Game Changer for the Planet?

Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could do something simple like change your attitude for a weekend and it might change the world we live in for the better?

Of course, there’s a long list of things we can be doing to improve our world, but what about three whole days of no blame? Meaning, for three days we won’t find fault in anyone, including ourselves. Because, really, does it actually matter whose fault something is? If everyone is willing to fix the problem, then what does it matter how it happened? This weekend is all about putting our energies into fixing and finding solutions as opposed to blaming and finding fault.

I like this notion. I like to think that a change in my attitude for a few days could really encourage others to change theirs. Why not? Worth a try? The least it can do is give me perspective, which never hurt anyone, that’s for sure!

    I am in with you , Megan! It seems like we are rapidly becoming a nation split on how to accomplish anything. Besides not assigning blame, I also believe we have to be willing to listen and compromise. If we don’t listen and compromise, then we continue to assign blame for the problems be they at home, community, nation or world. It is a vicious circle of blame game with no resolution. Perhaps you are right, that one solution might be to start small and just change one’s attitude for a few days and encourage others to do likewise. It is worth a try!

    Besides being a farmgirl at heart, I am also a follower of the prophet, Baha’u’llah. There is a verse He wrote which I say whenever I start to get upset with anyone. It goes…..”O Son of Being! How couldst thou forget thine own faults and busy thyself with the faults of others? Whoso doest this is accursed of Me.” This helps keep me on track! Grins, Becka
