31 CHANGE

Change; the inherent cycle of evolution, it is one of life’s only guarantees. Often we stand in resistance of change.

Change is inevitable. It happens whether you want it or not, whether you go peacefully and willingly or you are dragged kicking, screaming, demanding and protesting into it.

The truth…let’s face it…

Change is considerably easier in theory than it is in practice. It is difficult and complex, it requires introspection, doing mental inventory, stepping out of ones comfort zone and letting go of old mind sets that may have served you well in the past but has become a hindrance to you now, ending a relationship(s) or having the courage to rise up and save the one you're in that maybe on life support.

It challenges one to elevate and heighten their thinking, to perhaps leave behind old ways of thinking, reacting, behaving and conceptualizing in order to embrace something new. It does not mean giving up who you are, just letting go of things, people, notions and theories that keeps one from realizing ones true potential, its about creating a better you or at least it should be.

Change simply means doing instead of talking about doing.

 

MY POINT:

It is infinitely easier to talk the talk than it is to walk the walk.

SOMETHING TO PONDER

Fear is a motivator for many things including doing nothing.

  3. I read somewhere once that the reason we are so resistant to change is that change repudiates that which makes us what we are.

    Have a great day most Fabulious One,

  7. You are right we either have to man or woman up to grow and be what we dream about each day or lay in the bed of discontent.

    1. Me neither, it is only the inevitability of it all that has me reconciled to choose my own path since i have to move anyway, it might as well be in favor of and to my advantage, if there is an advantage to be had that is.

  9. This reminds me of a book "Who moved my Cheese"
    It definitely is easier to talk the talk than it is to walk the walk.

    1. "Who moved my Cheese" what a delightfully intriguing name for a book, it evokes the imagination. This inquiring mind certainly wants to know.

      Oh absolutely it is, that is a piece diffinately a work in progress for me. I am practicing the art of walking the talk as I've already mastered the art of talking it.

  10. This looks like a sequel to your previous post huh? :D

    yes! talk is cheap.....walk the talk, ain't easy.

    change? it does not come easily....but there is an common saying:
    A BLIND MAN DOES NOT NEED TO BE TOLD THE MARKET IS CLOSED.BY THE TIME HE DOES NOT HEAR VOICES HE WOULD KNOW!

    When there is a NEED for a change, the person involved, would know!

    1. I didn't mean it to be-a sequel that is. I suppose it can be viewed as such. Happy coincidence? Love the parable.

  11. There are tow types of change-controllable and uncontrollable.Aging,wrinkles,slowing down of faculties, climate etc are uncontrollable.They can be retardedor intensity lessened but cannot be stopped in its inexorable journey.Controllable are those like our attitudes,choices and values.Though within our power, it is not easy too.
    There is no life without change and one should welcome positive changes

  12. Change is definitely easier in theory than practice. I am resistant to change although I like change. Does that even makes sense? LOL

    1. It absolutely make sense. I've been known to shadow some of these same characteristics sometimes.

  13. It gets harder as you get older. Change that is. I guess the trick is to know when to change and when not to change. Then again I also guess that I'm stating the obvious. No wait let me change that.

    1. haha....i know what you mean-as we get older we become set in our ways and resist more changes we feel will unsettle us from our places of comfort.

  14. Yes first practice what you preach and set the pace for change - but this is easier said than done :)
