It begins with you, It begins with me…

“If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society will benefit from our peace.” Thich Nhat Hanh

To me, this quote is along the same lines as Ghandi’s famous quote “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” I have heard the quote time and time again but it is just finally beginning to sink in. We always hear that you can’t change somebody else but people aren’t as quick to mention the fact that we have an incredible power to change ourselves. The positive changes we make in ourselves inevitably effect those who surround us. Take the time to truly figure out who you want to be. If you could be described in just one word, what would it be? If you were remembered for one thing, what would it be? 

I am in no way telling you to be selfish BUT if we each focused more on ourselves and less on external distractions we would be much better off. The whole world would be much better off.  Think about what an amazing world we would live in if we each lived up to our full potential!

Well, what are you waiting for?
