The human spirit is amazing and we witness it everywhere these days. People take charge and create changes in their lives, countries and their world. This is how a change occurs as nothing changes until you do it.
We see this happening now in different ways. Iran's people are demanding changes at national level. People who have lost jobs create income with new and creative business. We are learning to do more with less and learn to support each other in a new way.
As Gandhi says, "the change you want to see in the world". I would add, be the change you want to see in your life because you are the only one who can make it. It is not under control, employers, schools, institutions, etc. It is up to you. You have authority and now you take this responsibility more than ever …. Finding solutions, building a community, choosing the life you want to create.
So what do you want and what do you need? If you need income, maybe think about what you've always wanted to do but never thought you could create. If you are unemployed now, you can review this while you are looking for a permanent job. Or this could be the time you run into a new task. Try it as a hobby for beginners. Do something you love for a few minutes each day to get you ground, center and open possibilities.
How can you share resources so that money is not necessary? Many people need to cut things. The more we share, the less money is needed. Can you work with a colleague or neighbor? Do you have clothing and / or households that you can give? Perhaps creating a scope for these items. Consider business services with friends and neighbors. You may need to offer your accounting service to your neighbor who is well around the house and can help you with repairs.
Look at yourself to find solutions to the challenges of your life. Support others and use services whenever possible. Take the power you have and your own responsibility. Taking responsibility for our lives and our choice encourages others to do the same and create a change for our families, society, nation and world.
