It is said that you have to want to change in order to change and to change things you have to first change yourself. Whether it is a change in outlook or a change in how you go about your day it is something that you have to want. There are unwanted changes that we have to adapt to but that is called adaptation. The change written about here is from personal choice, hopefully for the better. This change should be desired.
The desire to change comes from something that stirs deep in you and it can come about from anywhere; from within and without but it must stir you. The change that begins with you must stir your soul. It will touch you in a way that you rarely experience and it will inspire you to make the changes in your life to bring it into being. You may stumble and fall after getting inspired but, if you have truly been touched, you can rise and make that change.
Now this change will not come over night because it is rarely the case that it can ever happen so swiftly. But be patient, for when you want to make a change you can no matter how long it takes. It is sad that many who seek to make changes find themselves giving up short of their goal of change. Some times it takes years and for the longest time the end will not be in sight. Do not be discouraged push through. For while change begins with you, it is who you change into in the process that makes it all worthwhile.
