I would like to think I have, but I likely have not. I am only a stay at home mother. Any job I have ever held has been menial at best, though I did always work my best regardless of what job I was doing. I have done everything from waitressing, delivering pizzas, stocking shelves for big box stores, lawn work, roofing, flipped burgers, and made clothes. Not nearly anything to put me in the rank and file of Trump, but that has never really been my goal either.
Aside from 3 or 4 years, I have been pretty much a full time mom for the last 16 years. I see my family, my parents, his family, and the random person when I leave, I post here, and that's pretty much all the contact I have with the world.
So no. In the grand scheme of things, I will have no impact other than the child I (hopefully me first this time) will leave behind. I have tried the best I can with her and I think she will make a bigger *ripple* in this life than I ever could have. I sure hope so.
Me.... I am ok with my lot in life. I certainly am not leaving a negative impact, so that has to count for something.edit on 12/29/2013 by Kangaruex4Ewe because: (no reason given)

I'm a stay home mom too, and I know it's easy to feel that way, but it's a pretty direct way to influence the future. What better way to change it than raise it. (at least that's what I count to 10 and tell myself some days

In my opinion, you have done more than the people like Trump and the other fame junkies. When you love and support a child, you create something that geometrically expands, a eventually becomes vastly more important than any corporation.
Have you made a positive difference? It's the only question that counts when we are dead and gone.
