“To inspire is to be inspired. To motivate is to be motivated. To encourage is to be encouraged. To influence is to be influenced, to educate is to want to make a difference and impact generations.” – Author: Natalee A. Johnson
Change Starts With Us
P4D believes in building stronger communities. Change starts by planting a seed.
“To live for change is to reflect daily on what needs to be altered in ones life. It is dissect my life under a microscope and ask: Where/What can I improve? What is my Why? It is to look in the mirror and not turn away from the flaws I see, instead, embrace, self-correct, grow and develop. It is to know challenges will come, and when they do, I must try to overcome these challenges, and sometimes that means asking for help. To live for change, is to be a critical thinker and problem-solver and ask myself the questions: What Legacy will I leave behind? What impact will I have on others? What steps will I take forward? To reflect and live for change is to continuously assess, readdress and accept, there is always opportunities for growth. To live for change, is to make a difference in the life of others and value each individual for who they are.” – © Natalee A. Johnson (2016)
Dreams are the seeds of change. Nothing ever grows without a seed, and nothing ever changes without a dream. – Debby Boone
