Changing Direction

” To change ourselves effectively, we first had to change our perceptions.”

  • Stephen R. Covey

~ “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”.


Dear Fellow Journalers,

The month of September is the month of being open to change. Some people cannot deal with change. They obstinately dig in their heels and loudly demand that everything remain the same. Duh?? Not happen’!

Things change everyday. The key to dealing with change is to be open to it. Change your perceptions of the “thing” and you would be amazed at what happens.

Over the summer, I decided to change some things in my life. I made subtle changes to this blog (Have you noticed?). I had been attending a Book Chat Program at my local library. The group of 10+ women meet once a month to discuss a book we have read concerning the pre-determined theme. I had long wanted to join a book club and jumped at the chance to learn more about books, authors etc. While I keep journals, I never kept a journal of the books I have read (other than on Good Reads). I began reading some of the recommended books of my new friends and became interested in other genre. Change is good and, yes, I have a new journal!

If you want to change direction in your life you may need GPS. Wishing is nice but the real change takes work. Your GPS can be friends, family, bloggers, (couldn’t resist!) and others who share your interests. My advice is to take on one thing at a time or you risk becoming overwhelmed or discouraged.

What direction are you going in?
