Reddit users came together to share their own stories after a question was posted. The question was "What small action did you take that you later realized had "butterfly effect" that turned into something much more important?"
Here are few of the responses:
- I turned right down a hallway is never been down before in college instead of taking my usual exit. Saw a job posting. Got the job. Met a girl at said job. 30 years together this coming July. Two grown daughters living their lives. Right instead of straight out the door did that.
- I was waiting tables at a restaurant and I picked up a shift on my day off. During that shift one of my friends who recently quit came in to get his last check, so I got talking with him and asked about his new job, then asked if they were hiring, which they were.He set me up with an interview, I got hired and trained on how to use CAD, and after being there for four years I got hired at a bigger company making more....which is where I still am today.
- This past summer I commented on an AskReddit about a small donation that I made to a charity that supports foster children and young adults who have aged out of the foster system. Redditors from around the world saw my comment and made hundred of thousands of dollars in donations to the charity, allowing kids' wishes to be fulfilled. Reddit visitors caused the charity's web site to crash, so Redditors with tech talent worked with the charity to make the site more resilient. I've never been happier to witness the goodness in people.
Such good endings!
