091 - I see no changes
Change. It's the one thing the majority of us fear more than death itself. We try and do everything in our power to keep things the way that they are to remain certain, to hold onto some form of security and feel like we're in control
Besides, if everything stays the same, there's comfort. And we all love being comfortable
But when you look at nature, when you look at the world around us, everything, and I meant everything, is in a state of flux - a state of rapid change
The weather. The temperature. Night and day. Seasons. Ice turns to water. Water boils. Heat applied to food changes both the taste, texture, and what it looks like. Everything in life changes, it appears to be one of the most natural things in life
So why do we run away from it? Why don't we embrace it? Why can't we understand the concept that we're going through multiple "phases" in life, multiple "heroes journeys", go with the flow and enjoy it all
"Your dreams draw near when you advance despite fear"
- Brendon Burchard
We're evolving whether we like it or not. The power lies in our choosing and deciding of where we want to grow and how we want to evolve
You can sit idly by, drenched in fear, and watch your life pass you by...
Or you can take the reigns, walk into the fear, and choose the area's in which you want to grow and evolve in life
