Be The Change You Want To See In The World!

How come we can write the best stories and make beautiful movies that make people dream and wish to have similar lives,  we make them escape reality and live in a world of dreams BUT we can’t just live the same way?
Why we can’t be “this guy from the movie that is loyal and loving”, why we can’t be “this devoted woman” and ‘this kind and honest person”? Why we can’t create beauty for real and make this world a better place instead of this pile of trash we live in nowadays?

I’m mentioning the good side of movies and stories because I’m sure nobody has a dream to be raped or to be poor or to be eaten by a shark right?

But we always say the sentences “Their life is like a movie” or “life is not a movie” but you are forgetting that people that are writing these stories are humans like you!
They are from earth not from another planet, they also have their fears and problems, and many times they have nothing from the stories they write but they can write them, therefore, they do exist, they can exist, they should exist! Moreover, they should exist more and more because we have too much misery and darkness already!

Be the change you want to see in this world, just start from yourself and stop waiting for others to do it for you!
Be this good friend, this loving husband, that loyal wife, that tender mother, be this person that decided to follow their passion and defy the world just to be happy!
Be the dreamer, be the successful, the hard worker, the ambitious, the cheerful, the loving, the caring, the HAPPY!

Just decide to be whatever you want to be and let it be!

You can’t keep complaining and nagging about the lack of light and the lack of love and care and happiness while you live in the darkness!

Light a candle instead of cursing the darkness, be the shining star in someone’s life instead of hiding behind the clouds of doubt, envy, hate and fear.

We are all waiting for each other’s and we’ll remain waiting, nothing will change, on the contrary, it’s becoming worse and worse every day!
More pain, more hate, more cheating, more abandoning, more careless attitude, more ignoring each other’s and more materialism, envy and greediness!

It’s weird that after the billions that have died and buried, people didn’t understand yet that we take nothing with us! Except the good memories and impacts we leave in people’s hearts and life! This is the only thing we take with us, I checked many tombs and believe me, we leave empty-handed and also naked! We will take nothing at all!

As humans, it’s the time we spend here, each moment we live happy is our only treasure and each moment we make someone else happy is our only treasure after we leave this world and while we’re here it’s surely a candle in this dark and cruel world because changing someone’s life for the best and making their life better is actually a brighten star, a shining light in a world full of rudeness and cruelty.

Just be this change, be this person you wish to have, be this person you dream to have, give the smile you wish to receive, give the attitude you wish to see, and maybe someday someone will do the same for you and you will find out that your dreams were so close to you, because they were always your reflection and your mirror, this reflection that you kept it dimmed for many many years and you wasted your time searching so far away for something that was always “within”.

Thank you for reading, your opinions and thoughts are always welcome 😊

  1. It is certainly a quote I love and believe. 💕✨😃 And you explained it so well!
    I don’t really believe in concept of countries and that’s why I am living in Cygnet… 💕✨ Thanks a lot for showing me I am not that wrong 😀

    • Thank you Sophie for your time to read and interact 😊 I don’t know what is Cygnet but let’s hope as John Lennon wanted « the world will be as one » they killed him for that!
      Appreciate your contribution 😊

  2. Be the change you want to see in the world!
    I wish the entire world could read this post!
    Why it is so difficult? You said it right! The stories of the movies are written by human beings, why we cannot make the movies our daily reality? It is only depending on us! It is our choice! Instead of being this good friend, loving husband or loyal wife, a tender mother, we chose to stay in our comfort zone and keep complaining that nobody is doing anything…😒 How can the world change?
    My aim will always be to be this light in my life and be happy!
    Now, a curiosity 🧐 you’ve checked many tombs? 🧐🧐🙈🙈🙈
    Wonderful words my dear, as always 🤗🤗
    I really wish everyone could read it and practice it! Than we will have a change and the world we want, the world from our movies 😉🤗
    🤗🤗🤗🧸🧸🧸🧸💕💕💕💕🤗🤗🤗🤗🧸🧸🧸🧸💕💕💕💕

