** CHANGE (v.) make different; cause a transformation
CHANGE is always a good thing--
that's what many would often say.
But for some of us, change is a scary word.
It is overwhelming, like a drowning force that can sink us.
Especially when we are not yet ready for it,
or when we are caught off guard by it.
At times we push ourselves to change not because we want to,
but just simply because we have to.
That's a hard phase to undergo.
Harder even is when the change is forced into us.
When we are left with nothing to do but to deal with it.
What we fail to realize at times is that we change everyday.
We constantly find new ways to fix ourselves,
to tramp the old versions of us.
We change to survive and to get through the day.
We change and we render a new and better us,
and we hope that this new one would be suffice somehow.
For people's noblest endowment is our capacity to change.
Armed with reason-- we can see two sides and get to choose.
We can be divinely wrong,
but being wrong is also one of our most telling gifts.
We have the right to be wrong,
but we don't have the right to linger still.
Life is so short and fast that we cannot afford it.
We cannot just wait, we cannot just hold off.
Not particularly because we want to postpone what we sure is inevitable.
By reason, we must choose, we must decide, we must change.
Change is hard.
Change may take a lot of time.
Sometimes, it may even consume all of our hearts--
but we must not lurk when we know otherwise.
Change maybe everything that scares us,
but we must decide to start somehow.
For there must always be a start for something new.
So believe in your ability to change.
Believe that you are capable of attaining something better.
Believe without fear that you can.
