Lately, I’ve been in many conversations talking about “grassroots” efforts. What is this about? I see two components to this. One is about a sense of connection and being part of something. The other is very individualized and about standing in ones truth. These collective and individual components mold together and create grassroots movements. It’s about understanding what’s most important to you and an ability to walk your talk along with others. Creating shifts in our actions as a community and as a world, begins with individuals. It’s a determination. It’s a decision and choice in the truth you want to live and not waiting on someone else to do that for you.
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, American cultural anthropologist
Truth is power and it resides within each person. Understanding it and doing something with it is up to you. If you want to stand in your truth and be part of a grassroots movement, see if you answer “Yes” to each of the following questions:
Can you speak openly and honestly with your friends about your beliefs in life?
Do you seek out and surround yourself by people who stretch you?
Do you feel like you’re an important part of something?
