I know that humans have a natural tendency to want to make changes and grow and modify. That is one of our strengths, I think. I just wonder if we tend to be drawn to these forms of entertainment when we, ourselves, are going through some sort of transformation? Or...want to go through a transformation. There are things in my life, especially over the last 12 months that have changed a lot (IE job, job location, etc). Also, I have found that I am really wanting to get back into shape...start training for something again. I wonder if by watching others go through alterations, I am inspired in my own day-to-day growth. Or am I reaching?
I moved around a lot when I was a kid, went to a slew of new schools, and learned the habit of re-arranging the furniture at regular intervals from my mother. It seems a natural part of my life, and when I am not taking steps to either better myself or update my environment to suit my mood, I feel weird. I think change is a constant, and growth is necessary to feel alive. Even small changes, like painting a wall a new color, make a dramatic difference in the flow of one's life. What do you think?
A good quote for you to chew on with this post:
“Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become.”Some things I am working on currently, so you can at least have an idea of what changes I mean, include:
- riding my bike to/from work more often (gas, health, etc)
- starting a strength training program (cause I am weak)
- re-arranging furniture
- working on some pictures/wall hangings for our casa
- possibly taking a dance class or something soon...like Tango...that sounds like fun :)
What changes are you wanting to make, and what steps are you taking to make them?