    • Thank you dear Riby for this lovely interaction and words 😊😊💕
      First to answer your questions, yes been to many funerals and saw many tombs, christians mostly bury in drawers (with clothes) Muslim bury in earth directly and only blank sheet is covering the body
      Now to be back 😊
      I wish people can start today too with applying this! As you said how can the world change if nobody wants to do anything 😕
      Glad you decided to be this light and I’m sure you’re doing a great job 😊💕
      Hope Friday will be great and yayyy the weekend 😁😁😁
      Appreciate your time and contribution as always 🤗🤗🤗🧸🧸🧸💕💕💕💕 🥂🍻🍺🍸

      • Oh my…why have I asked? I have received a too detailed answer…😕…not things that I want to know or to think about it 😕
        But yes, the idea was that we definitely not take anything with us when that moment happens 😕
        I hope more and more people will start to realize it and start being that light too! At least in their life 🙂
        Yayyy! Almost weekend 🙂
        Have a wonderful day my dear 🤗🤗🤗🧸🧸🧸💕💕💕💕 🥂🍸

      • you asked ME 😀 you should have known! haha never mind never mind you will live forever 😊😊
        Almost weekend! So think what you’re going to eat and drink only for now since your day is almost over 🤗🤗🤗🧸🧸🧸💕💕💕💕

      • Yes, yes, I know and I have expected such an answer 😀 only that I guess it was too early to absorb it 🙂
        I will live forever so no problems for me 😀😀
        Oh yes, eating and drinking…hmmm don’t know for now but definitely will be something delicious 😀😀
        🤗🤗🤗🧸🧸🧸💕💕💕💕

      • Hahhaha ok ok no such subject now 😊
        Enjoy the weekend my dear and I’m sure it will be something delicious 😋 🤗🤗🤗💕💕🧸🧸🧸🥂🥂🍺🍺

  3. We can make some one else happy that is our greatest treasure, you said right there is so many bad things affecting the world! 🙂Yes, Huguette at present world has changed into a bad situation! 🤔
    Everyone should lighten their life with peace and happiness! 💙
    Thank you for this amazing post!😊
    Have a blessed day my friend!🙏

    • Thank you dear for this lovely interaction 😊
      Yes unfortunately the world is not getting any better so each person needs to start from themselves 👍
      Glad you loved the post and appreciate your time and words 😊💕💕 have a blessed day as well 🙏🏻

  4. Hi Huguette! Such a powerful topic to start the content with. People live in a dream and these dreams are coming out as movies or dramas. It’s the longing feel and thoughts that we watch or read. We need such people to hide the darkness. Wonderful points and beautiful quotes to make the content more bold.People are in enough darkness they should start lighting up with hard work dedication and success. Wow the quotes are brilliant and powerful. We always wait for someone to show how its done. Let us be the one and show the world. ✨Be the change✨

    • Thank you dear Simon for this addition and for the appreciation 🙏🏻😊 you certainly are one of the few people that decided to be the change and it’s a great thing 👍
      Appreciate your time and contribution so much 😊

  5. This is really interesting 💙💙. The person writing the stories is indeed just like us. A weirdly unique a thought. Thanks for sharing 💙💙

  6. I would agree 💯% with Ribana! Every one should work hard to make their own life in a comfort zone!😊
    Governments people and we should aware to make a peaceful atmosphere in our country! 😇
    That all are depends on National and International business! 🤔
    Thank you my dear friend for this amazing post! 💕

    • This is so true! The problem is that most governments are corrupted and the people are electing the wrong leaders in many places in the world! And there are some big games that are bigger than small countries (like ours for an example) we always apply international schemes and conspiracies
      Appreciate your kind words and support dear Suni 😊💕

  7. Yes Huguette, absolutely true. There is no other way.
    Be the change you want to see in the world. This was said by Mahatma Gandhi and I believe in it 💯 percent

  8. Wow!! This quote I really believe in..
    This quote is said by Mahatma Gandhi and you know a story is behind this…
    Well, one fine day a mother along with his 6 years old son came to Mahatma Gandhi. She said that my son eats a lot of sugar, I am fed up with him. Kindly explain him. Mahatma Gandhi said nothing to the boy and tell the woman to come next week.
    Again next week she came and Gandhi explained the boy. The woman curiously asked that why you didn’t give this lesson previous week. He simply replied that till last week I too was taking a lot of sugar. How can I tell this to your son if I too was doing the same thing? How can I expect this change in this boy when I haven’t changed?
    Well you must not expecting such a long comment.
    Your words are beautiful Huguette ❤️ change only begin with ourselves. The person writing stories is just like us. A meaningful thought. I truly agree with you!!
    Have a great day 🤗💕

