Why is change so hard?

Hey thereβ˜ΊπŸ™‹, Yet again another #BlogMondays 😊😊. Read on bloggers;

I’m sure that everyone has an aspect of their life that they would want to change. I cannot deny that there are many many aspects of mine that I want to and will change. I keep telling myself that tomorrow is going to be another day for a fresh start but over the years that hasn’t helped me change those aspects. Maybe writing about it finally will cause some guilt and a little frustration enough for me to accomplish my goals πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…. Well then I’ll have to blog about my success…i cant wait….

Change is described as an act or instance of making or becoming different. An instance sounds so sudden though. Recently I tried the sudden approach to change one of my aspects however all my efforts went to the drain. So what should I do? Frustrated me now has an idea about how to deal with all this that I think will make all my problems disappear! Yes! How about if I stopped focusing, even after acknowledging, on that aspect that I want to change and just focused on what I want to achieve after the change only.  Maybe it will work, maybe not. But all I know is that once I figure out the feeling I’ll have after achieving my goals, the feeling ill want to have after achieving those goals, I will change for the better.
Notice however, that change can either be good or bad. Somehow!, for some weird reason, bad change is very easy to execute. Does this mean that we have to weigh the outcomes of every aspect we change? Yes! This takes us back to why we need to focus on that achievements we shall attain from change. Such we can make the right choices.

#ConfessionHere For instance I want to change in weightπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ. I want to gain some more weight because for some reason the last time I checked my BMI I was below average on the BMI scale. What? I have never accepted to be below averageβ€¦πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…hahah…turns out whether I accept or not, this time around I am below the average. So looking at and imagining how amazing I’ll feel when I’m finally at a normal BMI, I can already feel like I’m putting on more kgs. I can see a pot belly too. Hahahaha. πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽIt must working!
Dear pot belly, you had better not be one from a few drinks πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†. Otherwise Bakuwe Kyonywa.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ƒ

Anyway, Good luck in your change endevors!

  1. Salute Eng’r Derrick Muheki, I hope an extract from one of my indites will help you fathom more about change.

    “Today’s progress was yesterday’s plan. It’s not about perfect. It’s about effort. And when you bring that effort to every single day, that’s where transformation happens. That’s how change occurs. Little by little, a little becomes a lot. Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change themselves, or their minds, can hardly change anything.”

    In addition, we can hardly become better by fighting the old, but by building the new. Change is a law of life, and those who look forward to the future, or to the past, are certain to miss out on the PRESENT! So it is the small achievable habits practiced everyday that bring about immeasurable success in the long run. Just like building your father’s house. Sure enough, a few bricks were placed everyday consistently over a long period of time and now it stands to be the mansion that it is. Many felicitations on that spacious home by the way!!πŸ˜€πŸ˜€!!

    The same goes for failure, mistakes in judgment practiced every day. In the long run they result into insurmountable defeat. So successful change as well as failure is a game of numbers. It is all about the quality of the habits you constantly practice everyday over a long period of time.

    Don’t forget that bad habits are easy to get, but hard to live with, whilst successful or good habits are hard to get but easy to live with. According to the latest research about habits from the University College of London, it takes sixty six days of consistent daily practice to instal a new habit.

    I hope this helps a little bit in trying to understand change. Thanks a bunch for the blog. Keep the faith. GBU!!πŸ˜€πŸ˜€!!

    Don’t forget that Christ in the greatest change agent. So getting closer to him everyday, reading and practicing his word is basically good enough to evince change. Three cheers to you! GBU!!πŸ˜€πŸ˜€!!
