The Truth about Changing Lives

The truth about changing lives is something that is always looked for. Some find it; some don’t.
It’s amazing how easily one can feel stuck out of the blue. At times, I can feel so overwhelmed with things that are out of my control. Then something often shifts, and my perspective changes. The issues that seemed to frustrate me fall away, and a new focus is found, usually much more productive that what I was focusing on. What happened to change that focus?

I changed slightly.

What Happens when You do Change?

And whenever you find out how to change your life; whenever you change, your entire world changes with you.

It is amazing to see that what we allow or don’t allow in ourselves is mirrored in our exterior life. If we feel internally frustrated and lost, the world will prove that we are right. If we focus on the positive, and strive to focus only on what we can control, the world is positive and malleable to fit our needs.

What Needs to be Changed in Your Life?

What is something that feels completely out of your control that you are letting control you? Is it your work, your relationships, your health, or your life itself?

Could you think of a better way? Could you find a mantra for changing lives?

What would your life look like if you had the personal power to change it to how you want?

What is that one thing you could do RIGHT NOW to move in that direction?

Change is not a New Thing

Change happens all the time. Things change; they even fall apart; and then they get back together. All of us witness it more than once in our lifetimes. The truth is that change will always happen, but you will still have to discover how to change your lives.

It happens at big levels and small. No matter how pro you are towards it, you won’t experience it unless you are a part of it. The moment you decide to change your own self, things will too. That is the first step, and the ultimate one too.

How to Change Your Life?
This is a process that can never be sudden. It goes in phases, starting from bringing yourself to make small changes in you, leading to enduring ones. This is the only right way, and the only way for that matter.
Nothing will change until you do.

How to Find Yourself behind the Façade of Normalcy

How to Find Yourself

Is Normalcy a Façade?

The more you try to find what the definitions of “normal” is, the farther you will be driven from it.

Here is the scenario – your best efforts go in trying to be how everyone else around you acts because that is considered normal. You try harder every day, every time, to just fit in, to seek their approval, just this one more time. And you push back the feeling of being weird so hard that you want to forget it.

But the truth is that the flimsy shell beneath which you hide yourself is just a hair’s breadth away from crumbling. Isn’t it true?

My Word to You

Let the shell crumble.

No shell, no façade, can stay in place for too long. The sooner it comes off, the better.
So, show the world your flavor of the “weird”. There is all probability that the ones around you will be shocked at times. Do you know why? Not because it is out of place but it reminds them of their own shell. It makes them realize how transient it is and that theirs too could crumble any moment.

There is nothing in you that you must hide. Normalcy comes from norms. And norms are only manmade. That is nowhere near changing lives, that is dictating lives. Don’t let others make you.

Be yourself, totally yourself, lose yourself in being you.

Why Must You Be You?

The world doesn’t need even one more normal person when there is already a crowd. The world needs you weird; it’s already full of “normal” numbskulls! It’s quite mundane to have clones of clones all around. The sincere employee who can never take a break; the dedicated housewife who must always tend to her children all the time; the overburdened student who must score an A in all subjects – we already have an army of those people, and of those who are constantly trying to be all that.

Is there anything that is different about you? If there is, then you must not hide it, because it is as much a part of you as your eyes or your hands.

Next time, leave that webpage up that you would have hidden it when others came by; bring that book to read on your break that you thought may make you look weird.

Do tell me what is that one thing that you could do today that would challenge the status quo. Please tell me of you wish to learn how to find yourself.

Chip the shell, free yourself.
