We don’t need a lot of money to change the world or lots of time to make a difference in our community.
I’ve come to a point in my life where I realized that I can make a difference. I used to think that I had to have a whole lot of money to help make a difference or a whole lot of time to be a blessing to someone. But what I realized is the little things in life can change someone’s outlook, thereby changing the world. It’s a bit like the teaching from the Talmud.
To review: when we render a kind act upon someone else, it just might brighten up that person’s perspective. And, that person may one day do the same for another. And with a little luck, it continues in perpetuity, thus affecting an untold amount of people and thereby “changing the world.”
Just being a mentor to someone who is trying to reach their goals is a great opportunity to help change someone’s life. Or, what about sharing a home cooked meal with someone who is elderly and less able to be independent? We can all take the time to volunteer once a month, even every other month, as this is also a great way to give back. We can all change the world and make a difference in our community by, as mentioned above, rendering a sincere act of kindness.
We should also be aware of our own biases. Take the time to critically examine your own potential bias; if you feel like you may have those feelings against a certain group then try to reach out and connect with a member of that group, especially through an act of charity or friendship. This signifies that you are coming from a place of love and are interested in self-improvement.
I had an opportunity to meet a beautiful woman, Felicha Stanley, who is a freelance writer and author of her new book WPower: “The Strength of an Empowered Woman to Change the World.” Her book is focused on the issues that matter most to women such as equality, paying it forward for another woman, making sure that women’s voices are being heard, and women as agents of change. Felicha Stanley is the President and CEO of Women Empowering Women (WEW). WEW is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving women who want to be empowered in every aspect of their lives. Also, she is an educator, advisor, and public speaker; Ms. Stanley applies her leadership skills and experiences to help women that she meets who want mentoring, job skills, or a hand up.
