Change Is Never Painful

Change is the natural state of being. It is the single constant in the universe. If you are living, you are changing, continually, even from one moment to the next. You are not the same person when you lay down at night as you were when you woke in the morning, and you likely didn't even notice the change. You almost certainly didn't notice as it was happening. It is not change that causes us discomfort. We never even notice most of the change around us until long after it has occurred. What bothers us, instead, is when we fight against change, when we try to hold the universe in place against all laws of reality. The way of life is change, and the way of being alive is to be changing. Keep learning, keep growing, and keep changing. That way you will keep living, and you will find the changes far less uncomfortable.

The Greatest Wealth

The person who measures wealth by the accumulation of things will never be content. There will always be more things to accumulate, and the more one has, it seems, the more one must continue to acquire in order to maintain the same level of reward. The person who measures wealth through the lens of being content will never need to accumulate things. If I am content to sit by a tree and watch the sunset, what more could I possibly acquire. I already have everything that matters, because I am content. The greatest wealth, then, lies in being content. Once you have achieved that, you have all you need.

I've Decided To Be Happy

We cannot always choose to be happy, but we can always choose to be happier. It is a subtle distinction, but one that matters. It does no good to pretend that outside influences, and even some inside influences, don't exist and cannot exert undue pressures, but it does even less good to allow those influences to have greater control than is warranted. I cannot control every circumstance in my life, but I can choose how to face those circumstances, and I can choose my own priorities in the matter of how much importance to give to those circumstances. It's a matter of perspective, and my perspective is that I will do what I can to make my life better. As long as I continue to make that choice, I am choosing to be happy.

The Greatest Prison

How much of yourself have you given away to the beliefs and ideas of other people? How much of your own growth have you sacrificed because you were afraid of what someone else would think? I am learning to be the master of my own life, but I am far from qualified to be the master of yours, and the same is true no matter who sits in the positions of "I" and "you". No one knows the specific needs and inner workings of your own life the way you do, so no one else is more qualified to govern the growth of your life. Accept advice, learn from others, but do not lock yourself inside a prison that does not need to exist. Let yourself grow and flourish, and be who you need to be.

Become Unshakable

The greatest asset you have is your own belief in yourself. It is with this tool that you will build all others, and it is this tool that cannot be taken from you except by your own will. If everyone around you believes in you yet you do not, it will be as a river lapping at a stone without the ability to do more than get the stone wet. It will accomplish something very close to nothing. If you believe in yourself, though, even in the absence of all other belief, it will be as that same river working away at the very root of the stone until it comes undone and everything changes. No one can change you the way you can. Use that, and see what you can accomplish.

Flowers Bloom

No matter how dark the night, the dawn will come. There is always tomorrow, and tomorrow is always a chance for hope. Flowers grow in the most unlikeliest of places, and hope can bloom from the deepest despair. Sometimes you need to sit down and take a break. That's fine. Catch your breath, recover your strength, and then take another step forward. As long as you continue to move forward there is reason to hope, and as long as you have hope you can make a difference. Don't give up. Keep going. Tomorrow's a new day, a new chance, a new beginning. Have hope.

Never Too Late

It is never too late to make a difference. It is never too late to try something new, or to be something new. You might have an epiphany on your death bed that could change the world. It's happened before. It can happen again. Don't despair and don't give up. You can begin again at any moment you choose, and you can change directions no matter how far you have traveled. You cannot redo the past, but every new step is a possible new beginning. Take that chance and make of it what you will. It's never too late to be who you choose to be.
