Change for the better

the act or instance of making or becoming different

Day to day, it seems like nothing has changed, but when you look back, all of a sudden everything is different. What if every week, once or twice, you changed something. When you wakeup, change your attitude. Change the face you make walking down the street to a smile. When you walk past the homeless man, that you usually don’t pay attention to, you put your “change” in his cup. What if we all gave a little change everyday? Would we see ourselves slowly grow into the person God has always meant us to be? Nobody was ever born running. We first have to crawl, then with our wobbly legs we walk, then we run, and then eventually we jump, and then, if we know anything about change and where it has brought us so far, we know that the only logical succession after jump is to fly. We have to change, not just for ourselves, but for the world. We should all take the leap, jump and see what a little change can bring to our lives. Some people are so afraid of change, but it’s inevitable, so I believe in a necessary leap of faith and to make that change positive. It’ll be scary, and it’ll make your heart race, but you will want to look back and have a life full of “I did” and not “I wish”. If every person in the world made one positive change a week, imagine what we could do. “Be The Change You Want To See In The World” is about change in ourselves, and a journey of the small, and big, things you can do everyday that can change the world.

With Love,

I have a dream too

 

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. day, where we remember the man who was instramental in the commencement of the integration of America and reminding the world that, regardless of the color of anyone’s skin, we are all people worth equality and freedom. Martin Luther King Jr. was just one man. One. Who had an idea and a passion for what he believed in and the courage to pursue it. With only a dream, he took on the world, and changed it completely. People may have called him crazy, a lunatic, for believing in something greater than himself, but he worked hard everyday and made that dream a reality. I’d like to think that everybody has a little of Martin Luther King Jr. in them. We all have dreams, things we want to accomplish, things that can change the world if we only have the courage to pursue them. Mine is to live in a world full of kindness, where people give, love, and remind others everyday of the importance of their existence.

A lot of times in pageants the judges ask you “if you could have lunch with anybody, dead or alive, who would they be and what would you say?”

I would say Martin Luther King Jr. I would thank him for setting an example for young people today and teaching them that their dreams have the power to completly alter the entire world if they work hard everyday and make their ideas a priority.

And to top it all off I would tell him that my name is Cedar Chambers, and my dream is to make the world a better place. And I will, one day at a time. image
