One Change at a Time

I can’t change the whole world, but I can change mine.

Change starts from within, one person at a time.

Giving, forgiving, reaching, teaching and I’m

                       Changing my world.

       I will change one element of my life at a time …

 

The physical me will grip the hand of the needy, sharing what I have, pulling others up from despair.           

                        And I will change my world.

The mental me will reach out to mind-starved youth and show them something better.

                        And I will change my world.

The social me will be passionate, spirited, outgoing—befriending the friendless, welcoming to all.

                        And I will change my world.

The emotional me will laugh with those who laugh, grieve with those who suffer.

                       And I will change my world.

The spiritual me will offer hope to those who struggle with identity, pointing to life with purpose.

                       And I will change my world.

 

By changing me, I change the world.
