What I’ve realized is that everything that exists collectively is rooted in personal choice. It all comes back to people and the decisions we make. While climate change, poverty, and the prison system all seem too daunting to ever be able to make a difference, I disagree. Those systems were manufactured by humans and therefore can be corrected by humans. It’s not going to be easy, of course not, but it needs to start somewhere right? You’re a human aren’t you?
I’m fascinated by what it means to “make a difference”, and specifically how helpless we sometimes feel when we want to make a difference. But I am telling you the work you do to support an important cause creates a magnitude of change far beyond what you believe, because you are leading the way! You are setting the example, and in order to create a change in the world you need to lead by example and embody that solution. That’s why before you can do, you must be.
