[wtr-time] There are so many complex topics that need attention. Take climate change, equal rights for men and women or domestic abuse. Choose one social issue to dedicate your life to and by the end of your life it’s very likely the problem still exists but hopefully less urgent. Together, there is so much more we can do to make the world a better place. Read on for my top 10 quotes on making a difference.
Making a difference
In the blog When all of us speak up, change will come, I talked about drawing circles around ourselves and others to sense what matters most in our lives. I truly believe that making a difference starts by taking care of your own circle first. That circle includes your own dreams, wishes and needs and like the circle of everyone else – they yearn to be taken care of.
Giving people your attention, a helping hand, or your time are all forms of giving back and it can make you feel good. Although giving back and helping others might seem a great philosophy to live your life by, it’s not one-dimensional. It’s also important to take care of your own circle, and make sure to that you give back to others when you truly have something to give.
Once you find a way to make yourself happy, you can broaden your energy to find a way to help others. It’s when you make everything conversational and also equal in a way. I mean, my own thoughts and feelings matters as much as yours, right? Read on to get the quotes on making a difference that I’ve collected for you.
