Positive Monday: Take a look in the mirror and make that change




We speak of changing others, but not of making a change within ourselves. We speak of someone coming into our lives to change it for the better, but why not start with us? Why not start with the man/woman within?

Most of us are not happy with the way life is panning out. We’re too thin, too fat, too tired, too old, too this, too that. We want joy and happiness, but don’t know how to seek it and thus we keep going down that road of unhappiness. We feel empty, unfulfilled and tend to make others around us miserable.

But it doesn’t always have to be this way.

Change is something that happens over time (it takes time to transform into a whole new you), but once you’re willing to change the negatives about your life and replace them with the positives, it will shine through and be a beacon to others. Be the change you want to see. Be the change that will make you feel good about life and self. Be the change that will benefit not only you but the others around you.

Starting with the you in the mirror, be that change today.

I’m gonna make a change
For once in my life
It’s gonna feel real good
Gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
No message could’ve been any clearer
If you want to make the world
a better place
Take a look at yourself
Then make a change

The Firefly Who Wanted To Be A Star

Together, we can make our voices heard and change the world. Wonderful write from Mr. Lonely Author. 🙂

The Lonely Author


The Firefly Who Wanted To Be A Star

Once there was a tiny
firefly who wanted to
glow upon this world.
A task impossible for
one lonesome bulb.

Every night she shined
so bright yet she never
became a star. Until all
her little friends joined in
 to illuminate the dark.

One firefly alone could
never change a world,
but thousands working
together can create a
universe here on Earth.

My wife found this image in Google and asked me to write a poem about the Firefly who wanted to be a star.

I’ve noticed little changes here and there lately,

and it sometimes irks me.

See, I’m not sure if I’m ready for the big change

As I still prefer my comfort zone,

although deep down inside I am itching to move on.

I want to move on to bigger things,

I want to move on to better things,

But I am afraid that I’ll lose who I am if I adapt to the big change

that is manifesting within me.

I’ve wasted a few years of my life by allowing opportunities pass me by and shrugging it off easily as I confidently grin and say, ‘No hard feelings. They’ll come back.’ Sure, some of them came back, but when I think back now, I think I was ignorant all because I was scared to do big scary things. And if I wasn’t so scared of doing those big scary things in the first place, my life would have been the adventure that I am seeking now. I now try to see myself in different places, in different roles, doing different things.

I’m saying to take risks and don’t be afraid of positive changes in your life. You might like them.
