You Must BE The Change

Is it me or does it seem like everybody (or most everybody) today says they want to “change the world” but nobody  wants to “change” their self?

I’m not saying one person or one organization cannot put change into the world.  With all the inventions introduced over the years the world certainly has had its share of changes.  The world has even shifted because of tragedy.

But what about the person and/or organization that states they are going to “change the world” yet can hardly see past their own ego?  It’s clear that what they do, although undoubtedly welcomed, is not without some sort of self-satisfaction for themselves.

Charities are great.  I know they truly do help some people.  But not before the charity itself dips their hand into the pot and takes their share, which is usually way more than what they provide to actually helping anyone.  True charity works on the “nothing for something” method:  you get nothing but the joy of knowing you have helped someone and the ones you are helping get something they need.  There is no payment involved with true charity.

That is why YOU must BE the CHANGE.  Because if YOU can’t change your own wants/needs/desires first, how the hell do you think you’re going to be able to CHANGE THE WORLD’S?









I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!

Tell me what you think!
