The 3 Words That Changed My Life

I sat by my brother’s bedside long after he was taken off life support. Finally I took off my bracelet and wrapped it around his wrist. I left the bracelet with him but I still didn’t understand the importance of the words engraved on it.

Be The Change

I didn’t realize the impact of those words until they started following me.

I saw them again and again, everywhere. But what did they really mean? It would take years for that mystery to unravel for me but once I realized what that really meant.

Many of us long to be different. We think if we could be different we would feel happier. If I looked different, if I were thinner or smarter or something else then I would be more loveable…and people wouldn’t leave me.

It’s heavy. It’s hard to have those thoughts.

From the outside most people thought I had my shit together. But a few key people in my life said “you are not okay.” And I didn’t believe them. I had developed a coping mechanism called avoidance.

I wanted to be strong for my family. I wanted to hold it together because they had so much to deal with.

My brother’s wife and children, my parents, my own husband and children. So many people who needed me to stay strong. But in order to do that I was becoming numb.

One day I broke apart and the true meaning of “Be The Change” became clear to me. Do I want to stay numb? Do I want to stop myself from experiencing what life has to offer?

The change starts with me.

Not everything is under our control but a lot more is than we think. When we play victim to our thoughts we think there is no other choice but to be depressed and have constant anxiety.

Be the change for others, for yourself, for your family.

It starts with you.

Every moment of every day you have a choice. You can choose different.

The choice is ours.

And now that I have been the change in my own life I am able to give that to others through my work.

In fact, one of my clients is now sharing those tools with her husband. It spreads and ripples as people learn how to be the change in their own lives.

The mind is malleable and can change. We aren’t trapped the way we think we are.

It can be scary and overwhelming to realize the control we have over our own lives. It takes a lot of inner work, but it is so worth it.

When you’re at the end of your life do you want to be able to say I did everything to enjoy this one life? Or do you want to have to acknowledge that you stayed small because you were afraid to feel.

You have everything you need.

Everything you need to be your own change is within you but it helps to have a guide along the way. When the student is ready the teacher appears. And the next teacher for you might be right here. I’ve been a victim to my own thoughts. I got past it and I can help you to get past it too.
