Confucius said, “They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.” His words are a powerful reminder that in order to further unlock our journey’s joy and enlightenment, we must open ourselves to the transformative power that life’s challenges, possibilities and opportunities offer.
The pursuit of happiness and wisdom is a journey filled with continuing change. It is a winding journey of self-discovery and learning. Change, while sometimes daunting and challenging, provides an opportunity to step out of our comfort zones and confront the unknown. It is this step that opens our eyes, mind and hearts to new possibilities within ourselves, life and the abundance of the world we do not yet know.
It is during these moments, however, that our resilience and determination are put to the test. Hold tightly to your goals and dreams. Remember Nelson Mandela’s wise counsel, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” Embrace change with an open heart and an indomitable fearless spirit. Remember the words of Rumi, “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” With unwavering intentionality and resilience, overcome obstacles and continue to achieve your greatest potential.
May Confucius’ words echo in your heart, “They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.” Remember always that life’s journey is not about finding a fixed state of happiness or wisdom, but rather it is a constant process of growth and adaptation.
Pause now for a moment… just a brief moment. What change will you choose that will further your happiness and wisdom? Take the road less traveled? Make your own road? There is so much left to discover. Your best is yet to come!
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
