Change is slow, it happens in steps. Some steps come quickly one right after the next, and some come slowly as if a rest is needed between them. Or perhaps those slow steps are so difficult that it takes a hundred or more tiny little steps, so small that they cannot even be noticed, to build enough moment for one larger step. Change is necessary, without change I am nothing. I must become more than I was, more than I am. I must grow and evolve into something bigger, better, smarter, wiser, kinder, gentler, more compassionate, more humble, more giving, stronger, less selfish, I must change. How I change is my choice.
What happens to me and what happens around me are not what makes me. How I react, adapt and continue is what makes me who I am. I can always choose the better path. I would not be here today if not for my past, but I would not have a reason to be here if not for my future. My future is what should determine the change I embrace. If one can plan for the future they desire, the goals, dreams and ambitions that possess their heart, they can realize the changes they should make. I must continually assess my own life and determine the changes needed. Then I must refocus my efforts to change, it is not easy, the human mind, and body does not like change. The human spirit however craves change. It is this spirit that must win the struggle. If I am going to be more, if I am going to do more, if I am going to leave a lasting impact on this world I must embrace change and become.
