Just a thought

Who matters more?

It might be hard for some of us to believe but…

  • The color of your skin does not make you more important than any other. It just makes you another unique person.
  • Being first to arrive in a country does not mean you have more rights, it means you can help those that come after you.
  • Being part of a religious group does not mean all others are dammed, it means you should have learned tolerance, giving back, and loving thy neighbor.

Everyone matters, equally, or at least they should.

Repeat After Me

You can’t keep doing the same thing and expect things to change.

Yet, that is what you do. You hope and plan for better days without doing the hard work, changing something you’re doing. Something in your life has got to go if you want something new to begin. Giving up that annoying habit, changing that boring routine, stopping that damaging relationship. You pick, you decide what it’s going to be. No one else can make you do it. No one has the power over your choices. No one else knows your needs, your wants, your dreams. Sure you can take advice. Yes, you can be inspired by those you admire. But for things to change, you must do something different.

Make that change. If it doesn’t work out, make another change.

It’s always up to you

It’s hard to believe but you have complete control over your life.

You can stay the course or you can make a drastic life changing decision in the blink of an eye.

Sure, we like to say that we are stuck in this daily grind, that our choices are limited by our circumstances. And yes, we have responsibilities and there are people depending on us. Oh, and we can say that life is complicated and it’s too scary to move into the unknown.

All valid reasons to stay put in your safe place, our comfort zone. We have our reasons and they are used by the best of us.

But in the final analysis, in a moment of clarity, in the quiet reflection of your choices taken, you know these are just excuses.

What are you afraid of? Fear is powerful and it comes in many forms. That step into the dark has the potential to bring great rewards.
