When I look back at the things and people that have changed over the years, including my own conscience, I don’t think any of us “changed” as we grew older. Learning through the experiments and experiences that helped us win what we desired and took away what we could not preserve, we clearly became more of ourselves. Through that transition, we started following the pattern that worked best for us. Do you not agree?
People change behaviours that correspond best to their existing philosophies. Inanimate objects wither, wilt and rot to start again. It is strange that we take pride in being “unchanged” through the years. Have we not learnt anything from our mistakes or did no one ever inspire us to be different from following a pattern?
Take a step back and revisit the moments of time that have redefined your life today. In the words of Nelson Mandela, “There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”
Who knows you may be thankful to the person who moved your cheese!
