Thoughtful Thursday: Be The Change

Be the change you wish to see in the world

My life is about meeting and surpassing my own expectations. It is about embracing the change that results from the choices I make daily to do better than I did the day before. I am not competing with anyone, but myself. Each day that I awaken is not the same and brings along a multitude of opportunities for change within myself. There are many that choose to not consider change as a blessing in their lives. It is when I encounter those that are change-resistant that I end up telling myself this:

“What others say, think or feel doesn’t matter. YOU have the potential to create so go for it. By doing this, YOU will be the change that you eagerly wish to see in this world. ”

To inspire change in the lives of others, I must will to inspire change within my own.

As I reflect on this, my purpose here on earth is reaffirmed. I want to leave this world better than when I found it, leading quietly by example.

      Thank you for perusing my blog and for your kind words. I’ve learned in life that honesty is the best policy in any action you take or any choice you make…and I feel that my writing should be no different. I’m so pleased to know that the honesty in my work was recognized.

      Many thanks,

    Thank you, Farah! I know that I am too stressed out when I resist change. I go with the flow when everything is going along peacefully.

    This post encourages us to step out of our comfort zones and “swim up stream”, against what the world is telling us. Making a difference in the world means doing the hard thing. Thank you for this encouraging post.

      Yes, that’s right. We could not set an example or “be the change” if we didn’t do the difficult things that required us to step out of our comfort zones. I appreciate you continuing to read my blog and am grateful for your comments.

      Blessings to you,
