Making a Difference

Hey Guys,

Something that has been on my mind lately has been making a difference in peoples lives and also changing this world in which I live in. I wrote in my goals for 2011 (can see them in the pages above) that I wanted to change one persons life. I am a dreamer. I always like to envision myself making an impact in people's lives. But one can always dream but it is making a change day to day not only in other people's lives but in your life. I am critical of myself and feel like I am not doing enough to be a support and help to the people around me. I like to believe that everyone in some way wants to help other people and help them grow in their life too. So I have been thinking to myself now that all my major papers are done and everything else is finishing up. I have been thinking am I doing enough to positively impact the people close to me, the people around me and the people I have yet to meet?

First the people closest to us is the hardest thing because you always seem to forget about them, or maybe that is just me. The people I generally over look the most is my parents and my sister because they have always been there. I often over look how I am actually treating them and the impact I am having on them. It is a weird concept to think about but have you ever thought what impact am I having on my parents? My mom has been talking to me more and more recently and I am realizing I worry about my actions to everyone else except my parents. Difficult thing for me to wrap my head around.

Second is the people around me, this includes no only my friends but also the people I run into on a regular occurrence. What impact am I having on them? Am I someone who is uplifting and a positive impact or am I taking away from them? Ha it is not even Sunday and I am being reflective. I know for a fact that I have not been the greatest this entire semester and there is no excuse for that. I am trying more and more each day to not make excuses for my actions and taking responsibility (reference I am my own worse enemy in alot of ways that I push myself to know end to always try and do more. But one should always look back and examine what impact are they having on the people around them? 

Lastly, the people am I going to meet. Am I have enough impact to be and influence on people I do not know yet? Something that I have been talking a lot about lately has been living your life above reproach which basically means living a life beyond judgement. And I guess that is my question for you, are you living your life above reproach? I am trying but like most things it takes time and I am working on it as much as I can.

I do not know if I am doing enough, but I am going to continue to try to make a impact everyday. Starting with the people closest and then moving on from there.

Goodbye for now,
Christian Sawka

By the way would love it if you followed on Blogspot, liked on Facebook, share this and above all comment I would love to hear what you guys think.


  1. Wonderful posts! Making a difference is the hardest I think but the most fulfilling task to do.

  2. Making a difference can also mean just being there in the moments, but being in the moments 100%. Thats when I see people actually connecting and making a difference in others lives.
    Keep up the good work of finding out and learning who you want to be.
