The importance of Change


“Now that we are done talking about the end of the world, maybe we can start focusing on making this the Beginning of a Better one!”

Congratulations! We are alive and kicking , enjoying the last few days of 2012. And what a better time than now to closely examine our actions, reactions and thoughts.

First let us set the record straight for those of us who once thought they can start from scratch… There is no such thing. One cannot undo what has been done nor can one hop on board a time travel shuttle and erase whatever is not to his liking. But the Good News is , we can all implement drastic changes in ourselves which will reflect upon our realities thus the world.

Mind your thoughts!

“Mind your thoughts for they become your words; mind your words for they become your actions; mind your actions for they become your habits; mind your habits for they become your character; watch your character for they become your destiny.” Charles Reade

No…This is not another call for positive thinking!  just a “note to self” that what we think or believe, on both our conscious and subconscious levels, form our reality.  So lets declutter our mind the same way we clean our homes, remove those limiting beliefs that prevent us from moving forward in life and start 2013 with a fresh set of thoughts. Peter Pan said it all ” You can fly to Neverland, Its easy Just think a Happy Thought!”

The Process of Change

“Be the Change you want to see in the world” – Mahatma Ghandi


The world does not change by wishing upon a star. It Shifts through Determination, Devotion and Action! First figure out what are the changes you wish to see in 2013; is it more Green? Then Go Green! Is it Ethical Treatment of our Furry Friends? Then adopt, save and spread awareness! Is it a change in society? Then do it yourself! and the list goes on.

If each and every one of us implements positive changes we would inevitably ignite the chain reaction we have all been longing for. Nike said it best after all “JUST DO IT” !

Change is a process. It doesn’t just happen overnight. It need a strong will and the determination to make things happen one step at a time.

Happy change!
