I used to believe I could change the world. I wanted to make it a better place and that dream took me to South Africa. I couldn't have imagined the amount of suffering and poverty that I was to behold.
Seeing that amount of pain made me believe there was no way I could help. I am just one person - how could I possibly have imagined that I could make a difference? Then someone told me something that is only now beginning to sink in. You may only be one person but imagine if every drop of water in the ocean decided it wasn't important and so disappeared - there would be no ocean. It is the same with us. One person may not be able to change the world by themselves. But if everyone decided not to bother because they didn't feel they could change anything - nothing would get done. But if everyone does a little something, big changes can happen.
So I want to remind you that you are important. Your contribution to the world is necessary. If we work together, exploiting our strengths, we can change the world (and hopefully for the better).
What are your strengths? Any stories of changes you want to share? Please feel free to use this space to comment and discuss anything and everything.
