The words by Christina Rossetti’s seem so poignant presently as we embrace this whole new world of change. The words suggest suffering and I guess in the end that’s a decision we elect to make.
We have the ability to chose to suffer or to chose to embrace change. We create our reality from the perspective we chose to adopt.
As I read the poem I’m unsure whether she is a catalyst and accepting change like an embryo breaking free from an egg shell and preparing to pivot.
Its not wrong to hark for the past momentarily but to lament for something that’s gone such as our teenage years; is to succumb to a destiny that cannot be fulfilled. It’s not in your privilege.
So don’t suffer because you decide not to change or the route you desire is not just difficult but impossible . No simply and plainly alter your course to attain your change. Don’t hark to be a teenager but enjoy being wiser, experienced and youthful.
Take regular exercise, eat nutritiously and sleep well and in doing so become younger and change your perception and let that become your reality by taking action and be willing to change.
Do you have a favourite poem or aphorism about change?
Was suffering a catalyst important for your change?
