Some have said “You’ve changed…” Whether the notion is implied positively or negatively, I am happy ‘af’ because if I haven’t changed it means I haven’t tried anything new; I haven’t embraced the unknown, I haven’t engaged with people from different parts of the world to tell me and teach me about different parts of the world, I haven’t stepped outside my comfort zone or I haven’t experienced something challenging and daunting.
So yes, I have indeed changed. I have grown, progressed and moved from where I was a year ago, a month ago, a week ago and even a moment ago.
Many have different views on change be it in a person or in general however, it is inevitable and the way you react to it is a direct reflection of you as a person.
Here are a few rules when thinking of changing as a person.
RULES OF CHANGE
- Change for yourself, for what makes you happy.
- Do not try to change people or let people change you.
- Always strive for a positive change.
- A haircut is as good as a change (so maybe its time to book that appointment)
- Be open to change but never change into something you’re not.
If you’re searching for that one person that will change your life, take a look in the mirror.
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. Socrates
Change can be scary and unpredictable, BUT a start to a new beginning.
Perception is a wave. You change as your perception of something changes because you define yourself as a reflection of whatever you happen to perceive. Frederick Lenz
As long as the change is a reflection of your true self and someone you can smile at when you look in the mirror knowing the outer appearance reflects the inner soul which is one of beauty, grace and virtue.
Always the short girl changing for the better.
