You that you couldn’t imagine

Once upon a time, my room was a mess.

Once upon a time, I took only steaming hot showers.

Once upon a time, I didn’t meditate.

Once upon a time, I didn’t write.

Now my room is fairly organized, I take cold showers, I meditate, and I write.

I chose to list these behaviors because they may elicit discomfort, not because they may be culturally celebrated.

The point is that a teenager me wouldn’t be able to imagine the current me.

And, my current me probably can’t imagine who I’ll be 10 years from now.

We sometimes underestimate ourselves. We think change is too hard.

I could never do that!

Yes, you could. That is just on the other side of a gradual change.

We can change. One day, one habit, one relationship at a time.

Don’t think you can’t, and don’t fear to take the reins. Today.
