Evolution of self

Isn't it fun to watch others evolve into something greater than they are??? Transformation of self is so fun to watch and be a part of. It's amazing to be an outsider in an individuals life and watch them grow whether they realize what is happening or not. Of course it takes time and willingness to change, learn and grow and not everyone is ready for it.

Over the years I have had an amazing job involving giving individuals the tools to transform their lives as well as increasing their awareness of themselves and the world around them. I think people in general want to change others and make them see the world through their eyes and thoughts. Although it's really hard to resist those human urges I try my hardest to not allow my personal thoughts and feelings cloud my teachings or their individuality. I repeatedly tell myself that it is not my place to change them only give them the tools to change themselves if they want to. Expectations of others can lead to a clouded haze of disappointment.

With that being said although the paragraph above speaks of my professional life I practice (to the best of my ability) this in my personal life as well. I have been with my spouse for 13 years and it's been amazing to observe our growth as a couple and as individuals over the years. Of course it ebbs and flows but in the end it's all worth it and I am glad to be a part of this evolution process. Especially standing on the outside looking in.......
