Be the Change

This is one of my favorite quotes.

be the change (570x570)

There have been lots of changes in my life lately. I’m taking on some new things professionally and it is really exciting to try something new after five years as a social worker. It feels like I’m fresh out of school again (in a good way). But change is not always easy for me and there have been some growing pains. It’s scary to take a leap sometimes. The thing that keeps me going as a social worker is the motivation to help people–that’s what’s most important. Even if you’re not in a helping profession, you can make an effort to be the change. Be nice to strangers whether in the grocery store or on the internet. Treat others the way that you would like to be treated. Recycle. And when you have a chance to do good, do it.

  1. What a lovely quote and such nice thoughts you added. I’m sure you do make the day better for people you encounter throughout the day as you do your readers. One of my favorite things to do is to pick a grouchy check out person and try to get a smile or laugh out of him or her. The nearest grocery store is Walmart so who could blame them for being a bit cranky? Any way, I am not sure if I am being nice or not because I really enjoy the challenge.
