“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi

The key word here from one of our greatest leaders is ‘be.’  Everyday we have a chance to be.  And the most important being is loving. Being kind, gracious, and helping others. That can start today.

We can and should whisk away frustration, for every moment there is one not spent on being the positive force we hope to be. What type of foundation are you building?  One that crumbles from exhaustion and disbelief, cynicism? Or one of solidity, brick, by brick, with each brick contributing Principle, Love, Kindness, Grace, Strength, Truth, Joy…?

As Gandhi says… the other key word here is ‘you.’ No one can do this for you. Not your partner, your parents, your best friend or your spouse.  You… are the being.

Mahatma Gandhi was a political and spiritual leader during the Indian Independence movement.  He preached resistance through non-violence and mass civil disobedience. He led the Indian National Congress and advocated for the end of poverty and for women’s rights.
