You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
I have been thinking about upgrading….. upgrading myself. I want to be better than I am right now. I want to be a better wife, mother, and friend. After my grandmother died and then my mom I kind of fell out of reality. I lost touch with people and crawled into myself. I quit being so many things. I haven’t talked as deeply with my kids or listened as carefully to what they had to say. I haven’t spent quality time with my husband or when we were together I wasn’t really there. I was within myself. I haven’t been a good friend either. I have lost touch with some great people that I miss. I have also lost touch with my family and I miss them too. I used to do so much more too. I volunteerred, wrote letters to military and helped where possible. I have lost myself….. and I miss me.
I just realized that I have to be the one to change. I can’t fix the world but I can plant some seeds. I can be an example to others. I can get out there and do what I wish everyone was doing. Maybe someone will take notice and join me.
