Are you making resolutions, yet? Maybe I am getting ahead of myself... And I am.
It's a couple of days before the calendar for the year 2017, as we know it, comes to an end.
It has been a difficult year, to say the least. The world is changing at a very rapid pace and we as humans are showing signs of the worst behavior with no end in sight.
Politics, religion, environment and many other things seem to dominate our everyday thoughts. And they are the worst thoughts... :-(
With the advent of a new year, we always harbor hopes that the next 365 days are going to be better.
Here is to you, 2018!!
Change Starts with Us...
It starts with us...
We need to be better. The change is within us. We want the world to change on its own. We forget that we are the change that we want the world to be.
In the words of John Mayer:
It's not that we don't care We just know that the fight ain't fair So we keep on waiting (waiting) Waiting on the world to change...
My new year's resolution is that I am going to try to be a better human being. I am going to do my best to make the world a better place.
No diets, no false promises but a commitment to try to fix the world around me to the best of my abilities.
I am not asking you to do the same. That will be totally up to you. My mission is going to be to become an agent of change. And change starts with me.
I do hope that these words inspire you to do something similar. Believe me, is a worthwhile effort.
Until we find life in other worlds or until life finds us, we only have each other and the planet we inhabit. Why can't we all just get along, then? :-P
"Everything you are comes from your choices"
In the movie The Iron Giant, Hogarth tells the Giant:
"You are what you choose to be. You Choose. Choose..."
Better human anybody?
