Really?

Nothing Changes Until I do

Nothing changes until I do.

Really?

Really.

I cannot control you or change you.

I am not responsible for what you think of me…although I am responsible for the manner in which I present myself to the world. In fact, it’s none of my business what you think of me.

When what the world mirrors back to me isn’t what I want or expect, I must ask myself, “What is my role in this?”

Nothing changes until I do.

And when I change, miraculously, so does the world around me…or maybe it’s just my perception of the world around me. Regardless, when I change, so does everything else.

The Serenity Prayer asks that I may be granted the wisdom to know the difference between the things I can and cannot change. I can change my clothes;  my address; my mind…but I cannot change you, nor how you think of me. I cannot change that people in my life will undergo hardship and die and a multitude of other things. I can, however, change how I accept and respond to those things.

Change is an inside job. I can change parts of me that do not serve my highest interests.

And ultimately, nothing changes until I do. Are there things in me that do not serve? Do I want to change those things?

Nothing changes until I do.
