When I grow up

I have been feeling very inspired recently, and so in the coming weeks be prepared for 3 inspirational/inspired posts! This week's post was inspired by life in general I guess, and it follows on from three of my previous posts; take a risk, take a chance, make a change, if you want to make the world a better place and now I'm free falling.

What do you want to be when you grow up? What do you want to do?
My immediate answer is that I don't know. But I have now realised that is not true. I do.

When I grow up, I want to fight injustice. I want to challenge prejudice. I want to change the world.
I want for there to be equal rights for all people, across the globe, whether gay or straight, black or white, man or woman. Everyone. And I want to help this happen.
I want to stop to wars and keep the peace. I want people to be paid fairly for their work. I want to help fight poverty.
I want to help educate the world, so we can understand how we are affecting our planet, and how we can improve.

I don't know how I am going to do this; by being a teacher, a writer, a doctor, a blogger, an activist, an artist (in the broadest sense of the word because I can't draw), a fair trade worker. All I know is that when I grow up I want to help change our world. Does that answer your question?

With each post I'm also going to add a song that I feel matches the writing!

  1. Very nice post Emma and great song choice as well - I haven't heard that one in a loooong time!

    1. Thank-you! I only recently rediscovered the song as well! :)

  2. I'm the same Emma, I want to change the world for the good through words, writing, blogging or books. Just keep on trucking! Hope your exams went well xx


    1. Thanks! My exams are going ok, not halfway through yet unfortunately!
      We'll change the world from little old New Zealand. :)

  3. Great inspirational post! I feel that positive thinking can only lead to greater things so positive actions must lead to something monumental!

    Oh Hey Kayspray! xx

    1. Exactly! What a great way of thinking about it!


Thank-you very much for commenting, you just brightened my day. <3
