Choosing to BE the Change I Hope to See
Love. This. ? Perhaps the most influential impact we can make on the world is changing US… becoming who God made us to be.
I’m deep diving into the gritty work of discovering the greatest opportunity for influence is right here, where I am today. If I can’t lead & love myself & those around me well, what kind of influence do I really have? It’s glamorous & sexy to think “when I get there” or “when I have that many followers” or “when I publish the book” or “when I speak on that stage”… but the truth is changing the world isn’t sexy or popular. Changing the world is changing ME every, single day. And that’s hard, consistent work.
The men & women of history who made the most lasting mark weren’t popular, well known or had the largest Instagram following (ahem, there wasn’t even social media!). They made a lasting mark because they ran after BEING who God made them to be unashamedly, unapologetically, unwaveringly.
This is change.
This is influence.
This is impact.
This is who I want to be—a warrior giving today & the people around her everything she’s got, committed to running her race well, failing & learning & getting back up, & introducing people to Jesus. This is the kind of legacy I want to leave behind. This is the Emily I want to be. ??
Warrior friend, change starts here. In us. Drop a ❤️ if you’re committed to BEING the change in the world around you.
