One thing.

A new year always seems to bring about a desire for change, for improvement, for becoming a better you (me). So when Ashley over at The Shine Project posted about change and challenge to become a better person my eye was caught and I jumped.

The first challenge...to answer the question
"If I could change one thing in the world, what would it be?"
Write down the first thing that comes to mind.
I took this challenge and direction to heart and the first word to come to mind was 
I wasn't sure what this meant at first. LOVE. What does that have to do with changing the world?
So, I decided to just take time. To think. Ponder. Determine how I could use love to change the world. 

So, what did I come up with?
First, I am a simple girl. I have simple needs, simple wants.
Second, I am a "think globally, act locally" type of girl.
Third, I like my life to be an open book. I love my family and I love my friends. People are what make my world go around. 
My desire is for the people I know and love to know I love them. I want them to know that I am genuine, that I am truly thankful for them to be in my life. I want to not only tell people but show them love.
And how will this change the world?
I believe that when people know they are loved, when you show them, when you tell them, when you are there and unconditional not only will they feel better about themselves they will be better people. By loving big the people we know, the people we come into daily contact with these people will in turn make a difference. It's all a circle...what comes around goes around. LOVE.
