Be the change you wish to see in the world my son. I would love to say I was the first person to say this my boys, but it has been said by many people. It is something that I have believed in since you come into the world Rakeiora. It still amazes me how much my world changed since you boys came along.
You can change the world
You have all the power to change the world. I have seen so many people pass the ability to influence others away, and therefore believe there is nothing that they can do to change something they truely believe in. The truth that I believe in is that it is completely in your hands.
We give this power to others, to celebrities, politicians and other personalities. This is definitely true that they do have influence and it has always been my dream to see these people help us to focus on what is truely important. But this is not always the case.
This means my boys that we are responsible for this change.
Be the change
Be the change my boys, love deeply, care for others, care for our animals, pick up rubbish, respect our earth, know the truth about where things come from, understand consumerism, live a life of value, of adventure and understand that within you is the only version of your true self. These are some of my values, that guide me to walk my own path and to be the change I want to see.
So how do we do this?
Live the way you want to see the world. Love the people in your life my son, tell them everyday, apologise, make sure your loved ones know you care and never miss a chance to tell someone you love them. Open doors for others who are struggling, and stop when someone needs help.
There are so many ways to change this world. It happens in a smile, when someone sees you pick up a piece of rubbish, or by making sure others understand your reasons why you don’t do something that you don’t feel is right.
Be the change you wish to see in the world my son
Gandhi spoke these words many years before, and through my life they have always resonated with me too. Change starts with us my boys, and you have the ability to affect others. Our world needs us to start these changes.
I hope these words guide you as they have guided me. They remind me of what I want you boys to see from me, as I imagine you standing with me as I go through moments without you. One day I hope you will discover alot earlier than I did, that the true you is inside you, it is the only voice that will matter in your world. Be the change you wish to see in the world my boys.
