I recently had a moment where I was speaking to someone (this someone shall remain nameless and I’m sorry because I know there’s no fun in that). Back to the story, in the middle of my conversation I thought to myself “You don’t know me at all…” I was a little confused and irritated by this and I wanted to help them to understand but then I realized that I’m not sure if I even know myself fully. I don’t want to get all existentialistic on you, but I’m saying this in the sense that although I have had the awesome experience of having a consistent personality (a lot is to be said about that) my attitude, ideas, tolerance, and tastes have changed over the years. As I get older, I can only imagine that life’s interesting experiences will further mold me and I am up for that experience. I’ll just remember to be as patient with everyone else as I am with myself!
I literally cannot count the amount of times that I looked back at something I did or said and thought “I need to change that ASAP!” and then I sat and did nothing until that action or thought process reared its negative head and I was forced to change it. That change meant betterment for myself and the people around me. And with that being said, it’s never to late to make a positive change in your life. I read something that said (I’m paraphrasing here) “In a year, you’ll wish you started today…” and I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s so true! Just think if you started saving money A YEAR AGO, starting eating healthier A YEAR AGO, stopped hanging with negative people A YEAR AGO you’d have more money, be healthier and have a less stressful social life. Now on the flip-side, sometimes that change comes too late. Not too late for you per say, but too late for the individual that it was negatively affecting. In these cases I implore you to look inside of yourself and make those positive changes before it’s too late and you lose the friendship or companionship of someone that you don’t want to be without.
