These quotes around change tell us both that Change is constant, and that we have within us the power to embrace change. Take heart from these!
When I left home at the age of 18 to move to a new city, my life underwent an immense change. The environment, the people, the place and more importantly me, everything changed, and it was hard to keep up with it.
I needed inspiration, I needed motivation and assurance, that change is not always bad, that change is evident and without it, I wouldn’t be moving forward. It is a hard process, but, eventually, we need to make changes to grow and develop.
Remembering the past is good but sticking by it could hold you back in the course of life; that’s why we need to evaluate the present and reflect on the past to move forward and improve constantly.
For me reading books and inspiring quotes around change helped me focus on accepting the newness of my life, and now, even though change still scares me, I am more open to the idea of it all.
There would have been no development without these positive changes in life, ideologies or actions; we are where we are because of this cycle of questioning and thereby always changing and moving ahead.
