With each light that I pass under as I drive home I ask myself how I want to impact the world around me. Now this may seem like an odd question especially one as I'm driving home from my girlfriend's. You probably think why not ask yourself about what you want to eat when you get home or something that has to do with today. But I don't want to think about today. I want to think about tomorrow or the day after that. I want to make an impact on the world by my actions today.
In fact some would say I am making an impact right now. As your eyes scroll across the screen I'm making you consciously think about what you are reading.
It's odd that someone can have that much of an effect on one's mind without even talking to them once in person. I firmly believe in the butterfly effect. For those of you who don't know what that is basically it says that even a butterfly can have a huge impact on how the world plays out. Something small that might seem insignificant can have a huge impact on the world.
Growing up we all want to change the world. For me I wanted to be an astronaut and travel to different planets but as time passes I think we lose that hope based on people telling us what we can and can not do. But in reality we are all capable of amazing things. The human spirit can only be stopped by what we choose to believe in and what we choose to believe. If you want something then you can do it. You can go out there and get it. No matter who is against you as long as you fight for your dream I believe that we all can succeed and be the impact that we want to see in the world.
