Change – It’s Not Going to be Easy!

November 8, 2012

There are times in our lives when we want things to be different.  It doesn’t matter what the difference is, we all have our own versions of what it is that we want to change.

Some changes are small and some of the changes are massive.  The trouble is, change can sometimes be hard for us.  It is about doing something new, that something may even be outside our comfort zone.  For some, it may be eating better.  For others, it may be exercise, it may be quitting smoking, or even taking some time for ourselves.  Even though the change may be unique for each of us, the emotions, frustrations, hiccups can be experienced by us all.  It is important to remember what Art Williams said:

“I’m not telling you it is going to be easy

I’m telling you it’s going to be worth it“

Art Williams

When we want to make changes we are often breaking a past habit.  It may be important to remember that many things we do are habits, so why not make them good habits.

There is another saying that I love by John McGrath which is:

Remember, there’s always going to be

some pain in life.

I choose the pain of discipline, to create a

balanced life that I love living, rather than the

pain of regret of a life half-lived.

Because I know that the pain of regret

is a hell of a lot greater.

It’s a fantastic saying, and so true, too.  If you need to place this somewhere nearby to keep you motivated then do so.
