Be The Change: What Needs to be Done to Change Our World

Joined: 12/10/2012

In 2013, many things must be accomplished in order to change to the world we live in today. We need to change the general mindset of our population, of all levels of our society. Day in and day out we are accustomed to a the same routine which prevents us from actually interacting with the world and others in a positive manner. We are continuously forced to do the same things over and over again, suppressing any free thinking in order to make world around us a better place.
    You always here people questioning the why some people do this and why they don’t do this. Our daily lives are set in stone, preventing us from having the opportunity to change and make our personal lives better as well as the world around us. For example, from 8AM to 2:30PM you are in school, after school for at least 3 hours you are either doing homework or studying. Where is the time for free expression, thought, and time to work towards other things.  We don’t have the time in the day to give attention to little things that would make the world around us a better place. Even though we don’t have the time, we are often criticized which adds to a continuos cycle of negativity.
    In order to change our world and make 2013 better we must break the routine. Doing this will initially give us more time to think about ourselves and our actions. How we can change ourselves if we are always working or always studying or always on the go? We need more personal time to reflect on our actions. By doing this we can change the world in 2013 for the better. It won’t happen overnight, but more focus in our society on interactions between others and less focus on the daily grind of work or school will go a long way. This may help improve relationships with your family, friends, and coworkers. This will all lead to a chain reaction and improve our society. Our emotional health is based off our interactions with others. We rely on others to get through the hardships in life. We all need to take a moment to stand back and decide the right path to make the world in 2013 a better place. It won’t happen by sitting in a desk all day writing notes or going to meeting after meeting. If we can accomplish this we will see gradual improvements to the point where our society will change for the better. In the end, improving our relationships with others, even if just spending an extra hour a day with someone, will help everyone and make 2013 a better year for the whole world.
