Life is only interesting when something surprises you, when there is something new and strange in your life to discover. The new and strange things in your life are what sets human life apart from the rest in the world. Reply to this message Kat Moulder December 2, 2010 at 7:50 pm It is very true. And although sometimes we do not like surprises, surprises are the most unique way to express your true feelings at the moment, whatever it may be. I have really enjoyed this class and as for me, this was a surprise. I tend to get bored easily with work outs and have pushed the idea of yoga away but the more I have done it and practiced it the more I have come to enjoy it. I have found it to be mentally and physically benefiting me and I would like to get more into it and learn other types of yoga as well. It was a pleasure. Thank you. Reply to this message Thalia Calvillo December 6, 2010 at 4:14 pm This quote represents what has happened in my life these past two years. In the past two years I have changed in so many ways and have realized that everyone changes throughout the years. In the past years i have become a stronger person due to the challenges life has presented me with, i have become more mature, changed my ways of thinking, and have changed my personality. I used to be this quiet, shy girl who never really said a word and now i am more outgoing and more open to striking up a conversation with a total stranger. Life will always give you challenges that will change who you are, but it also gives you strange things to see. Those strange things that you encounter make you who you are. Life would be boring without the exciting and terrifing things that you encounter. Everyone changes whether it be for good or worse, but no one ever stays the same. you become wiser and stronger as you grow up and learn to appreciate the little things in life. Reply to this message Kristen Kesner December 9, 2010 at 1:30 am I love this quote! There will always be change in our lives and whether it is good or bad changes you have to go with the flow and be an easy spirit. Life is a balancing act and we all have to find that right nook where change can come and go easily. Reply to this message Allyson Nicholson December 9, 2010 at 11:16 am I really like this quote and I find it very inspiring. I believe that what he is saying is that sometimes change is necessary to help a person evolve. When he says “to something new, to something strange” I think he means that new things are usually strange because they are unfamiliar and its uncomfortable like starting a new job or starting at a new school because you don’t know what to expect, but sometimes that can be an exciting feeling. Reply to this message Kimbery Wallbank March 18, 2011 at 11:35 am Excellent site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get feedback from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Appreciate it! Reply to this message Aris Fuller August 9, 2011 at 6:47 pm As a 20 year old college student, Im just now getting used to change! It’s not always welcomed or wanted be in life I will learn to live with the changes there are to come my way. awesome website to keep people inspired. Reply to this message Rockie Jo Hill May 8, 2012 at 12:24 am To me change can be scary. Changing homes. Changing schools. Changing yourself. It’s new and strange to you at first but in the end change is good. It helps you to explore and learn about new ideas in life. Sometimes people need change in order to escape and heal themselves emotionally. Change is life’s way of being exciting. Reply to this message Shauntel Villarreal August 9, 2012 at 8:41 am I like this quote and it couldn’t be truer in my life than right now. Not a lot of people like change whether it be in a relationship, hairstyle, job. I’m guilty of being scared of change, especially when it comes to relationships. I tend to cling on to something until the last possible string, even though it’s something you should have changed months ago. “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” ? Marilyn Monroe I wanted to share that Marilyn quote with you because I believe it kind of goes hand in hand with the topic of change. It’s one of my favorite quotes by her, if only I could actually apply it to certain situations! Reply to this message Cheyenne Shipwash May 14, 2014 at 7:51 pm Change is something that happens everyday, and even though I still find myself feeling a bit on edge whenever I have something change in my life. I am taking change day by day and knowing that someday I’ll take a step forward. Reply to this message Lark Applewhite May 14, 2014 at 8:15 pm I am open to change, but I am a bit hesitant.. I don’t enjoy the fact that my life can change in almost a second but I think that the idea of change can also be inviting and some times you can be excited for the new things to come in and out of your life. Reply to this message Delwin J Brown May 15, 2014 at 12:02 am This quote summarizes the first quarter of this wonderful year. Finding fitness! Not only through Yoga practice but basketball and weight training has allowed me to find my true passion. I love health, nutrition, and helping people develop the best version of themselves. A lot of the things I experienced took me completely out of my comfort zone. Some even took me to the point of failure but before I had the chance there was life at the end of the tunnel. I believe that everyone has the ability to change and improve their quality of life. The change can only come from inside “you” and only you. Reply to this message Sara Jeffcott December 8, 2014 at 11:04 pm I like this a lot, it is very true. Sometimes you need to change some things up in your life. some times it’s who you’re dating, what you’re wearing, who you’re hanging out with. Sometimes change is just a good thing, it might be weird at first, but one should alway be open to the idea of change.
