Famous last words: I am going to change.
Famous last words until they become true. The impact of change leaves its marks upon us as we journey through life. Many times these marks are uncomfortable and painful leading us to begin fearing change.
If the status quo is working for me…then let’s not rock the boat…no need to change. Famous last words. And literally these might be our last words if we don’t look for change to make our lives richer, to make our lives fulfilling and to seek the blessings of daily joy.
A life is lived in the shade when resisting change; it lacks the magic of curiosity. It lacks the adrenaline and natural dopamine brought about by courage. If we could really understand how we are connected to everything else and how our mental, spiritual and physical being does not operate in a vacuum; we would realize that our change affects everything into even the tiniest microscopic form. Our change affects everything.
Take a few moments for yourself.
Look in the mirror, not as a judge or a victim. Look lovingly at yourself. Smile. Then gently see if there is something you would change…
Close your eyes. Just be for a moment or two. What’s on your mind? Don’t judge, don’t be a victim. Is there change there?
Open your eyes. Sit quietly for a moment or two. Are you okay where you are?
Then…with love in your heart, with a clear mind, and with the resolve of an army make your life what you want it to be.
Famous last words.
