I wanted to change the world

Old man hands

When I was a young boy, I wanted to change the world.

I found it was too difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my country.

When I found I couldn’t change the country, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.

Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the country and I could indeed have changed the world.
