We live in a world that is always so busy. For some reason we have created this culture of getting involved in everything and just doing, doing, doing. Changemakers are especially good at this. There are so many issues in the world that need fixing, there’s no time to lose and we just must get on with it. I know all about this, because I have fallen into this trap many times.
But how often do we sit back and reflect on where we are at, what we have achieved and what we want for the future? How often do we just sit and enjoy our surroundings and just be in the moment, grateful for everything we have and everything that is.
To me the Christmas / January break is a time to do just that. As a Changemaker up for creating big changes in the world, this is essential. We need to give ourselves time to reflect, plan and indulge in our ideas and possibilities for the future. We need time to think about what breakthroughs we want in the year ahead both personally and in the communities we work with.
This Christmas I invite YOU as a passionate, committed changemaker to allow yourself time to dream. Wherever it be, at the beach, in the bush, in your own backyard, dream away your thoughts and ideas and come away refreshed, clear and ready for a wonderful year of creating positive change in your community. Go on, you won’t regret it!
