A great Card a Friend of mine sent...
I Wanted To Change The World
When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.
Now as an old man, I realize that only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.
My husband, the great man he is, has been trying to pound this thought into mine and my children's heads. I have always understood but lately in my life I am realizing that I am only as powerful and influential as my mind. If I don't take the time to strengthen me and my personal confidence then I wont improve my life or the life of others around me.
Have a wonderful day!!
