Be the Change

A smart man–Gandhi, I believe…or was it Mother Theresa? Am too lazy right now to look it up. Anyway–A smart PERSON once said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

If you want to see more love, then LOVE.

If you want to see more kindness, then get out there and work some RAOK magic.

If you want to see less negativity, think before you speak.

If you want to hear more good news, make more good news.

Volunteer. Peacefully protest. Sign petitions. Write a blog post or Facebook post or Tweet about an act of kindness you witnessed.

The thing I’m learning is that being negative will get you noticed but for all the wrong reasons. In 2017, let the buck stop here. And may it with you as well.

Keep your pen on the page,
Beth
