Till date I have never bothered about change as much as I do now. I have received a lot of preaching and garnered decent knowledge on the same( just google about it and you will get zillions of people sharing their perspectives on change). Yet for me, it wasn’t until recently that I realised and got convinced as to why is it so important to accept and embrace change. Life has different ways of teaching how change is essential in order to grow and move forward in various aspects of itself. Then only can one reach his/her true destiny. I am not going to highlight the reasons of my realisations here as circumstances and events differ from person to person to bring about any change in one’s life.
What matters the most is that changes do take place and sometimes in good ways and other times in not so good ways. Anything related to change sounds so philosophical and sometimes unrealistic that it is almost impossible to believe at first that something or someone can change. Yet it is essential to accept and embrace change for one’s own mental peace and satisfaction. For if the mind is constantly agitated by all the changes, there will never be any clarity in whatever one does or thinks in order to move on. I understand very clearly now that embracing change shows one’s adaptability and flexibility to their surroundings and circumstances and more smoother and clearer their life path becomes.
There are so many instances in one’s own life that points to change being the only way forward, still resisting it seems to be the best option always. However, the more you resist, the more you get trapped in unnecessary worries, anxieties, anger and hatred and then you commit mistakes, sometimes small, other times grave, ultimately loosing out on people and things you love and care for most. Even then a part of me still believes that whatever is meant to be in your life will never go away from you and will come back to you in different ways and it applies to everything be it people, things, destiny and so on and so forth.
Well, sounds like I have started preaching now 😛
But ultimately this is the most important lesson I have learnt in my life so far and felt like sharing with everyone even though most of us are aware of it 🙂
On a lighter note, though I am not a die hard fan of Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of my takeaways from the movie Thor Ragnarok was the fact that Odin explains to Thor at the beginning of the movie, that of, “Ragnarok being inevitable”. Similarly, change is inevitable too. Something has to end in order to begin something new. It’s like a circle. Changes in one’s life has to take place so that finally one moves closer to his/ her life’s ultimate purpose and not deviate from it. Changes, always, mark the end of something and beginning of something new irrespective of good or bad. So go embrace the change and stop resisting it! And mind you, do keep the lessons learnt in the process with you, forever. Because nothing’s permanent and no matter how the situation around you is (good or bad), it will change.
