The man in the mirror

Change.  Some people hate it.  Others love it.

It’s nothing new.  Society is continuously evolving.

Thankfully, in our society we have the opportunity to make change.  If we don’t like our job, we can find another one.  Not a fan of the current government, than exercise your right to vote.

It seems everywhere I look these days, people are talking about the changes they are making in their lives.  Significant and minor.  In their own lives and in others.  It’s both motivating and reassuring. They make reflecting on your own life that much easier.

But there are also those that would rather bitch about whatever it is that’s driving them crazy rather than making any changes.  You know, the people we avoid at cocktail parties.  The reason we pay for call display.  Because they complain to everyone they meet and anyone who will listen.  After all, in their minds, there is always something preventing them from making a positive change.  And it’s called, themselves.

In fact, Michael Jackson says it so well.

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change
