To Make The World Better: A Recipe

To make the world better.

What is the recipe?

I am one person. I want to make a difference.

What can I do?

I wake up and have many choices. I feel tired. I feel overwhelmed. I feel small.  My feelings don’t define who I am.

What can I do?

Mix in these ingredients.

Ingredient 1: I choose to take enthusiastic action. I choose to look at the world with fresh eyes and appreciate everything around me. I choose to tell those in my life that I am grateful for them.

I still feel tired. I still feel overwhelmed. I still feel small. My feelings don’t define who I am.

What can I do?

Ingredient 2: I choose to listen carefully to those around me and give them the love they need. I choose to believe in my purpose of spreading joy and freedom. I choose to serve those around me to better their experience rather than mine.

I feel less tired. I feel less overwhelmed. I feel less small. My feelings don’t define who I am.

What can I do?

Ingredient 3: I choose to write down three things I’m grateful for in my life. I choose to go out of my way to help someone who needs my encouragement. I choose to take a walk in nature and enjoy the beauty around me.

I feel awake. I feel like I can handle anything. I feel connected to source. My feelings don’t define who I am.

But I can feel I am now LIVING who I AM meant to be and that is more than a feeling. This is me. It is WHO I AM.

I am one person and I am making a difference.

This is what I did.

To make the world better. A recipe for healing and love.

Today the world is better because I was here and I didn’t let my feelings define who I am. I made choices to guide me to my highest self; to my place of living who I AM rather than relying on what I feel.

How you feel isn’t WHO YOU ARE.

You are what you think. You are how you act.

You aren’t what you feel. Feelings come and go.

Guide your choices by the change you want to make in the world, not how you feel today.

Tomorrow will feel different, but today, there is still time to change the world.

One of my favorite authors of all time has a beautiful mantra…”Today isn’t over yet”.  Her name is Alexandra Franzen. Please visit her inspiring site.

So Lisa, (and anyone else reading this) today there is still time to change the world.

p.s. I wrote this for myself so I could read it and remember it and execute it when I feel sad, depressed, lonely, hopeless, and heartbroken, like I did today.

I will read it often in the future and mix these ingredients together for changing the world.

I hope it helps you too, when you need a boost.
