Time to Change the World.

The easiest thing to do in the world is to complain… to complain about how corrupt our government is, to complain how bad things are, to complain how what others should do to change things. But the one thing we fail to do is look at what WE can do to change things.

I believe strongly in the statement that change begins with one’s self. If we start to make little changes in our own behaviors and attitudes, then we can start to live in a better world. It’s very much like wanting to get well or be healed from an affliction or illness. If we don’t take steps to get better, such as take it easy, rest or take medications, we won’t get well. This is true, too, for the world we live in. If we keep complaining and do nothing, then change can’t happen.

So, here I am, taking an important first step to making change happen. How? From this day on, I will make it a point to find the silver lining in every cloud, as cliché as that may be. Rather than focusing on negativity, I will be positive. This is inspired by a good friend of mine who has even started a blog to share to the world how important it is to, in her words, frame things in sunlight. Her self-advocacy is to promote positivity. And to spread this advocacy, she hosted a contest entitled Heal the World: A Positive Photo Blog Contest that encourages us all to also see things framed in sunlight. I sure have. This is my contribution to healing our world. Come join me.

    for the first time I could safely say, walang dayaan na nangyari sa halalan 🙂 (yung sa canvassing at tallying of votes )
