How do you feel about change and when you look back on your life have you really changed or just grown older?
The person I was at the age of 25 is not the same person I am now. Most of us will breeze through life making the same mistakes, follow the same patterns and won’t change a thing. Perhaps we don’t see the need or feel it’s us that need to change. But we must all look to change because we will never grow emotionally without it.
The thing about change is that to benefit, we must put in the necessary time and effort. But it’s not always easy to understand and know what changes we need to make. Others often see and know for us more than we know for ourselves. We never equate our repeated habits as a need for change; but any habit that is repetitive is a good reason for change.
I believe that anything we repeat shows a lack of imagination, a lack of thought, a lack of growth and a lack of consideration, particularly towards others when those others are on the receiving end of our behaviour.
Although change is difficult it does get easier in time. The problem is that to change we must perceive our lives differently and to do that we need to work on new strategies that will help us achieve change and our goals. But the right changes will make our life more rewarding and less stressful.
My spiritual beliefs pointed me towards change many years ago. Any change that is positive is a key for peace, tranquillity and harmony. Without any change, we’re more likely to become stereotype, predictable and annoying to other people, based on our behaviour.
