Each of us is in a different place in our spiritual journey. Some of you may be farther along, and some may be seeking guidance and support. One of the lessons that took me a long time to learn, was the concept of change. For many years I tried to change myself into someone other people would accept. No matter how hard I tried to change, I never found the kind of acceptance that made me feel good about myself. That's because we cannot change who we are. We can change the way we think about things. We can change what we believe. Most importantly, we can change how we feel about ourselves.
From my experience, I would define "change" as the evolution or expansion of who you already are. It's accepting and playing with your own unique quirks. Be more of who you already are, do more of what you already love, and give more of what you love giving. The joy that comes with that, will bring the self-acceptance and social acceptance you already crave and you won't have to sell your soul to do it.
