Be the Change You Wish to See in the World
A card with the above quote sits near my desk in my studio. It has been with me for many years. It flows with a belief that I have held most of my life that change happens one person at a time and, if we really want to effect change, then we need to do so one person at a time………and what better time to start influencing people to make good choices than when they are young!
This past week seemed rather mundane in many ways for me –packing many boxes and just a tiny bit of stitching.
But something happened tonight that reminded me of those core beliefs and all that I spent many years coaching people in with my friend, Tom Crum. My dear granddaughter who will be four in September shared a ‘necklace’ that she got at school today.
There wasn’t time to hear the story behind the ‘necklace’ but if my granddaughter’s preschool is acknowledging the kids in the Mighty Lions classroom for being peacemakers, I feel pretty good about our future prospects.
And, that thought seemed worthy of a blog post!
