How do you feel about change and when you look back on your life have you really changed or just grown older?
The woman I was at the age of 25 is not the same woman I am now. Most of us will breeze through life, making the same mistakes follow the same patterns and won’t change a thing. Sometimes we don’t see the need or feel it’s us that need to change; but life’s not like that. We must all look to change. We will never grow emotionally without it.
The thing about change is that to benefit from it, we have to put in the necessary time and effort. In all fairness, it’s not always easy to understand and see what changes we need to make. Others often see and know more than we know ourselves. We never equate our repeated habits as a need for change; but any habit that becomes repetitive in my opinion 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 becomes easier in time. The problem most of us have, is that to change we must perceive our life differently and to do that we need to work on new strategies that will help us achieve a better balance. The right changes can make our life more rewarding and less stressful.
My spiritual beliefs pointed me towards change many years ago. I don’t believe it’s possible to grow without any form of change. My feeling is that any change that is positive is a key for peace, tranquillity and harmony.
Without any changes, we’re more likely to become stereotype, predictable and annoying to other people, particularly if our behaviour is less than graceful.
