You Are The Change

Have you ever had the experiences


Where you saw whom you care about


Making the choices


Over and over again


That hurt themselves


That destroyed themselves


That dragged them down


That kept them stuck


You just wanted to


Help them get out of it


And no matter how hard you tried


You couldn’t get them to change


It frustrated you as hell, and


It dragged you down with them?


The truth is that


We can’t help people change


We can’t get them to change


We can’t convince them to change


When they don’t want to change


Any attempt to make them change


Would be controlling on our part


It would be expecting them to be


Who and what we think


They are supposed to be


It is disempowering to us all


It would get us all stuck


It is safe to let go of control


There is nothing wrong with you


For not being able to help them


It doesn’t define


Whether you are good enough or not


Allow you to be


Without making you wrong


For thinking you can’t help them


There is nothing wrong with them either


It is their own path


It is their own journey


It is their freedom to choose


For their own learning and growth


That is unique to them


Allow them to be


Hold space for them


Give them space


Give you space


Without judgments of them


Without making them wrong


For whatever choices they make


That is helping them and you


That is empowering them and you


Without the need to do anything


Without the need to change anything


Without the need to fix anything


You have done more than enough


You have done more than good enough


With just your being


Whether you believe it or not


That is true empowerment to you and others


That is total allowance of you and others


That would set us all free


It doesn’t matter


Others change or not


What matters is YOU


Keep being you


Keep choosing you


Keep trusting you


Keep appreciating you


Keep being the change


You desire to be


Keep being the light


You truly be


Keep going


With your light


Shining your path


Everywhere you go


Offer your gifts and talents to


Those who desire to change


Those who are ready to change


Those who are willing to change


Those who are ready to receive you


Those who need your light


Those who appreciate your light


Those who would love to


Enjoy the ride and journey with you


Those who are in alignment with you


They are your people


That you are meant to serve


As you are the powerful leader and creator


Of your own destiny


You got this. One step at a time.
