Dear World: You only need to change one thing.

I read a T-shirt yesterday that said: “Everybody wants to change the world, but nobody wants to change.” The sentence is so true it’s freaky. That’s the way it is. Everyone is complaining and pointing out all the wrong things going on, but nobody does anything about it. The shirt bears wisdom in every letter. Each and every one of us need only change ONE thing: Ourselves. Start with the man in the mirror, as Michael Jackson so wisely said. And the thing is the only thing we can really change is us. You can’t change other people… not really. We were all given freedom of thought. We all get to do what we want, albeit with consequences. So how about we work on changing a little part of us. No criticism necessary. We can all improve a little. It’s what evolution is all about. And when you change, watch how others change toward you.

So today I’m going to work on me… I will try to have more patience. Tomorrow I’ll work on something else. What will you work on?


I like putting my thoughts and ideas down on paper. Why not share them with the rest of the world?
