National and state politics are such an annoyance for me. If you are currently watching our national political climate, both parties do nothing but bash one another about doing nothing when in reality neither one of them are doing much. And what's worse is that so many people waste their time rooting for one party or the other like it's the SuperBowl or something. All the while little changes.
The fact is this; no government and no person has the ability to make your life better. Only we can. Notice I said we, not you or me. If we can create a culture where working together, listening to one another and learning from each other becomes a way of life, we will have the world that we will be proud for our children to inherit. If we want a better school, we must stop looking outward for someone to provide it to us and start looking inward for what we can do. The same rule applies to our country.
Do you want to be happy? Start with you. Do you want your school to be a better place? Then be a better person for your school. Changing your perspective won't end problems. In fact it won't reduce them either. All I'm saying is this. Our attitude determines our altitude. Our reaction determines the impact of our future action, and our outlook on life will determine if we will look out for others.
The video below says it all. We must refrain from hoping for change. Hope is not a strategy. If we want things to change, we must BE the change that we want to see in our world. If we wait for someone else to change the world for us, we may be waiting a while.
