Man in the Mirror

Sometimes we need a little motivation and inspiration to do good deeds in life. We all have the ability inside of us to make a difference in someone’s life and sometimes it can be as simple as giving someone a genuine smile, or a small compliment. Maybe you made their day just a little better. We live in a place that doesn’t always consist of laughter and happiness. It can be gloomy and dark. Nobody has it easy, but together, one by one, a lot can be accomplished. Seldom can people accomplish their goals without someone there to support, guide, and love them. If you want to see a change in the world, then you have to be the person who initiates it. Everything small done, can lead to something big.

This is one of my favorite songs by Michael Jackson that reminds me everyday of a better person I can be to make a change in the world. It starts with you: The man (or the woman :P) in the mirror!

                                                                “Man In The Mirror”

I’m Gonna Make A Change,
For Once In My Life
It’s Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .

As I, Turn Up The Collar On My
Favorite Winter Coat
This Wind Is Blowin’ My Mind
I See The Kids In The Street,
With Not Enough To Eat
Who Am I, To Be Blind?
Pretending Not To See
Their Needs
A Summer’s Disregard,
A Broken Bottle Top
And A One Man’s Soul
They Follow Each Other On
The Wind Ya’ Know
‘Cause They Got Nowhere
To Go
That’s Why I Want You To
Know

I’m Starting With The Man In
The Mirror
I’m Asking Him To Change
His Ways
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
(If You Wanna Make The
World A Better Place)
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change
(Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change)

I’ve Been A Victim Of A Selfish
Kind Of Love
It’s Time That I Realize
That There Are Some With No
Home, Not A Nickel To Loan
Could It Be Really Me,
Pretending That They’re Not
Alone?

A Willow Deeply Scarred,
Somebody’s Broken Heart
And A Washed-Out Dream
(Washed-Out Dream)
They Follow The Pattern Of
The Wind, Ya’ See
Cause They Got No Place
To Be
That’s Why I’m Starting With
Me
