Rainy day here… Although the skies were gray, I understood something about life today.
We change – or only make changes – when the consequences of staying the same are heavier than we are willing to bear.
Most of us start taking care of our health because of a health scare, we get out of bad relationships when we know staying in it means death (literally or figuratively), we change our bad behaviors with others when the prospect of loneliness become too real for comfort.
It’s most unfortunate though. If we were to build a mindset where respect (for self and others) is within the top 3 priorities, we would not need these wake-up calls we all seem to wait before doing something about it.
Let’s try it… a little bit more respect for self and others every day.
