Wow… this ride I’m on some call life, dude…”Oh the places you’ll go!” My man Dr. Suess knew what he was talking about. He was the first philosopher that ever picqued my interest. Which is why Green Eggs and Ham will always be my favorite childhood story, and why Sam-I-Am is inked into my ankle. I got it at five years old, during reading time at Silverdale Elementary. The good Dr. let me know that the world is a very large place with full of things to explore and try, and though many of them may be unfamilar to me, I should remain open–because that’s what life’s about: Experience. See, I never understood boarders, limitations, labels, boxes, or being stunted in any way. I still don’t get it. I don’t understand why people are sooo afraid of the unknown. Truly, there’s no excuse for it, there’s only a reason and that is fear.
The world is going to change, we are going to change in it, whether we like it or not. So, why resist? I don’t know. But, the thing is things move forward here on planet earth, not backward. Sure, one can argue that history likes to repeat itself, but, I would say that it is people that like repeating themselves. Here’s my thing, progress means being unfamiliar with something, or even yourself in a situation. You know you’re going with the flow of things if you don’t know what’s up ahead, if you feel out of your element. And, while some people tend to not like change, they really have no choice in the matter, the choice is your reaction to change. You can resist, but…YOU WILL LOSE. It’s guaranteed. Therefore, the change will happen, you’ll be mad, bitter, and whatever, where in the same situation you could’ve chosen otherwise. Me? When I see change up ahead, I’ve come to run toward it with a big hug and say, “Thanks, I was getting bored!” I mean since its coming anyway, I might as well befriend it.
Lately, I’ve been seing a lot of people resisting their call to change from the universe. And, while I’ve tried to help some–I’m also seeing a lot of resistance to change. And, I’m not feeling as inclined to give energy to those resisting what they know they must become. There’s only so much I can do. The rest really is up to the individual. But, this much I know for sure, you cannot be successful without change. You cannot become your dream without it. There is no other way–there isn’t. So, truly, if you want happiness, success and all that, you cannot be the person you are today, but, become the person you will be tomorrow.
