You CAN Be The Change You Want To See


“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, It is the only thing that ever has.”  ~Margaret Mead

How can we be a part of the change that we would like to see in the world?  How can each one of us help the world to be more loving, more compassionate, and more alive?  As individuals, can we have an impact on the whole world?  Yes.  Let me give you a few examples.

Tony Scruggs is an ex professional athlete who is now teaching Nonviolent Communication.  He is one individual making change in the world by offering us all a new way to connect and interact with one another.  He is making change happen in the world.  One tweet, one video, one radio show at a time, he asks us:  How are we BEING in the world?  How are we showing up for ourselves and others.  How can we communicate in compassionate and loving ways.  Tony has taught me a lot about completely compassionate communication.  And that reaches out to the way I communicate with the entire world.  Tony is changing the world.  You can find him at:

Dr. John Reed is changing the way people view one another.  He wrote a fascinating book about his experiences of being bi-racial.  It is an open, beautifully vulnerable, yet strong look at his own life.  He invites us all to look at how racial issues have affected our own lives.  He also gives us a good view of the history of racial issues and laws.  It is an amazing book that offers all of us a look into our own judgments and perceptions of history, one another and ourselves.  Dr. Reed is a wonderful example of light and love and I have benefitted so much from his generosity of spirit.  You can find him at:

Shayne Traviss is a big wave in the ocean of love.  He is pure, undefinable beauty.  He produces, happily working tirelessly to bring us all fresh inspiration daily.  He is vibrating love all over the world wide web with incredible radio programming also.  Shayne is love in action.  I am inspired daily – hourly even – by Shayne’s commitment to the work of bringing light and love to all of us.  I do not have space here to fully explain the brilliance that is Shayne.  You can clearly see it on his website and in his radio programming though.  And I encourage you to check out the difference Shayne makes in the world every single day.

Kyle Paterson works with Shayne to make a difference and I could not mention Shayne without also including Kyle.  Kyle is definitely making his difference in the world.  He is an amazing person and I am honored to call him my friend.  I am inspired by Kyle all the time.  Kyle invites me to explore new ideas and supports everyone in super loving and compassionate ways.  He is at making his difference in the world.

Now these are just a very few examples.  I could give you so many more.  When you look for love, you find it.  When you look for inspiration, you will find it.  When you dedicate yourself to making a change in the world, others who are also dedicated will find you – and you will find us.  Each of these individuals work daily toward making the world a more loving place.  Each person here is being the change they want to see.  You can too.

Start where you are. Start by being kind to those who live in your home.  Start by sharing smiles and good energy with all the people you come across today.  Start by looking at how you can infuse more love into your world.  Every single loving action you put out into the world makes up the change that we all would love to see.  Yes, you can be the change you want to see.  And together we can make a huge difference.

  1. Thank you for sharing such inspiring thoughts and inspiring people with us, Dyan! It is indeed a privilege to be connected with these special folk via social media.
    It all starts with the individual. Me. One small step forward at a time, one day at a time, and the ripples flow outward to touch others’ lives


  2. Good advice…great post, Dyan! Evil delights when good men do nothing. We must “act” in order to help “enact.” Continued success to you!



I love to hear from you!
