Most of us spend our lives trying to change something thinking that if this person or this situation were different, than we would have a better life. We think that if our husband or children would change, we would be happy. We think that if we got a better job or made more money, life would be easier. We think that if we could just make ourselves look better or lose some weight, we would have lots of friends.
The problem is…..we can’t change anyone else and often can’t change anything about our life situations. We can’t change our family, our friends, our work/school situation or things that go on in the world around us.
However, if we make positive changes to our own lives, it will often influence the people around us and we will be able to see life from a positive perspective. Change is possible, but it has to come from within ourselves before we will find any happiness or success in our lives. Family and friends won’t change unless we change first. Life around us won’t change unless we change first. Our future will never change unless we make a decision to change.
Start working on making positive changes in your life and then go and change the world around you!
