It’s been a long time. These days I’ve been struggling with things internally but also externally.
Today I wanted to talk about change. It seems that, that is something we all have in common whether we know it or not. It’s something that sees no color, race, class, you name it, we all face it.
I am very into quotes and these days with the help of modern technology you can have them sent to you daily. This week alone I received two quotes that had something to do with change.
The first was by William James “ Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action”. The second was by someone many may be more familiar with Mahatma Gandhi “Be the change that you wish to see in the world”.
I thought they are pretty deep quotes. Sometimes when we think of action and happiness in the same sentence, we may think that we need to take a specific action or change in order to bring that happiness, however, sometimes we may need to take a direction that we may not know in order to see if we get that happiness.
The second quote I took more on a personal level not the world as a whole. Within our own lives we may need to do something or make that change, in order, to see what we may be wishing or dreaming of.
Now I will be the first to admit, that change is by no means easy, for some perhaps it is. I know for me it isn’t. For some change may be difficult because of something physical, financial, or mental restraint. I think for me it may be a little of all.
We all have heard the saying “history repeats itself”. We have seen it. We are living through it. Stop and think. Maybe history repeating itself is because change has never took place.
For me, whether it may be small at first, I need to change. It won’t be easy. There’s a saying “the road to easy street goes through the sewer”. So it may be difficult, it may even hurt but all we can do is try. Just like a baby sometimes learns to crawl before they walk we too may need to learn the same.
For all those reading this maybe you’re struggling with having to make a change. If you are consider these words that was once said by John F. Kennedy “Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future“.
Let us not miss the future because it just may be what we are longing for!
