It starts with you

by Rob Arthur

We get so caught up in what’s going on around us.

What we see on the news.

What we read on social media.

What we discuss with friends and family.

We recognize that we’re all connected.

We see all the problems the world faces.

Some affect us directly.

Through our communities.

Our careers.

Our relationships.

Some indirectly.

Issues our country faces.

Injustices we see dealt to others.

Ways in which we see that world work that we wish it wouldn’t.

It can be overwhelming at times.

Especially when we want things to be different.

We might feel powerless.



Like there’s nothing we can do.

Even though there’s so much that needs to be done.

There’s a solution to this.

A way to get started.

Really, the only way.

Look inward.

Look to ourselves.

Look at what we, personally, can do.

Ultimately, that’s all any of us can really do anyway.

Want to create a better world?

Want to make a lasting impact?

Want to promote positive change?

Be the example.

Share your truth.

Set the standard.

It starts with you.

How can you get started?

What steps will you take today?

What role will you play in the world in which you want to live?

Do what you can.

That’s all you can do.

You are worthy.

You’ve got this.
