Everyone thinks of changing the world but no one thinks of changing himself.

  The World is Falling Apart! – Look at all those crazy people on the other side…
if only they would… (insert complaint here…)

We all do it. We look out upon the world and see what is going on; watch the news, read the papers, listen to the rumors and we all feel like we have every right to diagnose the situation and subscribe our prescription to rectify it.

What makes us so smart?

We are NOT perfect!


Contrary to public belief – we all have something that at least one other person in the entire world wishes they could change about us. Personally I can’t possibly imagine what anyone would want to change about me… ha!

I try to be the best I can be.  I try to be there for others.  I try to do good deeds. I do my absolute best when working, writing… not so much in the cleaning department – but I try to portray myself in the best possible light.i hate housework

  • I know for a fact that if my husband could change one thing about me, it would be to make me a better house cleaner.
  • I’ll bet I have at least one friend or relative that wishes I had more time for them.
  • I know for a fact my dogs wish I would play more (with them) and work less.

houseworkSo lo and behold – I’m not perfect!

And that is just a list I pulled from the little things.  I’ll bet if I look harder, really dig deep I can find things I may not be proud of about myself…
but why would I do that?

 but no one thinks of changing himself.

So if we ALL take a look at ourselves.  housework1Every single one of us (even those in the political arena – which is all I will say about that ever) and focus on one thing to change maybe that could help the (complainable situation here).

But what do I know?

It’s not like I’m going to put everything I have into my housework?

    I think you and Kim were thinking along the same lines, except she didn’t mention “housework”.  I want everyone to live in peace instead of thinking up ways to hurt or destroy others.  It isn’t that simple, is it?  If only we loved as Jesus loved——that’s what we need to do!  Hugs, Sylvia
