Inspiration always comes to me in the form of a title for an article and as I sit and type, it seems that Mary and Louise are much more able to connect with me and influence my mind in terms of what the message needs to be.
It’s not new that I talk about change. Change is without a doubt happening all around us all the time and we can choose to be a part of it or we can choose to step outside of it and just allow it to happen. Which person are you?
I think if we’re all honest, we’ll admit that we’re a little of both. There are times when we choose to make changes in our life and there are times when we have no choice but to make changes and then there are times when we go into change kicking and screaming and I think it’s at this point that we become bystanders. But being a bystander surely cannot be the best choice for us. Should we decide to take this route, then we most definitely cannot complain when we find ourselves at the end of change and it’s not to our liking!
So taking for instance, a really important event taking place in South Africa, 8th May 2019. Will you as a South African, be going to the polls to place your vote? Or…. have you decided that your vote won’t make any difference and it will be far more comfortable for you to sit on the couch and watch tv while the rest of SA stands in uncomfortable long queues waiting to cast their vote? What’s it going to be?
Now I certainly don’t want to become all political especially in an article that I’m writing for Spirit Connection. However, this is such a great opportunity for an example that we can all relate to. So, should the outcome of the vote not be to your liking, and you didn’t do anything to contribute either way, then as I say, surely you have no right to complain.
And that goes for anything that happens in our lives. We should all be choosing to take a 100% active part in our lives at all times. For when we don’t, that’s when we find ourselves laying the blame for things going wrong at the door of others. And when we do that, we don’t afford ourselves the opportunity to learn our lessons. We don’t afford ourselves a teaching or learning moment – and for me that’s really sad.
I’m not saying become a total control freak – people don’t like to be in the company of someone who consistently wants to be in control of everything. What I am saying is that you need to take total control of your own life. Make those difficult decisions when they need to be made. If you put off doing so, you’ll just drive yourself crazy! As uncomfortable as it may be or feel at the time, nine times out of ten, when we find ourselves on the other side of change, we say to ourselves : ‘wow, that wasn’t half as bad as I thought it would be.” Or : “I’m so grateful I made those changes in my life as things are so much better now.”
A word of advice – don’t ever allow yourself to become apathetic, especially about yourself, your life and how you live it. Rather live your life with enthusiasm, excitement and passion. See yourself as the perfect being that you are, rather than the ‘less than’ individual that you feel you are. Know that you are an absolute perfect extension of the Absolute, the Father / Mother God who created all heaven and earth and everything that lives, moves and breathes. And honour yourself for that reason, if for none other. Change your life and you will change your destiny!
