“You don’t have to move mountains. Simply fall in love with life. Be a tornado of happiness, gratitude and acceptance. You will change the world just by being a warm, kind-hearted human being.” ~ Anita Krizzan
Change – lasting, life-altering, world-healing change can seem so impossible, so unachievable, and yet…
“You don’t have to move mountains. Simply fall in love with life. Be a tornado of happiness, gratitude and acceptance. You will change the world just by being a warm, kind-hearted human being.“
I know, I know, you must be thinking “yeah, right. There is no way it can be that simple!”. I don;t blame you one bit. I’ve thought the exact same thing. But guess what? It actually is just that simple, or at least it would be if we allowed it to be that simple. That’s the real catch here.
For change to take place, you must be willing to let go. You must be open and ready to set down those mountains we insist upon carrying and you must agree to allow yourself to be just as you are, right here, right now. You need to stop judging, stop finding lack, stop labeling parts of your being as weaknesses or flaws. Just ease up and let yourself be. Just breathe.
Once you begin to do that, you’ll find yourself falling in love with life. All sorts of soft, gentle, soul-warming things will be noticed and will fill you up. Life will still have it’s difficulties, it’s hardships and whatnot, but the lovely, little things will be more at the forefront and you’ll find that they will begin to fortify and heal you.
As this goes on, you’ll take note of even more change, change that isn’t change so much as a shift in focus, a shift in purpose. You’ll be more grateful as you rejoice and take delight in all the small and large wonders that life holds. You’ll find reasons to give thanks and to see your life, your person, you soul with compassion and love. You’ll begin to find a flexibility in your attitude towards yourself and others. A sort of softhearted kindness that holds understanding for the human experience we are all kin in. And before you know it, you will be a force, a tornado of this happiness, gratitude and acceptance.
I get it, I know. I’ve been doing my very best to implement this sort of change in my life for quite some time now. Some days I feel the power of it in full force as I flow inward and outward with warm compassion and kind-heartedness. Other days it’s much more difficult, almost impossible, and yet I can still feel the flow of it reminding me to set those mountains down and simply climb them to see the vistas they provide. It’s worth the struggle, but there is no need to make it harder, you know?
This world of ours, both our own personal world and the larger, outer world we all share, can and will be changed, and for the better. All we need do on our part is to flood it with compassion as we do our best to be warm, kind-hearted human beings. It really is that simple if you allow it to be. The real question is will you?
