In my experience, the change we seek will be dependent on what motivates us and our level of commitment.
If our motivation is to find fault, then fault we will find.
If it’s to make a political statement, then many statements will be made.
If it’s to seek perfection, then nothing will be accomplished.
If our commitment is to invest in a life and to support an individual even after their story rips every ounce of air from our being and leaves us breathless, then we become the change makers.
When the very people we’ve committed to help turns on us and even rejects our help, when they leave us abruptly and we’re left mourning the sudden loss, yet we stay committed, we’ve become facilitators of change.
To those of us who have planted the seeds, and to the ones who came after and watered the garden, a blossom IS coming. To those who have remained to tend the garden, be encouraged.
The fruits of your hard work have already shown itself to be good, very good. Be encouraged!
