Difference Makers International, is a truly inspiring project and website. I am telling you about it today, because I just discovered it and was really pleased! I spent my childhood trying to make everyone happy, because I wanted happy, loving and appreciative people around me. It was a never ending battle so to speak. I have realized over time that I am the only one that can change myself and I cannot change others. However, I can be an example of love, joy and happiness. I can appreciate the people around me and uplift and empower them. I can;t control if they decide to be happy, but I know that what I do is from a loving and empowering space, and not from a critical and judgmental space, like I lived in. I get to live my dream of making a happier more loving world through teaching and coaching and showing people their beauty, value and power.
