Hmm… Hi ? My name is Victoria, and I want to change the world.
I can’t help thinking that, to be truly oneself, to share what’s really dear to one heart, could honestly look a lot like that in today’s world. Or at least there’s this fear that it’ll end up like that if we really begin to share what’s inside our heart- mostly if this perspective varies too much from what others deem ‘possible’ or ‘normal’. But you know what ? I firmly believe that there’s a part missing in theses three lines at the top … the part that mentions that even if some laugh about what you’re trying to do, there will Always be people, or at the very least someone, that will listen. What you just said might even make this person think, or make this person go like ‘hey, I want to help’. Someone might even says ‘hey, I have a piece of the puzzle you’re trying to create, maybe we can create it together’.
‘ Don’t ask me what the world needs. Ask what make you come alive and go do it. Because what the world need is people who have come alive” – H.Thurman
So let me start again.
Hi,I’m Victoria. I’m 18, and I want to change the world. What do I mean by ‘I want to change the world’ ? I mean that I want to bring positive changes. Since a child, I’ve always seem to see the world differently. Seems like what I thought of the world wasn’t such a common view. I think that the world is a beautiful place, and that we’re lucky to be here. I also think that a lot can be done to allow everyone to enjoy this experience as much as possible.
I tend to think that everyone have an unique piece of the puzzle to share, to bring to the Big puzzle ( we could call that Big Puzzle ‘ the future’ I guess, or ‘the world’). Imagine if everyone gave themselves permissions to be totally- truly – insanely – beautifully – their true self? We could paint the blank canva that is our future with so many more colors !
I think that in a way, maybe we are sometimes scared ( I think fear is a reallyyy big subject that influences us a lot in many ways) to be our true self. Because the world today seem to tell us to be like this , or that, and to stay ‘inside the box’. There’s this sort of fear that if we go out of the box, we’ll be alone, we won’t be supported. And I believe that humans aren’t meant to be alone. Even if the spark of change must come from inside, we aren’t meant to be alone. We are part of a whole; like any lives, we’re part of Nature. We can only survive as part of the whole, but we seems to have forgot that too… Unity… I think Unity is a very important part of building the bigger puzzle …
Here’s what I also think though; that, if you dare being yourself… you’ll attract to yourself like-minded people, people that share your vision, that share your beliefs and that will want to help you carry your puzzle piece ( yeah, that’s the person in the middle of the laughing crowd that looks you in the eyes in acknowledgement).
So here I am, being myself. Writing about my heart-truth.
I believe we only demonstrate something by example. So here I am. Maybe I want to show people that it’s possible to be their true self, to create what they want to create. I’ll surely fall, but I’ll get up, and I won’t fail. Because I think we can’t Fail if we follow our true heart’s desires. That if we really feel we need to do something and take steps in that direction, we can never Fail; because, what is failure ? Taking a step, even if it is the smallest one, in the direction of one’s goal, of what one’s want to create…for me this can never be considered failure.
