Bits of Wisdom About Change by Kimberly Sabatini

Bits of wisdom about change...


*Change isn't only about finding the place you've grown into. It's about leaving what no longer fits behind.


*Sometimes the starting line is more important than the finishing line.

*Change is uncomfortable--it's hard.

*Never changing feels safe because it's familiar, but it usually doesn't feel fabulous either.


*We change when we're ready.

*Often we are unprepared for change. It is forced upon us. It's then about what we do with it.

*Perhaps life altering mistakes are meant to alter lives.


*Change is mine.

  4. Andy Warhol's quote is my favorite, especially because he's right that you can't make people change unless they want to. I've never been good about changing or accepting change. Even when I go to my favorite restaurants I always order the same foods.
