Action. I absolutely love this word and what it stands for. It's one of my favorites in the English language. Where there is action, there is change and growth. When we take action, that's where real life happens and we experience it to its fullest.
I especially love seeing people take action that leads towards their goals and purpose. We can talk all we want about health, relationships and purpose but it's when, and only when, we take action that we move forward towards becoming God's Best Version.
When I was young I wanted to be a journalist. I went to Indiana University School of Journalism and dreamed of being the next Diane Sawyer or Christiane Amanpour. I wanted to be in the action and travel the world reporting on the stories of others. Life had another plan and that was not the path I was meant to take. Maybe one day I’ll get to travel and write about others even if it’s in my own private journal (which by the way is equally as fantastic - never discount anything you do in the name of your passion as small or insignificant.)
I recently came across an amazing site doing what I wanted to back when I was young. It’s called RYOT. They report on news stories all over the world and give you ways to take action on stories you respond to. A way to get educated and take action – sign me up! So check it out today www.ryot.com. I think you’ll love it too.
