I am the change that I seek because change begins with me. (Smile & repeat)
That was my social media post for the day. Even though I’ve heard the quote, “Be the change you want to see in the world,” hundreds of times, this morning it dawned on me that this should be something I practice in everyday situations. In the past, whenever I heard the quote it was always in reference to community and global change. Never once did I think of applying it to situations closest to me. As we all know, we cannot change others; however, we can change the way we respond to their actions. I believe that we have the power to create the atmosphere and spaces we desire. I know this will not work in all situations but it’s worth a try. Peace is what I seek and it must begin with me.
Enjoy your weekend! ~ Shaun
