“Be the change you wish to see in the world”

A famous quote by Mahatma Gandhi

This famous quote by Mahatma Gandhi makes me delve deeply into the person I am.

When I look around, there are certain things that leave me pondering. It takes a second to nitpick different things going on around you.

If we see something we don’t like and want it to be different, why don’t we try to bring about that change? We often make excuses such as “my input will not make a difference, one person cannot change anything”.
Now, just imagine if every single person feels their role has no significance, will we ever be able to move forward, will we ever be able to bring about a change? This question answers for itself. No, we cannot bring about a change if no one is willing to bring that change within themselves.

It is time we all start being that ‘change’. If we disagree with something around us, we should do something about it, each one of us should, even if you are the first to speak out.
We can change the world if we all make that vital decision to “be the change you wish to see in the world”.

– Fatima Ali

  1. Thank you for this quote. It never gets old. Every time I read it, I need to stop and think about how this applies to me. Reading your reflections, I thought, I want the world to be more positive and encouraging. But when I’m irritated, I am not always as positive and kind as I could be. Therefore, when I speak out about a change I would like to see, I will try to remember to speak in a positive and encouraging way. Thank you for following my blog!
