Change...to change or not to change!

Well Monday is here again. While this of course means the weekend is over, it also means a new week of unlimited potential lies ahead and I do hope this ideas will help you have a happy, productive and meaningful week:)

To Change or Not to Change?

I believe we absolutely can change, if we really want to.

The key is in deciding what it is about yourself that you want to change, and then stopping first to consider why.

I would never again want to change to make another person happy.

I actually believe it's impossible to make anyone else happy. We can each only make ourselves happy.

So changing in order to make someone happy is inevitably going to be frustrating and, likely, ineffective.

But changing because you want to make yourself happier, that to me is a worthy reason to change. And, really, the only worthwhile reason.

Life is good! 

-have a great week-

  7. Sometimes we have to change because we want to be a better person. I too don't want to change just to make someone happy.

  9. CHANGE is two-sided but as I grow old, I learned to live with this saying - things happen for a reason. So, I try to route myself to the positive side of CHANGE.

    HAVE a great week ahead, SunnyToast.

  23. this is true, though changing a person is indeed hard but sometimes we can, even to ourselves we can change it but it will take a lot of time. However, if you have faith then i believe it would all come true.

  29. hello there my pretty sunny toast. I've missed this blog. I've been MIA due to lack of decent internet connection, but I'm so back.

    Well, changing for someone can sometimes be good if you will improve yourself along the way. Yet changing yourself just to make someone happy even if you think it will not do you any good is bad.

    You right, of course when you say, we should change to make ourselves happy. It really feels great if you know you can be happy on you're own.

  31. I am on the process of changing these days. I used to be a very active church-goer. So now, I am reverting back to something I used to do. Well maybe.. that's a good change! :D

  32. Change should always be something you want, never only about other people. But I also think that sometimes it's important to compromise yourself when there's something more important.
