I know I don’t usually post on a Thursday but it’s raining outside and I’m procrastinating. I should be doing something very important I’m sure, but I can’t remember what it is!
This question was my choice in a recent blogging group chat with friends. We each have a turn of leading the discussion with a question of our choice. We’ve had some beauties over the months we’ve been getting together – online rather than in person of course.
I was surprised, but shouldn’t have been, at the diverse responses – from giving teachers, scientists, nurses, doctors the same payment and ‘value’ as ‘celebrities’ and sportspeople (effectively swapping their status) to making a Tardis-like machine available for quick time travel anywhere in the world (Dr Who fan?). Also an end to cruelty in all forms, making people be kind to each other.
One of my good friends, Sue, mentioned her answer to this question in her monthly catch up post Let’s have a coffee catch up for September and I loved her way of turning the question into how we all need to be the change we want to see in the world.
Today is my youngest daughter’s 3rd wedding anniversary and a lot has happened in their three years of married life. They’ve actually been together for 10 years so they’ve done some of the hard yards already. I wish them all the happiness in the world.
I would love to change the world by having everyone as happy as we were back then 🙂
As I said in a facebook post today ‘A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year.
Ain’t that the truth???
If I’m honest, I’m happy and kinda sad looking back at the photos and memories. Happy that it was such a fabulous destination wedding and the fact that they’ve had a baby boy this year but kinda sad that we can’t get together as easily as we could back then, we can’t even think about when we can travel like that again!
In the meantime enjoy this square photo of a stunning sunset in Fiji.
Becky’s squares theme this month is all about the word ‘kind‘ and so this is my challenge to you – kindle your imagination, inspire us with your thoughts and share how you would change the world!
I’ve managed to sprinkle the word kind throughout my post today without too much trouble and I’m happy about that!
What would you do if you could rule the world – even if it’s only for one day?
I’d love to hear from you!
