I will be part of changing
KEEP CHANGING, KEEP GROWING
There are many concepts of it and all of us can have our own specific explanation of the word ‘changes’. For one of us it could be a change of feelings, for other change of the environment, wishes, lifestyle, body conditions, health and so on. There as many opinions as there are people.
For me, like for everyone in this world, there are many types of change everywhere and all the time. But right now I would like to talk about changes inside us. The first and the most important changes in our life. Why the changes inside us are most important? Because around us everything is changing by itself: our friends, life conditions, living place, work, our body, the weather, etc. Simultaneously our own beliefs, our way of thinking and in general our inside, our ‘soul’ are staying the same, only we control it.
But sometimes there comes a time when we can feel that something is happening within us, when we start to think in another way, to be interested in things we weren’t interested in before, talk about things we never talked about before and to be someone who we were not before.
Six months ago I started to think about what I am doing and for what. Don’t worry, it wasn’t the first time when I thought about it. There were many times but exactly this last time I was ready to think about it in a different way and take actions on it. I was feeling that I was somewhere really far away from reality by doing things with no purpose. I wanted to do something and to feel that what I am doing has meaning, to see that something is changing because of my work and my endeavor. To try to be more close to reality.
Look around where we are living and how it is. How are the people around you living? Is this the world/environment where you want to live?
I don’t want to live in a world like this where all around us are such a big problems like slavery, violence, global warming, poverty… Why is it all happening around us? It has not come from nature. It has come from us, from humanity. So, should we just keep going doing things that don’t have any impact on it, and let all of those things ruin the world? Or shall we take action?
I have only one life and I don’t want to live in a world like this so I will not turn my back to this damaged world. I will turn around to face the world and give my entire endeavor to live in a world without slavery, violence and poverty.
This is my decision. I changed my way of thinking about life how I want to live and what for. I strongly decided that I will be part of changing our world to be a more proper place to live for us and our children.
I changed myself and I am always in the process of changing, in the process of growing.
So these are my changes and my reasons, what about yours?
