Let´s keep in mind that change is a universal constant, absolutely everything is changing constantly. I am not the same person that I used to be 10, 5 or a year ago and that´s something I am very grateful for. It doesn´t matter where we come from, what we had or didn´t have, everything is our choice at any given moment. Once we decide it is enough of something, the transitions occurrs gradually. Change is not an event, but a process that takes place through time.
'Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."
"When asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered; Man.... Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.
- Dalai Lama
