones and friends want us to get out of. The ripples are positive in this case. We are happier, when interacting with those we care about. Their responses and grateful feelings for us are the “ripples” with our choice.
We vote and have an election. Many of us feel the election was rigged because of the choices the President is making. These choices he makes affect all of us directly and indirectly during the last sixty days he is in office. He has made the choice to fight this loss for him in the election. He begins to make negative decisions which affect us all with ripples and consequences. In this case, these consequences are intended. Sometimes, we think through our choices, but due to bitterness and hatred, these choices have terrible consequences which can backfire and affect us harshly. The consequences of any choice are experienced with us through the “rippling effect”. Some of us don’t agree with his choices, and there will be direct consequences that will be negative for himself in the end.
All Presidents leave behind a legacy. This legacy will not be remembered by most as a positive legacy because of his choices. These choices affect all of us directly and indirectly. Some of us think the election was “rigged”. Some of us feel strongly our President is making the worst decisions he could which affect all of us. These are huge ripples which unfortunately have negative, potentially devastating consequences for all of us, (The Rippling Effect).
The consequences of our choices are long-term and we should always evaluate these choices carefully. Impulsive decisions or choices lead to a huge “rippling effect”. Let us evaluate the consequences for ourselves and others prior to making any choice.
