Pin It Now! It is no secret that most people crave power.
We crave power over other people.
We crave power over our decisions.
We crave power over our emotions.
We crave power over our career.

What would happen is we stopped caring about who has the most power? If, instead, we focused on sharing power and making everyone feel loved and accepted. Is that even possible?

The hard thing about talking about world peace, tolerance, and acceptance is that changing the world comes with a heavy price tag. It is an understatement to say that getting the whole world to cooperate is a big undertaking.

So how do we remain optimistic in something that seems impossible? I think we focus on what we can do as individuals. We may not be able to change the world... but we can definitely have an impact on the people around us, the people directly involved in our lives. So I encourage you to live with an accepting heart. Look for opportunities to make people feel loved. Encourage the pursuit of equality.

Be optimistic for change. It may just happen someday if we all do our part.

"The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace."
Psalm 29:11

  1. Thank you so much for putting me on your blogroll! That means the world to me. :)

    I love your posts, they are profound yet honestly simple.

    Power is something that resonates that the heart of most problems we face--if not all. It indeed creates inequality among all people, even in a modern world. It's important to be aware of prejudice language, and choose to correct it when you hear it. Make the decision to abstain from any kind of prejudice thinking, and we are one step closer to a world [or even nation for that matter] of equal opportunity.
