How to Change the World

If you want to change the world go home and love your family.  Wiser words have never been spoken in my opinion. We see such horrible atrocities occurring throughout the world and often we feel helpless in preventing such things but the truth is all of these horrible things are done by people who have been wounded in their own lives in some sort of way. If you've never been hurt by someone you love, you're less likely to out into the world and hurt those who you love. So the simplest form of making an impact on the world is to simply love those around you to the best of your ability so that they too can go out into the world and spread the love they have experienced.

Let's start with self love. I believe in self affirmations that uplift. If you're not hearing the words your soul needs to hear then you say them to yourself while looking in the mirror at least 3 times per day. It really does work.  If you love and value yourself, you're less likely to let people into your circle who negatively impact your life. You'll have less patience for the bullshit because at your core, you'll understand and will be able to recognize who feeds your spirit and who sucks the spirit out of you.

Do some physical exercise. Do something to get the heart pumping at least 40 minutes per day to stimulate all the blood and endorphins. You may even notice that you're slimming down and toning up. Looking great is only a bonus byproduct to feeling great.

Give yourself a moment to internalize and listen. Basically it's meditation for a moment to quiet the noise so that you can process all the stimulus that life is sending you. You need these moments just as much as you need the exercise.

Spend as much time as you can cuddling your loved ones. Skin to skin contact with infants increases their mental development and just calms the soul. If it works for babies then it works for you as an adult or your older children. Touch them on their face or a tight hug let's them know they're appreciated and it reinforces their own sense of love in the world.
