I think every person is meant to affect the world in some way, and it starts with being stripped of all the materialistic distractions blocking us from our full potential. Personally, I had to realize what my passion in life was; which is writing. Once I discovered that, I had to develop the dying thirst to become better at it whenever the opportunity presents itself. Lastly, I had to accept that somebody somewhere will always have it worse than me. Just by being born in America, I am incredibly blessed and fortunate beyond measure. If I have a roof over my head and something to eat, I can write. And if I can write, I will have my part in shifting the Earth’s axis.
