Three Simple Things That Help Change the 🌍
October 3, 2017
CHANGE starts at the grassroots. It doesn't come from government. It doesn't come from the church. It doesn't come from wealth & things. Below are 3 simple ways that help will help make an immediate difference in your world.
1. Volunteer- Volunteering my gifts, time and talent have been part of my life for over 20 years. I enjoy being of service to others. Through volunteering, I learned so much about people, and situations that I otherwise would not have known to be true. Getting involved in your community is key to helping change your environment because, it keeps you aware of real time needs including your own. It redirects focus to more IMPORTANT things that are easily overlooked. I highly recommend volunteering at your local soup kitchen or homeless shelter. It will change your entire perspective about life!
2. Read- Take time to turn off the 'idiot box' and make reading part of your regular routine instead. Reading exercises and nourishes the mind- by enhancing creativity, self-esteem and overall awareness. Read to your children on a regular basis. Put down the phone-Challenge yourself to Read one book per month. Read the newspaper daily. Read the directions, food labels, fine print etc. KNOWledge empowers people of all walks! Lack of knowing keeps us stuck with outdated ideas and opinions. The truth is always changing...reading is one way that keeps us all closer to the truth.
3. DIVERSIFY- if all your friends and acquaintances are just like you, we have a problem Houston! It is important to expand your mental horizons on all levels because it eliminates preconceived & incorrect ideas. Racism, prejudice and other negative behavior comes from tradition, not truth. Diversity also strengthens the community by learning to embrace others unlike you. Chances are, you will learn something new!
A community is only as powerful and as strong as its people! REAL change starts at homebase- it begins with you! So go out and get involved! Switch up your routine and expand your consciousness about living and love.
