Continue Changing, Maturing and Creating Yourself, Endlessly!




"To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly."
~ Henri Bergson (French Philosopher)

It might be said that life, at every moment, is creating something.

It is not always true that just because 'That is the way it HAS always been' means that is the way it Will always be.

This way of thinking of, or viewing ourselves, is especially untrue when applied to our ability to change, from the inside out.

Utilizing Positive Adaptation we can 'Think, Feel and Do', better; become the best we can be, thus able to live and enjoy life to the fullest!

Everyday offers us all the opportunity to become more true to ourselves and therefore, others. We must be willing to mature, gain wisdom and allow ourselves to develop into the best possible 'us' we can be.

Everyday, every moment, we have the ability to positively change, mature and create ourselves! The results of theses changes will be our feeling better about ourselves, our decisions and life, in general.

Please re-read some of the previous posts, think about how you would like you and your life to change and then work on you to achieve the change you seek.

Life is a cycle and everyday offers us a new opportunity for change. Today, let us all be willing to choose to take advantage of it!

Slow Down - Feelin Groovy

"Slow down, you're movin' too fast, you got to make the morning last.
Just kickn' down the cobblestones, looking for fun and feelin' groovy"
 ~ Simon & Garfunkel (listen to on the right side)

As we begin the new year, let us try to remember the words above.

The pace of life is just so fast.  Many people expect their actions to have immediate positive results. Unfortunately, that is not how it generally works, especially with emotions, (yours or others).

Time, alone, does not change much. However, time, with more positive, consistent behaviors and attitudes, does!

I am not suggesting that we stop positively changing and growing, only that we slow down and enjoy the process a bit more.  

It is in this time of reflection and celebration that I find I enjoy and celebrate myself, others, (life in general, to the fullest), more.  
This is when I feel most "groovy"!

Give it a try and let me know how it works for you.
