“Be the change that you want to see.” I’m not sure where I picked this quote up, but it has continually been on my mind. It seems that so many of us are good at pointing out the shortcomings in our world. However, we do very little to fill in the gaps that we see.
Do you want there to be more love and understanding in your family? Then you should be more loving and understanding. Do you think there needs to be a greater emphasis on helping the poor? Then you help the poor. Do you want peace in our world? Then be a person at peace with yourself and with others.
Don’t just hope for change; be the change.
