I read a beautiful quote today from a fellow Zumba instructor that resonated deeply and inspired me to write this post.
“Even the tiniest of things can change a life. A smile, a wink, a hand gesture, a comment, a word, a single glance… we are powerful individuals and we have the choice and power to change lives” - Steve Boedt.
This is powerful. So powerful, if you really think about it. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do, or where you sit in the ‘hierarchy’ of society - you have the power to influence change, be that positive or negative, and be a leader in your community.
I realise this when I teach during my classes. How much of a difference the tiniest details can make to the day of someone else. I had a student just this week say that they instantly felt uplifted during the class when they saw me smiling back at them.
I truly believe that if more of us could recognise the power we hold as individuals to inspire positive change around us in our daily lives - even if it’s just one person that we impact - we could help make this world a better place.
Much love and positive energy,
