It’s Never Too Late to Change

“It is never too late to be what you might have been” ~ George Eliot

This has been my personal mantra ever since I ht 50. I am going to be what I want to be. Change is Good.We all do it, whether we want to or not.But knowing that you want to, and knowing how to do it, is a real gift. I’m not talking about changing the world (that’s a topic for another day), or changing the people around you,  but changing yourself.

The word CHANGE is useful, scary, at times overly employed. It can be a happy thing, it can be  used deviously. It makes people angry, and it becomes  a manifesto. It’s a word for all seasons, for all peoples, for the essence of life itself. And yet, too many people resist it.

Synonyms of the word change are many; but the definition is really quite simple: To make the content or form of something different from what it is now. To transform, to convert, to trade. All these variations mean the same thing. Something is going to be something else. Isn’t that exciting?

I think change is the ultimate lifestyle.  Madonna did it,David Bowie did it.  You know what I’m talking about. Re-invention. Non-conformity. Growth. It can be exhilarating. Or it can be devastating. But one thing it is not – boring!

Everyone who embraces change is a pioneer. Think about it. You are never going to be what you were yesterday. You can start over every morning. You can create a new you whenever you choose.

It’s not always apparent when you do make a change. How often have you heard “There’s something different about you.  Did you dye your hair” ? Subtle changes can be helpful. Especially if you are trying out something that others may be wary of. “Why yes, I’m thinking of going blonde.”

Some changes can be painful, like those we can’t control, or those that others force on us. But remember change IS good.  There’s always that silver lining.  Somewhere.

I’m sure there are those out there who are …ahem!…perfect. Who don’t need to change. Uh-huh! You know who you are.  We don’t want to hear about it, thank you. But when you do make a big, glorious, wonderful, earth-shattering change. Shout it. You have something to be proud about.

Where are you in the process of changing?  Let’s talk about how we cope with the changes in our lives. There’s the comments, right down there.
