on changing the world

and other super accessible dreams

My mom always taught me to help those less fortunate and that our place on Earth and the meaning of life is to help and serve others and to always try make the world a better place.

In addition to those philosophies, I believe that changing the world does not mean affecting 7 billion people. Sometimes, it means affecting only one.

changing the world is such an inaccessible dream, if you think about it. But call me an idealist 16-year-old, because damn if I’m not gonna give it my all.

I constantly have such a burning desire to change the entire world and affect the whole of society with one fell swoop. I don’t know what I’d do, or how I’d do it, but I’m driving down the Grand Parkway at 80 miles an hour in a 13 year old truck with the windows down and blasting music that makes people like me feel more alive than ever.

but honestly, go out today or tomorrow and look around you. Look at the people who walk down the street next to you, who are looking at the same vegetables as you in the grocery store and just think to yourself “how could I affect their entire life positively right now?” and the more you think that, the more magical life seems.

I believe that anyone can change anyone else’s world. I believe that the world and society is so malleable and so flexible that it doesn’t matter who, or where, or when or how or why. you just have to do it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
