Yesterday I was clever so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself. Rumi
This quotation is one of my favourites – short and to the point!
I spend many years fighting everything, building a bigger soap box, wanting to change things, people, the world!
It wore me out and nearly drove me insane.
When I reached the point, on the cusp of madness or genius, the lightbulb lit up, bright and clear.
At that point, on that cusp, so finely balanced, lay wisdom and I realised that the only way I was going to change my world was by going within and changing myself.
I have never looked back!

And actually that’s the best way!
🙂 Thanks for commenting.
Great, thanks for looking 🙂
Useful. Thank You.
I agree with you completely because if you can’t change your self how do you expect others to change. Once you have changed it doesn’t matter whether the others have changed or not.
Absolutely! So liberating 🙂
