By“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”
I hope everyone reading this is having a really good day. And if you are not, just know that in every new minute that passes by you have an opportunity to change. It could be a complete transformation, an interchange or just an exchange of ideas, thoughts, feelings, and more importantly a refreshment of your MIND and by this you become different.
We all have heard the phrase “Nothing is permanent except Change”. No matter what phase of life you are in today, be sure it is going to change someday and this will change you as a person. You either learn to accept, fight for survival or simply give up but change is never going to rest.
I still remember as a kid living in an orthodox society when my folks were against me wearing short skirts and dresses, a typical traditional family. However, now when I look back I remember the same old person who stopped me ten years ago had started to accept the change, they also accepted me being in a relationship and agreed to get me married to the one I loved (considering love marriages that too an inter caste marriage was a big deal in some traditional Indian families and still is), I was also allowed to work simply because they chose to change with time and they chose to accept the changing times.
Today I realize that over these 33 years of my life I have changed as a person. From being a kid to an adult has changed a lot in me. Im sure if you look back at yourself you too have changed in some way or the other. Yes, you definitely start looking different maybe slimmer or fatter..haha or you may even look like a kid! But yes your nature, your habits change to a large extent. This is a living example of how times change and how you change with time!Then why be stubborn to change now!
As we grow older we get more rigid, but as kids we were so easy to adapt to change, change in eating habits, change in sleeping habits, change in dressing sense, change in likes dislikes, so many changes but we accepted and moved on some good some not so good to the extent of our understandings. Today if I have to change the same things it is a big task to firstly convince myself to make the change and then actually implement it.
Why is it such a big deal? Everything happens for a reason and fact that things are changing is a sign that your life is progressing.
If you find it difficult to deal with where you are today or how life is treating you, its time to become different. Ones who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. When we are no longer able to change a situation we are challenged to change ourselves. Today I am in a situation that I cannot change, the only thing in my control is my attitude. And believe you me this has made me different, I am far happier than what I was as compared to when I was stubborn and expected things to change.
The phase where I was struggling to change the situation eventually changed me to a body full of negativity.
We all go through rough times, my funda is to live for today because it’s the memories that last forever and the good ones only make you happier.
Each one of us have different means and ways to get rid of our negative thoughts if you realize those ways and act on them I’m sure you too will vouch for the phrase:
“if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at definitely change”
