Change Is Good

I don't know what has gotten into me but it seems like since an hour ago, I've become somewhat reflective of myself and the things that I'd like to change with the way I live my life. The thing with me is when I encounter something, say a quote or lyrics from a song that I keep on hearing, that resonates with me on a personal level, I agree with it and then simply tuck it in my memory bank where it gets lost forever. So I took the time to look at some things I've saved, words of wisdom, if you may, and really think about how I want them to affect me.

In general, it all comes down to change. It is something I'm really afraid of, if I'm totally honest. And who isn't, really? Some people may not fear change as much but it's still something they think twice about, just like me. But this year, I decide to accept change in my life, whether it be small or big. It may take me quite some time to adjust to things being different but I know I'll get there.

One thing I know for sure is the first step towards change is knowing the need to change and wanting to do it for yourself and not because other people tell you so.

And so I leave you with this:

"About to blame? Stop. About to judge? Stop. About to criticize? Stop. Take a deep breath, and just be willing to see things differently."

  1. I definitely agree to this post. Nakakarelate ako ng sobra. You're lucky that at a young age you are able to grasp the idea of change. It is scary, sometimes I get shitless scared, too. Pero kaya natin to!! :)
