We Can Be The Change

I reflect on what has been going on in the world recently.

There have been a lot of very negative things going on in the world recently … but I’ve realized what the best step for all of us to take is. There is something we can all be doing to make this world a better place, even if that difference is significantly small. By taking on one small random act of kindness at a time, we can do so much in the ways of being the change we wish to see in the world. ❤ Please keep reading to learn more.


When times of terror greatly affect us and cause us to fear for our protection, anxiety begins to take root within us. It’s the natural reaction; it is frightening to know what people are capable of, and how we might one day be personally affected by this hatred and evil. The thought of our own safety, as well as those that we love, being put at risk is really a frightening thought.

But what I’ve realized while reading the news lately, and by seeing how everyone is reacting to all of what has been going on this past week, it has really affected me emotionally. I’ve seen how everyone is coming together, reaching out to one another, and spreading positivity and love. We’re grasping hands and making stronger bonds instead of using our power to hurt others. This has caused many of us to remember what we really should be doing: caring for one another.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

Whenever there is something bad going on that we cannot control, whether we’re personally witnessing it or we read articles online, we are often struck by the realization that we must do something – but then it is heartbreaking when we realize that we can’t.

However, I have just recently realized that we are capable of doing more than we ever thought possible.

“Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” — Howard Zinn

No, we can’t bring comfort to everyone in pain, nor can we assist every person in need … but we can give a smile to every individual we meet, reach out to others who need our love, exhibit kindness to our friends and family, read that new blogger’s blog posts … by doing things that are so small, we can change the lives of everyone around us!

Spread kindness like wildfire. Be conscious of others’ feelings. Go out of your way to love people. Aim to make everyone that you meet happier than when they first met you. Be a light in the darkness! ❤

Do for one what you wish you could do for millions.

We cannot let the terror that is going on affect or weaken us. We are strong, bright, intelligent people. The negativity around us is definitely heartbreaking sometimes, but by doing what we’re capable of doing – which is sooo much! – we can – and will – change the world.

Changing the world always needs volunteers.


If you would like, it would bless me if you would reblog this post, for the sake of getting this message out. We need to spread the positivity, pray for and take care of each other, and strengthen the bonds that we have with all of our friends and every member of our families. Love always wins over hate ❤

I hope that this post has inspired you. How about you?

What can YOU do to change the world?

I was planning to reblog this while reading, way before you mentioned it in the post. These are the things that need to be read by everyone and everyone needs to take responsibility and take part in doing better and making a better change. This is a beautiful powerful message✨✨

I don’t read news or listen to it any more. There was never anything good in it and found it to cause such a cloud in my life. I know this world is a mess so I just pray for all of God’s children everyday to be the children He wants us to be. I’ll reblog it LOL but you know it will have to be the way I reblog stuff but it would be a pleasure. God Bless you Maggie, this is a great post that should be read.

In all honesty, neither do it; I avoid it like the plague! All it does is stress me out. The only reason I heard about all this junk was because I recently got back on Twitter 🙈 Now I know not to visit the Twitter News tab anymore! I’m glad you liked the post. I’ll appreciate the reblog, no matter how you do it 😉 😀

Well, I know something must have happened recently because everyone I know or see says did you see the news. I immediately say no and change the subject. LOL Well I can use the reblog button, I figured that out and it is easier BUT since my page background is black, nothing comes out legible LOL so I had to go back to the old way I did it BEFORE I mastered the reblog button LOL No appreciation needed Miss Maggie, I wouldn’t reblog something unless I felt it was something people needed to read. So, it was my pleasure to do it.

Mr. Rogers: “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers–so many caring people in this world.”
