Becoming the best version of yourself

Change Is Good – Maybe?

on September 8, 2015

JFK is quoted as saying, “Change is the law of life . . . and those who only look to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”

This is a lot like a prior post I wrote about saying that you can’t go “forward” in life, if you’re constantly looking in the rear view mirror.

However, this is really more about the future and what making changes in your life can do to affect that same future.

Is change the law of life?  Maybe.  After all things that don’t change just become stagnant and stale.  Picture stagnant and stale standing water – yuk; turns green and smells bad.  Do you want to turn green and smell bad?  Probably not.

Lately I’ve been making many changes in my life, some by choice, some not – but still – change.  The jury is still out whether or not this is going to make much difference in how I perceive myself and my future – but I have to try.

I know for sure that dwelling in the past is not good, and I’ve felt very successful in putting most of that negative energy behind me.  Every day is a new chance to make changes for your future.  Baby steps to giant leaps – it’s worth giving it a shot.

JFK had great visions of our future and he challenged our country to look into that direction.  So if today you have “one direction” to look – make it forward into a brighter and happier future.

    You are going to kick me for this, but I find it very odd that you would use John Kennedy as an example. As far as a man living in our White House and having an affair, on going with Marilyn Monroe, he would be the last person I would use to base any part of my life on. He makes my ex husband look great and your’s probably, also.

    • Totally see your point, and really the blog post was not based on “the man” himself, or his character – but rather on his thoughts on looking ahead, and working toward a better future. I’m sure if he’d been able to see his future he might’ve made different decisions along the way. I wonder why they continue to cheat, when inevitably they always get found out?
