It seems simple enough.
WORLD CHANGE BEGINS AT HOME.
An easy concept but one so often missed. In an effort to make an impact in this great big world, some of the greatest opportunities slip by in our own backyards. I’ll be the first to admit, I used to think I HAD to travel the world to change it. Turns out, the greatest impact we can make is right in front of us. Don’t get me wrong. There is plenty to do beyond the confines of our own four walls and loads of opportunities to do it. But, let’s not choose to “change the world” at the expense of the world right before us.
Parenting is one of the hardest, most challenging adventures we will ever encounter. As a mama of four littles I will be the first to say parenting is NOT for the faint of heart! But, along with that looonnggg laundry list of chaos, comes the greatest joy and opportunity to leave an imprint of good on this world!
It’s in the little tasks at home the extraordinary exists. Through bedtime stories and kisses goodnight, pancake mornings and pizza nights, bike rides and family hikes. The power to truly BE THE CHANGE happens every day!
Never for a moment think what you do in your everyday doesn’t matter. The moments you think don’t matter are the moments they will remember forever! Bottom line. Moms (and dads) are EVERYDAY World Changers. Just imagine if we all started acting like it. Together we really could change the world!
All my love,
