Change got potential, offers insights emerging to the surface. And the consciousness of new sources to be discovered.

It’s always the right timing to define our lives by whom we are and stand for but not what we have or possess. 

Let’s choose goodness and kindness before enslaving ourselves to material things that capture our full intention and undivided energy.

When realizing that life isn’t just me but us you

 implement a stepping stone to set yourself free to gaining happiness and personal freedom. Our lives are defined by the things we do and stand for, and most of all by what we do for others. No life is uniform or like another.

“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” – Andy Warhol

Change is a wake-up call to think and do things differently, to leave well-trodden paths behind. It’s an invitation to use gained experience from the past for building new ways of living in more sustainable meaningful ways in the here & now.

We can say, the past has been our teacher to show walkable ways of life, the present is our turn to implement the learned lesson in the best possible ways to reach a better, more satisfying outcome and situations.

„If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t living.” — Gail Sheehy

Change mostly doesn’t come easily but out of a need to mind and treat things differently. Every day got countless opportunities to do so, calling for change, minding, and acting differently is leading to enhanced meaningful thoughts and mindful activities. Just to do it won’t lead to an exceptional outcome but keep one in an easy to handle repeating mode without any inspiration but in a kind of robotic assembly line routine. 

“Sometimes if you want to see a change for the better, you have to take things into your own hands.” – Clint Eastwood

Where there’s an unwillingness to change there’s no key to open the door of a new consciousness and improvements possible. 

Being static, non-moving is irrational as everything is in change and movement, just take a look around on our spinning planet with its tendency to tilt. We are no statues, we were made to move and to move on when needed.

“If you want to change the culture, you will have to start by changing the organization.” – Mary Douglas

When changing our clothes or TV channel is a normal procedure we don’t think much about then our mindset and daily procedures need a change in new done ways as well. Leaving routine and being ready for new approaches and mindful actions in the light of a new consciousness. And lead to an awakened mindset, a welcome openness to try new ways. 

“One of my favorite philosophical tenets is that people will agree with you only if they already agree with you. You do not change people’s minds.” – Frank Zappa

When walking the same path or talk the talk day by day we feel safe in routine but lock ourselves out of what’s still to be discovered, picked up, and learned. Routine is like an umbrella that keeps you away from rain or sun. But when it’s hefty windy on bumpy roads it won’t protect and you‘ve to face burning heat or wind or the undisputed truth right in your face.

This is the moment we tend to avoid but have been exhaustively waiting for, the need for change appearing when we can’t bear the present circumstances any longer. We are humans in search, seeking freedom, shelter, health, happiness and the pleasures life has to offer. 

When change occurs whatever the reason might be we tend to hide, are sticking, clinging to previous methods, procedures that seemed to make us feel protected by an invisible safety net. The one that’s doesn’t work any longer by now as it’s outworn and part of the past, the so-called “before Corona age.”

“If you want to change attitudes, start with a change in behavior.” — William Glasser
