MAC stand for Make A Change. It's something I think about often. I wonder, how can I change something within me to have a more organized home? Or, how can I define my goals better so I go after exactly what I want? Or, how can I manage my time better so I spend more quality time with my son? We all struggle with very similar everyday challenges. Some of us stop to reflect upon who we are and how we can improve. Others just skim through the day as if they don't even have a shadow. And then there are those who know they have to make a change but say, "I'll do it tomorrow."

MAC2Day is all about discussing the ways in which you have made changes in the present to escape the bad habits of your past and improve your future. Change is not something we are meant to do alone. If you read the biography of any great leader, you will find that they accomplished their dreams by building a strong support system of people who believed in their dreams as much as, if not more, than they did.

This conversation is open to anyone who wants to make a change. If you are the CEO of a company and you want to make a change in your home life, talk about it. There are millions of people just like you. If you are a sales clerk at a retail chain and you want to become a manager, talk about it. Someone else was where you are and is now where you want to be. If you were addicted to drugs and you just got out rehab and have no clue where to begin. Well guess what!? There are millions of people in the same boat. You made a huge change already now reach out to a community of people who can help you discover your strengths, interests, skills and dreams. Or, if you are a single parent who has a passion for life and just wants a job that allows you to support your family and be there as a mother and father, talk about it. There are a lot of us out there too. With the divorce rate at a staggering 60% there are more single parent families than nuclear ones today anyway.
The point is we are all walking on the same Earth surface and most of us are just looking for some support to help us discover where we want to be. Don't let anyone fool you into thinking that they have always had it all figured out their entire life. Because if that is the case then they haven't been tested yet or they have not taken a good hard look at themselves in the mirror.
Don't be shy share your story. You never know how your experience could help save and/or change the life of another.
