“How wonderful it is that nobody need to wait

a single moment

before starting to improve the world”

Anne Frank


There is no need to wait.

No need to wait another moment. No need to hesitate. To second guess your purpose in life. The time is here to begin making the world a better place.

But what is this world?

Our world can be a very abstract and limiting intellectual illusion. Something to argue over. Something to fight over. An ideal to kill for. Or it can be simple and real. Something that brings us together. Unites us. Something that embraces our frailty and brings life.

Your world is different than mine.

Your world includes people I cannot reach.

I can never reach them, but you can.

Today, you can give them hope. You can bring them life. Tell them that you believe in them. Forgive them. Offer them assistance. Encourage them. Behold their vulnerable loneliness. Cry over their pitiful mistakes.

Today, you can laugh with them. Have faith in them. Love them, for who they are and for who they long to be. You can make them smile. Walk with them. Speak to them. Listen to them. Withhold judgement. Improve their life, by improving their world.

How truly wonderful that we need not wait.

How wonderful to behold the wisdom of a teenage mind in captivity.

We make things a lot more complicated than they should be.

Embrace today.

Improve the world around you.

Begin with yourself.
