Life is short, right? We hear that saying all the time but tend to ignore its significance. We take life for granted when we need to be allowing opportunities to gravitate towards us. We say we want change. We say we want the world to change and that we want to change the world. We say we want our lives to change. However, what is the ingredient to initiate change? Ourselves. Our mind. Our voice. Our beliefs. That must change.
A change within the world and our world cannot take place unless a change inside is made. We must change our negatives to positives, our anger to love and our resentment to laughter. We must open our hearts and let energy and opportunities flow. We say we want change, but we don't want to change ourselves, we want it to just happen. But the only form of great change must start from within ourselves.
How do we change ourselves? How do we open our hearts? We start by living our lives for ourselves, for our passions, for our aspirations. We start to live in the moment, by focusing on the little things and showing an abundance of gratitude, to then love ourselves, and shape ourselves to change this world.
