Yes, You Can Change The World
“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world” – Desmond Tutu
Welcome to ‘Change the World’ from The Creative Map.
I know, the feelings are overwhelming.
The problems in the world are impossible to fix.
The news makes you want to cry.
You feel helpless, hopeless, insignificant and small.
But then there’s also this little spark isn’t there?
If you could just grab hold of it, nurture it, fan the flames, let it go BOOM!
I’ll be honest with you from the start. I don’t know how to fix those big problems in the world any more than you do.
But what I have seen are plenty of real people making a very real and very positive change in their community.
What that has taught me is that each and every one of us can make a positive difference in our own little corner of the world.
It might not feel like much.
It might never feel like enough.
But it’s something.
It’s starting something that matters.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
