Yesterday was one of those days that make you want to incite change, not only within yourself but in the world. Between it being Martin Luther King Jr. day and the Inauguration day of President Barack Obama you couldn’t help but to be inspired and hopeful for the bright future that this country has ahead and the mark that you could someday leave on it. It just feels like the time to change things is now and that in this present moment you have to be willing to stand up and be that difference that this world needs.
When I think of all of the great people who incited the change that has been made in this world, I think about the fact that these were people who refused to remain silent or stand still. They were people who didn’t care if no one else shared their beliefs or their opinions they were going to make their belief and opinions heard anyway. They were not going to be afraid to step outside of the box that other people kept trying to keep them in. They weren’t afraid to be that change that the world needed and make their mark.
I would like to think that I have already started on that journey to make a great change within this world. While it is only the beginning of this year, with the release of my new magazine and my first guest blog post, which was published last week, that seems to be well received, I am feeling more and more like everything is starting to fall right into place. There are so many things that I want to do in this world and so much change that I want to make.
My dream started off with just writing, then evolved into wanting to build a publishing house, and evolved even more into wanting to create a media empire to pass on to my daughter that not only encourages artists to not conform to what society says they should be, but that they should celebrate their uniqueness. I also, as I saw my daughter begin to experience the bullying that I also once went through as a child, developed an urge to want to use my message for my media company to begin communicating to young children that they should feel okay with being who they are and know that being different is not something to be ashamed of but rather something to embrace.
I’m not sure what it is about this year that feels so different but it just feels like it’s going to bring about the changes that I’ve been waiting for. Of course some of those developments I am working towards are still in the making but I feel like I’m getting so much closer to my destination. I am going to change this world, in my own way and in my own time. I believe all of us have that power. We just have to tap into it. Did yesterday inspire you to want to move toward change?
