The Year of Making A Difference!

Every breath, every heartbeat, brings with it the promise of a new start,
a new day, a new opportunity to make a difference in your life or in the life of someone else!  Don't wait for something to happen to make things better,
step up and make it happen on your own!  You control your own destiny,
and have the opportunity to influence someone else's destiny for the better!

Jace Carlton


There are many ways people make a difference in someone's life.
It can be something as simple and easy to do as smile at a stranger.
Does a mother with children need a little help while standing in line at the grocery store?  How about someone who's ill or recently been injured
and can't get to the store for food or some other needs?

Whether we do something on our own, with a few friends, or participate
in a community activity, anything and everything makes a difference.
Reach out and touch someone else's life!

Have you been the recipient of someone's random act of kindness?
How did it make you feel?

We challenge you to look for ways to Make A Difference!
Opportunities abound for each of us every day,
if we'll just look for them!

Write to us and share your stories that ultimately will inspire others!
Just by doing that you're
Making A Difference!

Share your story!

Your Story Can be Right Here!

Change Your Stars! has made the year 2008
The Year of Making A Difference!

Everyone loves to read stories of someone whose made a difference in someone else's life!  They're uplifting, inspirational, and make us want to turn around and do something good for someone else.  Please tell us about someone who's made a difference in your life, or if you've been a part of making a difference in someone else's life don't be bashful ... tell us about it!  We can keep it anonymous if you prefer.

Together we can make this world a better place ... one thoughtful and caring act of kindness after another!

Thanks! - Jace

Stop thinking this is all there is...
Realize that for every ongoing war and religious outrage and environmental devastation, there are a thousand counter-balancing acts of staggering generosity and humanity and art and beauty happening all over the world, right now, on a breathtaking scale, from flower box to cathedral.
Resist the temptation to drown in fatalism, to shake your head and sigh and just throw in the karmic towel.
Realize that this is the perfect moment to change the energy of the world, to step right up and crank your personal volume; right when it all seems dark and bitter and offensive and acrimonious and conflicted and bilious... there's your opening!
And, finally, believe you are part of a groundswell, a resistance, a seemingly small but actually very, very large impending karmic overhaul, a great shift, the beginning of something important and potent and unstoppable.

Acts of Kindness
When you carry out acts of kindness you get a wonderful feeling inside.
It is as though something inside your body responds and says,
"Yes, this is how I ought to feel!"
