So, You Want to Change the World?

So, You Want to Change the World? 

 

So, you want to change the world? So, you want to make a difference? 

As you drift off to sleep, eyes fluttering, heartbeat settling, peace over taking you, 

You dream of traveling across all the seas, all the continents, all the galaxies in the entire universe. 

You dream of solving world peace, of curing the deadliest diseases in the world, of creating an innovative product that could change the world as we know it. 

You dream of being President, of being the King or Queen, of being a billionaire. 

 

So how can you change the world? How can you make a difference? 

You open your eyes with a new perspective. 

You open your eyes with a renewed mind ready to tackle the day. 

You open your eyes with gratitude in your heart because you were given another day on this crazy planet. 

 

Your heart beats a little faster as you start your day. 

Thump.  

Your heart beats a little faster as you recall those amazing dreams to change the world.  

Thump. Thump. 

Your heart beats a little faster as you begin to worry. 

 Thump. Thump. Thump 

 

Your mind gets a little darker as insecurities sink in. 

Your mind gets a little darker as plans change. 

Your mind gets a little darker as people tell you, "You are not enough". 

Tears drop down your cheeks.  

Drip. Drip. 

Tears begin to flood down your face and suddenly that renewed mind you woke up with, is nowhere to be seen.  

 

 

As you cry, a small whisper dances around your ears. 

A whisper that says, "My child, my child, do not be afraid." 

A whisper from your Heavenly Father. 

A whisper that says, "You are enough". 

 

A whisper that says, "My child, let me change your perspective on the world around you, let me show you how important you are to me. 

My child, you dream of changing the world, you dream of making a difference. 

My child, it starts by changing your heart within. 

 

Those eyes of yours were created to see people who do not feel seen. 

Those eyes of yours were created to see lives transform by speaking my word. 

Those eyes of yours were created to see yourself like I see you. 

 

That heart of yours was created to love others who have never been loved before. 

That heart of yours was created to forgive others, even the ones that were not sorry. 

That heart of yours was created to care for yourself like I care for you. 

 

That mind of yours was created to dream big, crazy wild dreams. 

That mind of yours was created to help counsel others with my wisdom.  

That mind of yours was created to remember whose you are." 

 

So, you want to change the world? So, you want to make a difference? 

Open those eyes wider each day, let your heart race with passion, let your mind wander into depths of love and peace.  

 

Changing the world starts in the little things, changing the world starts by changing yours.
