It only takes one person to change your life: you, beautiful you

it only takes one personChange.  What does it mean?  When we change we transform something, someone, ourselves into something or someone different.

Whew.  This is quite the mouthful of limitless profundity.  Change, glorious change.  And it all starts with you.

Change is transformation.  It indicates movement and growth.  Spirals and pinwheels and vortices.  A maelstrom of tilt-a-swirl.  Sometimes, change means contributing beyond yourself.  Other times, change means discovering something really surprising about yourself.  We experience change when we laugh and when we cry. When we offer our seat to someone else on the bus.  When we say hello to the lone kite flyer in the park.  When we sell our house and try the nomadic life on for a time.  When we say yes to Adventure.  When we say no to Adventure.

No matter our perceptions of the moment, change takes us to where we are right now.

A question: Do you take change for granted?  I realize that it would be metacognitively implosive to cultivate enough mindfulness in order to keep track of all of the changes in your life, but what is your awareness of the many changes that take place in a week, a day, an hour, a snippet of a moment?  Am I paying attention to the changes in my universe?  Should I be writing them down?  Mapping them forward on life’s path?  Am I over-thinking all of this?     

One last question: Where do you want to go?  What small, sustainable change might you make today to take you where you want to go?

Wait, one last question: What is holding you back?  What is keeping you from making that change?  “It only takes one person to change your life ~ YOU.”  Have fun today appreciating the changes that you are creating and experiencing and fulfilling.

You are a beautiful person.

    This is both beautiful and inspiring. Remember to search around you and see what you can find that inspires you to seek out beauty and wonderful things. We are all beautiful people and we should share that with everyone around us, so that they can see the beauty they have in themselves. Create, share your creations and live a life that inspires other! Creativity lives.


    • Yes! I like the way you have said this! It is so important that we seek that beauty that allows us to be creative and to inspire others. Some days there is simply so much abundance all around us. I once read a bumper sticker on a scooter when I was traveling that has really stuck with me: Cultivate Mindfulness. So simple, right? Yet so complex at the same time — if we aren’t paying attention. I also like what you say about sharing. So important! Your blog really inspires me to pick up a paintbrush, sit down at the computer, pick up an instrument. Being creative is just so important. Thank you for all of your wonderful inspiration!!


      • I’m so humbled by your comments. I love that bumper sticker and you are right so simple yet very profound. I think as artist that is what we must do, share the creativity that we have inside to inspire and enlighten. Thank you for your kindness and allowing me to share how you inspire creativity. 🙂
