Quotes about change

In this post I am sharing a few quotes about change, since this is my year of change.  🙂  Perhaps they will speak to you or remind you of another quote that has been meaningful to you.

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.Maya Angelou

Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.  – Unknown

All you change is yourself, but sometimes that changes everything!  Gary W. Goldstein

Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.       Jim Rohn

 

The above quotes are inspiring and encouraging. One thing I want to add is that what I’ve found in my own life is that my efforts to change myself usually end up as a source of discouragement and disappointment, which I think is what often happens to many people who make new year’s resolutions. However, if I let the Lord change me it becomes a reality. A heart change is a real change. It may seem as if I have changed myself when it is the Lord changing me. I like that. 

Do you have any inspiring quotes to share about change?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

  2. Someone who was going through a difficult (but not health-related) situation with her daughter told me, “I must accept what I cannot change.” It kept the peace in their family.

    • Thanks for sharing that, Carol, it’s a good one to live by. It reminds me of the serenity prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
