Be Yourself

winnie-fishing“A fish can’t whistle and neither can I.”

There’s nothing wrong with not being able to whistle, especially if you’re a fish. But there can be lots of things wrong with blindly trying to do what you aren’t designed for.

Change

Any change, even a change for the better,

is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.

Arnold Bennett

Change, my life right now is in a constant state of change.  And yes, Mr. Bennett is right.  It is accompanied by many drawbacks and discomforts.

I’ve always been resistant to change on the inside, while on the outside displaying (or trying to display) the strong, adventurous, scared of nothing persona.  And when I did change something in my life, it was selected carefully and only one thing at a time was changed.

So what got into me?  I have totally turned my world upside down.  I’ve dumped out everything and replaced it with new and alien things.  I’m lost, alone, uncomfortable and confused.

I hate mania……..I hate the pain of change.

Accepting No

or worse, to avoid trouble.

Life is a series of collisions with the future; it is not a sum of what we have been but what we yearn to be.
