Be the change you wish to see in the world.
Those late summer nights, as I've mentioned before, they get me every time. Late one night this week, my friend and I sat around our kitchen table, wine in hand, pondering six questions. Six questions that could make all the difference in life, love and true happiness.
Who do I love and what am I doing about it?
Am I pursuing my dream or is fear holding me back?
Am I doing something that matters?
What am I doing to help others?
Am I as good a person as I want to be?
What am I doing to live life with passion, health, and energy?
Some responses stopped us dead in our tracks, others left us inspired into action and change. I won't get into the details of my own answers, but am offering you the opportunity to ponder them with me. What if we all asked ourselves these questions? What if we all lived from a place of love and passion? Health and energy? Dreams fulfilled and help given?
And how does one change the world to create this? How does one create a movement of passion, health, and love? I've realized in my short time on the earth, that maybe the only sure fire way to change the world is to step into what we want to see happen--literally being the change we hope to see.
Ain't nothin to it but to do it, right?
So, to start a movement of dreams coming true and fear pushed aside, we have to first step out boldly and courageously towards our own dreams and visions.
To live in a world of passion and purpose, we must first live every day with passion and a sense of bigger purpose.
To see people living life filled with health and energy, we must embody health and energy ourselves.
To create a world of good people helping each other, it begins with helping ourselves and helping the people we encounter daily.
To surround ourselves with love and joy, we have to do something about the people we love. Tell them. Show them. Share it.
To fill this world with good people, it takes stepping into our own integrity and not sacrificing it for anything.
I guess it comes down to getting really responsible about what you wish to see. I love wishing, and day dreaming, and wondering...but I've found that owning up to my daydreams about my life and this world-- and working to make them real-- is way more fun. Action towards what you want is more of a thrill than creating a wish list.
So these six questions are my gift to you this week--- Ponder away my friends! Get clear about what makes you come alive, what you want to see different about this world, and then get out there and get to it.
I am excited to see the world with you in action.
All my love,
