I wasn’t planning on putting out a post today but I had time after all so here it is:
While out and about yesterday I saw this quote on a church sign,
“Change does not happen by chance but by choice.”
So many of us wish our lives were different but we don’t do anything to make those changes happen. We wish we had a different job but don’t actually look for anything. We wish we had more friends but we sit in the house night after night avoiding the places where friendships could be forged. Some of us (not me) wish we could lose weight but we sit on the couch every night with a bag of potato chips.
Change will not fall out of the sky and into your lap. Change does not happen by wishing upon a star or throwing salt over your shoulder. It does not happen if you blow on a dandelion or find a four-leaf clover. Change occurs when you take action. It happens when you make it happen through hard work. Changes are made when you take risks, try new things and move out of your comfort zone. Putting yourself out there makes others take notice and see a person who’s not afraid of living their best life.
Be Pretty, Plus and Proud and go after what you want; make the changes happen! It is through change that you mature, grow and become the best version of yourself possible. Be brave and get off the couch!
