You‘re under no obligation to be the same person you were 5 minutes ago.
I’m going to keep this short, sweet, and to the point. Human beings are constantly changing. Constantly. You will never be the same person you were even thirty seconds ago. New cells have formed, old cells have died, neurons have shifted slightly, and some new bit of information has entered your senses (even if it’s just sudden self awareness of all of this happening.) This is awesome, however. Accepting that you are in a state of constant change means that you are constantly in a position to change yourself for the better.
Regardless of your circumstances, regardless of your surroundings, and regardless of what’s gone before this one moment in time, you can always, always, always make a decision to consciously guide this change. In reality, that’s all you can do, that’s all any of us can do. Work towards a mindset of guiding the changes. Because, let’s be honest, change is the only real constant in life. It’s going to happen, no matter what you do.
This is not a bad thing. It’s easier to change the trajectory of an object in motion, as long as you’re not trying to stop its motion. So many people focus on the stopping of the changes. They want to slow things down, take control, stop certain things. There’s no getting off this train, though, and the more you fight it, the harder things become. Accept that change is a constant, and that it is actually to your benefit, not your detriment. Rather than try and stop the momentum of life, redirect it in a different direction.
You’re already a different person than you were five minutes ago, if ever-so-slightly. You will be a different person five minutes from now. Realizing and accepting this means that every five minutes, hell, every thirty seconds, is an opportunity to improve yourself somehow. To make some sort of change for the better.
Be excellent to yourself, and accept the power to be constantly changing yourself (and the world around you) for the better.
Live boldly, change the world, and continue to be awesome.
