As much as I care about the world around me like the warming oceans, the major pollution (carbon, plastic, etc.), the obstructions that face human rights… I know that we are far from where we need in order to consider human beings as “civilized”.
I have passion for these things. I have a strong desire to do more within these fields. I just don’t think some of these things are worth fighting for anymore.
The interests are more about the money than they are to evolve.
In order to make real change, there needs to be more than just a few groups of people scattered here and there.
It takes loads of people who want to see real change, get together to create that global impact.
Passion is only a percentage, but it’s a start.
The part I need to work on is to keep going and refine my best methods of expression in which I can create real, effective, and positive change in the world I live in.
I’m not getting the right nutrients for me to grow as a person.
I’ve noticed this for a while. Sometimes you think the people in your life want to help you be the best person you can possibly be, but when I look around.. I’ve actually gotten a lot of discouragement from people who haven’t done as much with their lives.
I’m out here trying to maximize the potential and value of my life. I’m not out here trying to settle for a mediocre life.
So I say reject discouragement
but at the same time,
accept it as encouragement.
Feed yourself the proper nutrient, self-talk, and encouragement necessary to grow. That’s what you truly need to grow.
USE IT AS FUEL!
I went on a trip and the thought came to me
“If you want to make an impact, you need to use your voice.”
Just one voice can make a difference.
We all make a difference, some way or another.
We are.. interconnected.
