Any group, community, or system we join will have problems.
When humans are involved, nothing is perfect.
After a while those issues rise to the surface.
Why did I join this group?
How come they do things this way?
It makes no sense to me!
We can start to question everything.
When we focus on all of those "problems" we may miss a real opportunity.
It is the opportunity for us to make a difference.
To voice our opinion and perspective.
For there is a reason why we were attracted to the group to begin with.
We saw something special or appealing to us.
That is something we should not let go to waste.
Why not put some effort in to move it in a better direction?
Perhaps that is why we were called to there in the first place.
Maybe we can take what we see and use it as a learning experience.
To learn to do better.
Or it might be a calling to start our own group.
To build something ourselves that is better than what exists.
And to be better in that situation.
It can be a chance for a new start.
And we can take what we have experienced and seen and use it to create something even better.
Are you upset at how things are?
If we are involved then there is an opportunity specifically for us.
It could be about having our voice heard.
Or it could be about creating something new.
That is for us to decide for ourselves.
Do you find yourself complaining about a certain situation?
Now go and do something about it!
