Bloganuary: Jan. 29, 2022

For the month of January, I’m going to be doing my best to participate in Bloganuary, a daily blogging challenge. I know it’s a divergence from what I typically write, but participating in this challenge is on my Memory List for this year.

Today’s prompt:

How are you changing the world?

I strive to live by a simple motto: Be the change I want to see in the world. Apparently, after doing a bit of digging on Google, that quote has been misattributed to Gandhi. But it doesn’t change the significance to me.

Nothing will ever change if everyone continues to do the same thing. If I want to live in a more compassionate world, which is what I want, I must live more compassionately. I do so, knowing full well, that my overall impact in the world may only be as extensive as a small pebble dropping into a vast ocean. And that’s ok. It’s still moving the needle, no matter how slight, in the direction I want to see the world go.

So, each day, I extend as much love and compassion I can to all beings. That makes my world a place in which I enjoy living. And if my little pebble creates some ripples in the ocean, well then that’s a wonderful benefit.


Follow along and make memories.
