Don't Dream It, Be It! #BeTheChange

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. " Mark Twain

We all have an amazing power within us, the power to bring about change. This change could be something within our own lives or something that affects our lives. 

How often do we hear it stated that one person can't change anything? This basically defeatist attitude is often implanted within us by society itself.  Nearly all the great changes brought about have been started by someone saying "this has to change". One persons desire to see and make a difference can become a deafening crescendo. One voice becoming a duet, a quartet, a choir. 

Change can be more personal too. Changing our own lives can be done quietly, steadfastly and successfully. The underlying requirement in any change is having the commitment to seeing it through.  

Our time on this planet is not a rehearsal. We cannot change the past but we can change our future. The past cannot be undone but we can stop it affecting our lives now. Changing how we deal with past events is more than possible. Firstly we have to want change.

The road does not have to be walked alone. Whatever your circumstances, you can get help in bringing about the change you want. Therapy, self help or support groups are invaluable. The online world has many options too. In this era of social media there is a never seen before opportunity to reach out and get help or to reach out to help someone else.

The ability to change is within all of us, as is the ability to raise our voices together and bring about change elsewhere. 

"Be the change you wish to see in the world” (Gandhi). Together we can “Be The Change”!!
