Be the Change? You Already Are.Blog — By Kim Gottschild on February 25, 2013 at 6:47 am
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
The quote, which may or may not have actually come from Gandhi, is everywhere. Mugs, bumper stickers, inspirational cards command us to morph ourselves into something that will impact the world for the better.
But did you know you can’t be the change you wish to see in the world?
Because you already ARE.
The second you came into existence, you changed the planet. Your being brought joy not only to your family and their friends, but God himself. God delights in you, his creation. And as you grew and developed, and continue to grow and develop, your presence forever touched, and touches still, the entire planet through that lovely thing we call the ripple effect. Just because you exist.
You are the change. Go be you.
