“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
Love this. This is a nice variation of Keith’s other favorite quotation- “Be the change you wish to see in the world”- Ghandi
Although I posted about the big day yesterday, I was careful not to share my thoughts. So I shall share them here.
I am happy, hopeful and believe that great things can happen. Not just because of the man, but because we as a country are ready for it. It’s time. We have been in pain for too long. The healing needs to begin. And it begins when we look at one another through the eyes of love.
January 20, 2009 was a day where people saw a nation come back together. How many people actually watched any of the inaugaration without tears? Those tears were of Hope. They were of Joy. They were the promise of good things to happen. President Obama is leading us, but those changes can not happen unless we all make the change in ourselves.
That internal change is both infectious and magnetic. Meaning, it spreads to others AND attracts others to you. You’ll be amazed at the quality of people in your life when you CHOOSE to make that change.
You can not change your outside perceptions without first changing your internal reality.
If you need help, ask. If you are already there, share. We need to ride this boat together or sink trying. Hop on board, there’s plenty of room for you.
