Hope, Love, Optimism. It’s the only way to affect change.

Better to light a candle than curse the darkness

My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.
by Jack Layton

I wrote a post the other day that has left me feeling so sad.  I took on this project with the hope that I could get the word out there about ways to educate the poor in India.  But sometimes I read things that make the problem seem so big.  I know every single little bit helps, so we have to keep doing things.  Every little step will lead to big change.  But I wish I could affect more lives, more dramatically, much sooner.  We all do the best we can, I know.  We all have our own issues to deal with, I know that’s true for me.  But I still wish we could affect change faster.

This morning I was feeling hopeless.  So I did a search for some inspiration.  I found the quote above.  It’s a good one.  It reminds me that we all just need to keep doing what we can to create the world we want.  Every little bit helps.  And for me personally, I need to just keep on keeping on.

Does this quote speak to you?  Tell me how.
