Develop Yourself First, Before Trying to Change the World
Quote of the day:
Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
I think the above quote by Rumi is very apt. When change is elusive...look within.
I grew up wanting to change the world (didn't we all?) but over the years my perspective and reasoning has taken a different path. One which leads me to believe that everything happens for a reason, and that change cannot come unless the seed is grown within...blossoming into a beautiful flower.
It is a valuable lesson to learn, and through the darkest of trials and brilliance of victories, it makes a lot of sense. Before you change something, you have to change yourself. Before you decide to talk about people's bad habits, deal with yours first. Before you start trying to get people to love you or care for you, or respect you...you have to love, care and respect yourself first.
Let us all be a great and shinning reflection of change...but let it start from within. This week is a good time to re-examine your life, and reflect on things. What do you think?
Peace & Love always*
