Powerlessness is an awful feeling. Unfortunately, it’s one that’s all too easy to succumb to in this day and age. The issues facing our world can feel insurmountable. We know we must stay aware, but that awareness can erode us if it’s left unchecked.
The antidote to powerlessness is action. When we become the change we want to see, we prove to ourselves just how powerful we really are. Everyone has the ability to make a difference. Here are some ways you, your loved one, and your community can rise to the challenge and create a better world.
Working with Children
Invest in the next generation, and invest in the future.
Fighting for Major Changes
You can make a difference for those who are struggling today.
Connecting and Caring for Nature
Working with nature is a great way to destress and make a difference at once:
Fighting for what you believe in isn’t easy, but it’s necessary. Without action, our grief does nothing but weigh us down. Counterintuitively, taking on the work lightens our load substantially. Transform yourself into a beacon of hope, and see how the world glows.
