Module 6.2 – All

Module 6.2 - A Movement Happens One Person at a Time

Do you believe one person can make a difference in the world? Why or why not? Where do you apply yourself to make a difference in the world? Is there a danger of believing your change is too small? What’s the value and danger of trying to be the first to make change?

Journal about your last three conversations with friends or family. Was the content of these conversations hopeful or negative? Be honest of the tone. Is there room for improvement on your part in those conversations by intentionally working to be a thermostat and not a thermometer? Review if there are any core issues that make it difficult for you to speak hopefully about any of the topics in those conversations.
Think about one small change you can make in your life that can impact your sphere of influence. Try and live out that change for one week and journal about anything you see or feel in doing so. Last week you shared in you Core Journal about what you do in your life to secure your personal transformation. Spend some more time on that topic. How are you throwing “rocks in the pond” to try and start a ripple of transformation? Think about your I AM statement, does it include anything about impacting your sphere of influence? Think about any adjustment needed in this area of your life.

I do believe that one person can make huge impacts on the world. At the very least, one person can make a huge impact on the people around them. When an idea or movement is really good, people will join in and even if the person who started it isn't there anymore, others will want to take up the mantle and keep it going. I try to make a difference in the world through tiktok, the podcast, and the music I am working on. The danger of believing my impact is too small is discouraging myself from giving my full effort into it. If I don't really think people will listen or be impacted, why would I put so much time and effort into it? Being the first to make a change is difficult because you are alone. You are having to come up with the ideas yourself and that can be isolating and also less effective. We need other people to help us see what we cannot see and help us where we are weak. The value is that the change might not happen without you. Someone has to start the change. We can't all wait for someone to follow.

I feel like I am really investing in the why of my life and doing my best to give all I have to it. The hard part about making music is that it takes time and money. I won't be able to see the impact until the music is actually out. It's almost a waiting game at this point while I do all of the work that no one sees. Once the music is out, I will continue to make music, but I will also see the impact of the music I have already made. I feel like I am finally living into who I am

I'm going to have to adjust my "I AM" statement because a lot has changed for me since I started this journey.

I am educating myself on the difficulties of caring for children who have been displaced from their homes. I've also been writing more. I still struggle to actually post my writing but at least I'm writing again. I had serious writer's block for weeks.

I joined a couple of local Facebook groups for foster parents in the area. I'm glad I've decided to foster older children because I only saw one person who had placements of older children, and they were 11-12 years old. I honestly have never been one of those people who gushes over babies and toddlers. I like seeing kids at the stages of life when they are becoming more aware of themselves and the world around them. I enjoy guiding kids and young adults and I'm pretty good at it. I'm just in the waiting portion of the process, and it's frustrating. The class starts on September 2nd and I've done the paperwork already. Now I just wait, overthink about the details and tell myself every other day that I'm going to be rejected because of some random thing. Lol

But I need to write more and get to the point where I'm posting more! I'm writing it again because it's what is really bothering me lately.
