Start Local, Think Global! We hear this all the time, but how many people actually stand up and take action? My boyfriend DID?!?!?! He’s running for the upcoming city election and nominated ME to be his “Campaign Manager!” Woo-hoo, right? No, not exactly. I had no idea how much time or energy it would take to run a campaign, but we are doing it.

I never realized the importance of local elections or the value in being informed at the grassroots level, but if people had any idea how the decisions made by city management affected our lives, more people would get involved. It’s  a tough world and many of us are losing hope and faith in our leaders, which is why we need to stand up and take positive action. We may not be able to make a direct impact on the world, but we CAN make a difference in our own community.

Neither of us have any direct experience working in politics so we’re learning as we go and it’s been quite an education. Thomas is definitely not a “politician” and I’m certainly not a “politician’s wife,” but we are good people and we care about our community and everyone in it. The decision to run for local office was an individual choice, but we are a collective whole and we need to stand together and support one another in this endeavor to bring about positive change.

Taking on this kind of challenge requires all kinds of support and so I’m using my blog to reach out to fellow beings to support this incredible decision my man has made to Be the Change. Even if you’re not local or you don’t know us directly, we are still ONE and your support will absolutely make a difference. There are so many ways to accomplish this so don’t feel like you can’t. Become our fan on Facebook or send words of encouragement or donate or send positive thoughts or peaceful energy … something … anything. The power is behind the intention and collective intention is unprecedented!

I’m so proud of Thomas, as he’s a visionary and I know without a doubt he will serve his community well and he will not be swayed by the nonsense that goes on in politics. He’s taken on a lot and he has a lot of people who depend on him, but he keeps working hard because he knows he’s doing the right thing. Even under all the responsibilities and pressure, he doesn’t lose his cool nor does he seem to run out of patience. I see how selfless he is and how he still manages to find the time to bring me coffee or buy me flowers and I just want to support him in any way I can. I’m reaching out to my readers hoping they will pass this on to their friends so that we can come together collectively and share a little love!

Spread the word and help Be the Change!!!

Love, Light and SO much gratitude ~
