What Would You Do if You Had the Power to Make a Difference in the World?
There are so many inspiring people doing great things to make a difference in this world, but it is about time we all realized each and every one of us has the power to do the same. We may not be on TV, or known to the rest of the world, but we choose how we interact and react to every situation in our lives, and that ultimately affects everything and everyone around us.
You may think that you are just one person and what you do or say does not make a difference, but it does.
Mother Teresa once said:
“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love”
How true is that? Just the smallest act of kindness can make such a difference to someone’s day and then that kindness will be passed on to the next person. Kindness spreads like a virus, just watch this video to understand what I mean:
We have all been hurt, we have all suffered pain, but we also have the power to stop the cycle by choosing kindness instead.
Some want to hurt others, because they have been hurt, but this keeps the cycle going on and on forever. We need to learn from our experiences and accept that whatever has happened to us is for our own growth and choose to do something good with it.
There is no point sitting around miserable, dwelling on the past and what you have been through, when you can decide to take that situation and do something better with it.
We have to be a positive change for the future generation. We can’t wait for other things and other people to act before we do, we have to change within ourselves and choose to be better and do better now.
Our past experiences have made us who we are today.
Dont live your life resenting others, bitter and negative. Make a conscious decision to forgive, not for them, for you. Knowing that staying in the pain means you lose. Moving on means you win.
Our children and future generations will benefit from a choice you can make today.
Never forget that every negative experience in your life, not just the positive, made you who you are today. Often it is the most challenging events that give us our greatest character. It is our struggles that built the strength we have today.
When you know better, you do better – Maya Angelou
If we know better we can do better and we can always choose to do better, in every situation and with every interaction.
The people that have hurt you or done wrong by you have only acted out of fear or resentment from their own past experiences and pain, so let’s not continue the cycle. We can go on being bitter and projecting on to others the hurt that has been put on us or we can choose kindness and forgiveness.
And by making this small and conscious decision to be a better person, more loving, caring and forgiving, we really do have the power to change the world.
