Living Life

Consistently Changing

With the rains, good maintenance and feeding, the growth in the summer months has been vital. The shrubs and trees have spread a lot of new branches and leaves that will need to be carried through the winter months. We’ve fallen into autumn, and now is the time to do some clearing, pruning, and shaping of the shrubs and trees in my garden.

Just like autumn transitions summer into winter, I too hope for personal change that will make me a better me. Personally, I want to positively advance and develop to make a difference in my immediate surroundings, thus my world. Mahatma Gandhi said, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” I take this as an encouragement to implement the right kind of changes in order to make my world a beautiful place. I’m further reminded, if we want to see a change in any environment, we should look at ourselves first. I know that I must work on myself and do the necessary clearing and maintenance to realize positive change. I am quite aware of negative change that can be brought about if we don’t care and don’t maintain, allowing the weeds to take over, allowing things to get contaminated, through regression and rot. This can be likened to accepting negative change and allowing for destruction to settle in.

Sadly, in many instances, people implement change only to destroy. Wouldn’t it be better to embrace change that brings about good for us and society? Let’s embrace change that is for the better. I hope that we’ll adapt to change that will allow us to act out of kindness. Kindness that will have a ripple effect for good, where we all live in love and peace.

Constant change for the better

Ever changing as the season

Like leaves forced, swept away

Hanging on, resisting the change

Change that comes persistently

Change that comes even forcefully

Change we will, ceaselessly

I have had a real desire to work with people for a long time and have always been fascinated with human behaviour and understanding how the mind works.
I love the following quote by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. “Remember that children, marriages and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get”

Thank you for sharing!!.. change is the law of life and believe that most of us do adjust and change to some degree in order to know happiness, as does nature… “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” ( Maria Robinson )… 🙂

Believe those who do not want change are creating the conflicts in this world today and as Vince Gill said “let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me” and with today’s technology believe we can make this world a better place and we, as individuals, will feel better about ourselves.. 🙂

Thank you for sharing your lovely poem and a part of your world and until we meet again..
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life’s passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
(Irish Saying)
