Time to Follow the Path of Change

This is not a time to follow the path of fear. This is not a time to  become mired in denial. It's not a time to look back at the way things used to be. It's not a time for anger because you didn't deserve this. It's not a time for moaning about how things shouldn't be this way.

It's time for change.

And change--real, world-altering change--is never easy. It's hard. It may be the hardest thing you've ever done in your life. It may encompass everything you are and everything you believe and everything you think you know. Because that is how it works.

Yes, it's a time for anger--anger channeled into strength. Anger channeled into figuring out ways to create change.

It's a time to look forward. To visualize the world the way it needs to be, not the way it is or the way it used to be.

It's a time to work on ourselves, to begin the change within ourselves. And then, like lighting one candle from another, to spread the change. One by one.

They are few and we are many. Hundreds. Thousands. Millions...of individuals.And if each one creates change, even a tiny bit of change, then those changes add up.

It's a time to rebuild tribe and community. Time to find those you can trust, who will have your back, who will help you when you need help...because the power of the tribe is stronger than the power of an individual.

It's time.

It's time to walk the path of change.
