I can’t change people. I can’t change a person. I can’t change the way people act, the way people react, the way they talk, the way they think. I have no control over others. Although I cannot change a person, or control a person, I can influence a person, I can influence people. I can live my life in such a way that causes others to question, to question their actions, reactions, talk, and thinking. I can live a life that challenges others. Convicts others. Encourages others. And again, influences others. I can live a life that speaks, LOUD and CLEAR! Living such a life is powerful! Living a focused, disciplined, loving life, speaks louder than a thousand words. This type of life will influence many lives, impact many lives, known, but more often than not, unknown. People are going to do, what people are going to do. They will say, what they want to say. That’s life. You can’t change it, you can’t control it. But you can change yourself. You can control yourself. You can be and become the individual you want to. You can be the person you want others to be. Be the person, the individual, who influences. Impacts. Lives life fully. Let all the noise go. Let all the distraction go. Let all the fixed people go. Enjoy the moment. Embrace the gifts, the opportunities, you have been given today. Embrace the beauty. The wonder. The adventure. Embrace the unknown. Embrace the struggle. Embrace who you are, who you are becoming. Embrace the possibility, the possibility, that today, your life may influence another!
