Change chicago

Be a Change!

Wednesday, April 06, 2016 Jennifer Oquendo

Have you ever wanted to do something big and different but were unsure of yourself? It's as if you weren't sure if you can handle the assignment and second guess yourself. I've been in situations like that multiple times and I regret not pursuing that desire. We are all called to do something great in this world. We aren't here just to be here so we have to take advantage of the time we have on this Earth and pursue those BIG dreams of ours.

Yes it's going to take time, dedication and possibly sleepless nights but at the end of the day when
you have completed your goals and are on your way to your dreams then you will feel accomplished. If you are interested in business and have a knack for selling, why not help someone start a business? If you enjoy painting and drawing, why not sell your pieces? These are merely examples, but there's so much that we can do to bring a change to our communities.

It's unfortunate to have to turn on the news and hear about another shooting or violent act happening in our neighborhood. As Chicago increases in its violent acts, we can be a great change by influencing our communities to do positive things. We must encourage one another and help each other be lights to our neighbors, friends and those around us. When you release positivity, you will gain positivity. So, take time out of your busy schedule and encourage someone to take a leap towards a dream or desire they have. It doesn't matter how big or impossible it may seem. If you put your mind to something, then it becomes possible!
