Be The Change


What is happening in this world today? Although I have a lot to be thankful for there is also a ton of things that are weighing on me every single day.

I was talking with my Mom the other day, we were just talking about life as we know it now “Pandemics, child trafficking, working from home, school from home, no work, and the list goes on” and the only thing I kept thinking about was the phrase…


Think about it: only YOU can make any change in your life. No one can do it for you. On a bigger scale, a big change can start with one person who has the courage to take that leap of faith and change first. So why do we feel stuck, sluggish, and weak when we should be feeling empowered, excited, and ready to concur each day.

Now if you’re like me, we all have bad days, I get that, but dwelling on the bad only brings bad. So why not dwell on the good things in your life, if your on Toledo Mom’s page I know one good thing we can all CHEER about… YOUR LITTLE/BIG ONE! What a blessing we have been given to be called that child’s Mama.

Now think about this… that little one is always watching.

How many times have they done something and you thought to yourself… now that was just like me! so why not teach this generation to rise up and BE THE CHANGE!

I think we get stuck in the “woe is me” mindset all too often and speaking for myself that place is toxic and it only brings bad… Bad moods, bad behavior, bad choices, etc.

What if you could consciously make a change and with that changes brings good. It could be anything from saying “today I will choose to eat healthily” and when you do eat healthy all day long you have made a positive change in your body which will help you to keep going.

I’ll leave you with this… our world is very TOXIC right now; products we put on our bodies, the food we put in our bodies, shows we put in our minds, people we surround ourselves with, and this list to can go on and on. But, if you rise up and make ONE change, what bad could come out of it… if you’re like me I see only good coming out of positive changes and good feels like a whole lot better then the Toxic we live in right now.
