The Only Way to Change

I saw a great movie recently, called ‘Everything must go’ which starred Will Farrell. It was a dramatic, sad story and kind of depressing but I loved the hopeful note it left on which was that anyone can get a fresh new start, shed their old stuff, their old life and faded memories. Anyone can head into their future as a new person who is ready to start over, start a new journey. He was very convincing in this troubled, serious role and I was surprised.

The movie had a similar tone to ‘Ghostworld,’ which also features a garage sale and the ending of one part of life and the beginning of another. It had a fresh realness to it, just like Ghostworld. The future can be scary and intimidating, but it can also bring lots of hope. You can choose to become someone new at any time.

It’s like my old meditation teacher used to say, ‘The only way to change, is to change.’ You simply have to make up your mind and do it. To become tired of your old life and decide to become someone better, someone else.
