”Be the change you wish to see”
I have been pondering over these words after an insightful and fulfilling conversation with Rev S. Yes, these words were not new to my ears, but they seem to have packed a punch, he explained that 2 years ago he decided to live ’deliberately ’ a simple and yet healthy lifestyle. A lifestyle that would allow him to be the change he wants to see in life. To cut a long story short, he decided to live a lifestyle that takes care of the environment whilst living and enjoying his life.
Familiar Statement– Most of us would agree that we have heard this statement and have agreed with it. But how many of us have followed through with making a change we want to see? I must say…..since our lovely conversation, I have been haunted by these familiar words. I feel the conviction they’ve laid into my heart- I have asked myself (what change do I wish to see?) I had to look in the mirror while this question pulled my heart strings. I knew, there are things I have changed and I still have a lot I would like to change positively.
What about our legacy– We live at a time where everything happen at a click of a button or a swipe. This notion has trickled from microwaves to mobile phones. A lot of us have grown too accustomed to what the world has to offer that we expect everything to happen instantaneously. Where does it stop? In all honesty, I feel this will not stop but can be managed by us changing one thing at a time…..a change that leaves a positive legacy. As less disciplined as I may be compared to Rev S, I know I do want to make a positive change – no matter how small.
What change do you want to see?
