How are you going to change the world?

I recently came across a blog that asked their readers this question, "How are you going to change the world?" They had anyone and everyone take a photo of themselves holding a piece of paper with a statement on how they are going to change the world. It was so inspiring to me to see people from all across the universe show how they are going to make a difference. There were responses like, "Love each one" "Smile More" "Stop Human Trafficking" "Designing and creating clothing that alleviates poverty" and "Be joyful."

I want to ask you, "How are you going to change the world?" As one small individual in this massive world, what are you going to do? Sounds intimidating... one individual in a large world. Don't be discouraged. Because what you do plus what someone else does plus another will add up to make a MASSIVE impact. We can't do everything, but we can all do something. And each little bit helps.

My response would be, "Love with no exceptions" That means that no matter what race, economic status, or personality type someone is, I will choose to love them. No matter what things they've done, I must love. No matter how dorky they are or how arrogant, I will love. There should be no exceptions in love.

So we ask you, "How are you going to change the world?" We'd love to hear your ideas so please reply to this post and begin changing the world.

(This idea came from the I-Heart blog. To see some of the photos from their post, click here)

I'm going to try my hardest to be unselfish, and I'd love to help kids with disablilities as a job when I grow up. I want to show kids what it feels like to love Jesus with all their heart, and how God gave us horses to leave our worries behind for a bit.

I am going to change the world by helping children with disabilities and troubled teens. By opening a horse ranch. I also want to help by making hats for the Premature babies in the hospitals in my city! I saw your post Elizabeth and I really like it. I don't know who you are but I know that God will help you achieve anything you ask. He will never leave you! I didn't know that there were other girls thinking about the same things I do! God Bless!
