A Travellerspoint blog

Be the change you wish to see in the world

How can one expect the world to change for the greater good if they cannot first see it in themselves.

I first started this blog to write about the some what memorable things that have happened in my life. I think I have felt that since being back in Australia that nothing memorable has happened worth writing about. However each day I'm seeing good things happen, so it's time I start expressing my thoughts. I feel the need to have a fabulous topic conjured up in my head before I can begin to write. Although every topic lately has ended with an unfinished sentence and my procrastination getting in the way.

With the worlds population being as monumental as it is, it's quite easy to remember how small a part we all play in it. However if every person stopped playing their small part, everything would quite simply fall apart. Now I'm not saying I'm a huge contributor, I'm not an engineer, a doctor, nor do I work for the government or anything else seemingly important.

But I am a traveller, a traveller with an imagination that stretches farther than the eye can see. I see the world with an open mind and can never see enough of it. I want to be able to experience all that there is to offer, to see another way of living, see every angle and learn to understand the many different lives people lead.

Every person wishes to be surrounded by the people that will make their life a better place, I want to be that person that people want to surround themselves around. I count myself lucky every single day, to be living, not living a life of grand gesture but just to be living. I live my life with people that I love, people that I feel lucky to have met or be related too.

In doing just these small things, such as staying positive or going that extra mile for someone, we are helping make a change in the world. If we can all live a life with a 'pay it forward' attitude then we all in turn will live a better life and have it paid back to us.

Make every moment count, because why would you waste a second doing anything but that.