    • Thank you so much for sharing this story behind the quote 😊 maybe I read it once but honestly I can’t remember it so thank you for sharing 🙏🏻😊 I wish we can all be like Gandhi actually 😊
      There’s no long comment, you say what is needed to be said regardless the length 😊
      Happy you loved the post and appreciate your time to read and interact with such valuable contribution 🙏🏻😊💕💕

  9. It’s so true. So tragic that what people love most exist in fiction. Why is it so difficult? Well probably because we lack of everything to make it work. But the most tragic part is that the one who wrote and direct those films are probably ones with most miserable life.
    After reading this post Micheal Jackson’s voice singing:
    “I’m starting with the man in the mirror
    I’m asking him to change his ways
    And no message could have been any clearer
    If you want to make the world a better place
    Take a look at yourself, and then make a change”
    It’s so fitting for this post 🙂

    • Ohhhh look who’s backk 😁 welcome back Jess! Ma fi mar7aba?? As we say in Arabic « no hello? » haha
      Hope your vacation was great and thank you for reading and interacting with as usually 😊
      We lack of everything is what shouldn’t exist actually and yes probably the writers are miserable but if they can realize these movies and stories, then they can be reality, this is my point
      Saw a quote for Michael Jackson from this song and you’re right it fits perfectly 👍 thank you for sharing 😊💕

      • Um… hello? haha 😄 I feel so at home here I don’t even notice that I haven’t say it yet. 😄
        I’m still in Norway, in the middle of nowhere. No phone signal but nature all the entertainment. It’s raining a lot the last days.
        Yes, if these movie writers can write it they should be able to realize it too.
        I had MJ marathon because of this song’s quote haha 😀

      • At home you don’t say hello ?? 🤔🤔😂😂😂
        You still in Norway? In the middle of nowhere!! And it’s raining 😕😕 not so cool except being in nature and Norway
        Hope you are enjoying anyway 😊
        What is MJ marathon anyway 🤔

      • Yes, your blog is like a second home to me! 😂
        Yes, the constant rains annoy me. But sometimes if fun to watch from inside 🙂
        Micheal Jackson marathon is when I watch one of his music videos after each other in probably more than an hour. 😂

      • Oh damn hahhaa I loved most of Micheal Jackson songs but I didn’t like his insecurities , oh well
        My blog is a second home 😌 how lovely is that to hear 😊 but still you say hello when you step here 😂😂

      • We both feel the same. But given his abusive past I kind of understand, still it would have been better if he overcome those obstacles. The man had a genius talents.
        Ok. Ok. I’ll say hello next time I step in hehe 😁

      • Not judging him at all I just love the people who are strong and love themselves the way they are…especially that he was a genius!
        Okay I will see next time 😁

  10. This is really amazing dear Koko. I meant the concept of ‘Be the change you want to see in the world’. ❤️💚💝Yes, each one have different views on this world just because this world is the simple reflection of their own attitude and mentality. Writers makes work not only from their personal experience but from what they see, hear, feel etc. And of course those people are not aliens.😄😄This is a great boost to creative people and their vast world of sublimity. Well said Koko. Loved this work a lot.💖🥰😍👍👍

    • Thank you dear Tushara for these kind and lovely words 😊 yes exactly those people are not aliens 👽 we are becoming aliens actually 😌
      So glad you loved it and appreciate your interaction a lot 😊😊💕💕

  11. Very wonderful message. That’s why I admire your content. You always push us to be a better version of ourselves.

    I am very happy working as a nurse, yes my job is to provide care – but at the same time I have the option to give a subpar quality of care or an exceptional care. When I’m at work, they always tell me I need to take it easy or I am over reacting etc. They even judge my character. I know when to take it easy, or when to focus, but there’s one thing that I always think about when I’m at work – what if that patient is my mom or my dad or my husband? How will I take care of them? And that’s how I think I can make a difference. 🙂 🙂

    I always wanted to be the change – atleast to clean our bedroom and my husband’s office. We are messy lately. lol

