"Everyone thinks of changing the world,
but no one thinks of changing himself."
It is easy to think of ways we'd like the world to change, of ways we would like others to be different. But the reality is that when we change ourselves--to be the best we can be, and to be the loving, creative, joyful beings we were intended to be--then we can bring about change not only in ourselves but in everyone with whom we come in contact.
This week: When you see someone or something you'd like to change, ask yourself: "What can I change in myself to bring about the change I'd like?" Then make that change. Remember that change can occur in an instant, when you react to a situation differently.
