I agree. Sort of. We hear these ideas parroted pretty much 24/7. These old and crusty mental treats have been chewed on by the populace since the first caveman realized the red chicken tasted just like the white chicken.....and that chicken tastes like pigeon...sort of. When we tune in to the media we see politicians gridlocked (they love it!), trouble in the Middle East (shocking!), and commercials for the latest diet craze or pill (because the old ones obviously didn't work) among thousands of other examples of brain cramping inefficiency. It's frustrating when things seem wrong, out of control or lost in Limbo.
The idea of Change for the sake of Change seems like a pretty viable political slogan. I think someone should try it ;)
The truth is that things do need to change....and they will. Naturally. And they will contiue to change all the time. Sometimes Nature can use a little push now and then, but you would be surprised how quickly and easily the tides will shift from low to high if you follow Mr. McCartney's advice and just "Let it Be".
Right now my yard is sunny and filled with the scent of orange blossoms where last week it was just chilly gray skies perfumed with a hint of my neighbor's barbecue smell. I didn't have to yell at the tree to hurry up or protest with signs or motivate it with cheers. The time had just come. When the time is right and the conditions are ripe you will find your foot in the next step before you even know it. I think that cultural change, political change and personal change grow in the same way. Create the right conditions for the soil and flowers bloom by themselves.
Why do I bring this all up? Because it is time to spring forward and try something new. Dye your hair, try some sushi, go to a line dancing class....or not. Maybe it's time to paint the house a little bit. I encourage you to see what kind of profound change is possible in your home or business with Painted Poetry. Sometimes even the smallest change can make a huge difference.
