Perhaps we would rather not look at our own lives and admit that change must happen, if we are to grow. By and large it’s easier to point to others who resist change than recognise or admit to our own change resistance. After all change will create yet more change which subsequently impacts not only on ourselves but also those around us and our environment. Burying our heads in the sand, putting up and shutting up, only prolong the misery. But perhaps it is easier to remain distracted and discontent rather than address patterns of our behavior. Could the thought of change be too great and hold too many fears for us to overcome?
Whilst many are standing up to change both locally, nationally and globally, sometimes we could all do with a little help feeling better about ourselves and the world around us. Thanks to Action for Happiness and their October Calendar, this could be your month for optimism!