    • Thank you AL 😊 again I do appreciate your time and kind words and as well!
      Happy I can inspire with my words and thank you for sharing your experience as well and I believe you know yourself better than anyone and how you should act and when
      It’s great to treat your patients as if they were your parents! Such noble and great 👍
      Oh yes sometimes we need to clean that room and make that bed so badly 😁😁

  12. Well isn’t this intensely motivating!

    Change is so hard, but so necessary. You have to open up every hurt, every scar. You have to admit every lie, every cheat. It’s so hurtful, but it’s healing at the same time. Change is scary, but are horror movies for?? To tell you there are scary things, but they’re mainly a figment of your imagination. They’re shadows, so look into the light instead of them.

    • Thank you Nour for this valuable interaction 😊🙏🏻 loved the addition you made and the horror movies example, so poignant and so powerful 👍 we really need to stop the lies and face the truth

  13. This is excellent… A well articulated post… Many people have the tendency of being judgmental in every aspect which is often found… Most people indulge in providing their suggestion and criticising the existing scenarios but doesn’t have the courage to take the initiative. Change is inevitable and adopting to change should be welcomed.
    All the quotes are worth and provide meaningful insights… Well written… A must read for everyone… 🙂 🙂

  14. “Be the change you want to see in this world, just start from yourself and stop waiting for others to do it for you! “

    Spot on! I love this proactive approach. After all, we always have a choice! Thanks so much, dear Huguette…… you are LOVELY INSPIRATION! 💕🌷💕🌷💕🌷💕🌷💕🌷

  15. Hi Huguette from the cold Canadian stranger! This is a fantastic post Huguette and you have it absolutely right. No one wants to be first, they just sit and wait for someone else to start. Or if they see one or two people trying they will still say, won’t do anything to change. But it can happen if we want it to happen, but we need to start with ourselves. I guess not too many people want to do that. People watch the movies and wish that would be real life and they don’t realize it can be real life, we just need to make it that way. It isn’t going to magically happen all by itself. We need to do it and then it will happen. You have some great thoughts there Huguette and great quotes as usual. Enjoy your day!!😃😺🌞

    • Thank you Steve 🙂 “Cold Canadian Stranger” can you make it any colder? 😂
      Glad you loved the post and I really meant every word, wish people will know that they can always be this change, starting now and concerning everything!
      Movies are really a very small part from real life and they are from real life or from someone’s imagination, means it can happen!
      Hopefully many people will decide to start and be the good and lovely change, to be the light..
      Appreciate your time and thoughts added to my post and hope you’ll be having a great a warm day 😺🌞

      • Yes, it definitely can happen. We just need to decide to make it happen and what a change there would be in this old world!😀 My day has been great, though a bit chilly, but okay with a jacket!🌞 Hope you have a great day tomorrow!😃😺

      • Let’s always hope for the best and do these baby steps ourselves 🙂
        Have a great Wednesday and hope it’s a bit warmer today 🌞🌞😸

      • That’s right.😃
        Supposed to be cooler today, and it sure is starting that way. High of 18 today. But it is fall, time to expect these temps.🥶🙄
        Enjoy your day!😃😺🌞

  16. Hi Huguette, how r u? It’s a long time since I logged into wordpress. I have been super busy with many things. Still not free completely. Did not write anything and couldn’t read that much even. Will be on and off like this until sometime probabaly. You know that’s how a physician’s life is. Never ending studies/ work/ family commitments and the list goes on and on. Sorry for not interacting. 🙂

    • Hello Deepa and happy to see you here 😊 I’m good thank you, hope you are good as well 😊Yes I noticed you are away and I can understand of course, hope things went well in your life 😊 And I can only imagine a physician’s life actually! I can’t pretend to know since I always sucked in Math and Physics haha 😀
      But happy to see your message despite your busy life, it means a lot that you stopped by and hope to stay in touch anyway 🙂 I might also leave the blogging world, still a bit not sure about it
      Have a great time and appreciate the lovely message 😊

      • How could I forget you after logging into the word press? Missed you and your works. Was really so busy. Nice to see all those smileys. 🙂

      • So kind of you to say so 😊 missed your heavy writings as well and I will check your latest post the soonest 😊😊
        Hope it will get less busy and we’ll see you here more 😊
