The Transformation


We all, at certain times in our life undergo a life changing event that can bring much hardship and distress to us. With it often comes physical and mental changes in the way we think and deal with daily life.

Just as when someone enters the military, they are pretty much unchanged for the first few days, regardless of how much they are yelled at or disciplined , they remain the same individual until they get the haircut and a uniform.

Suddenly, after receiving a shearing and the personality that identified them through their hair suddenly vanishes, they are transformed. No longer are they the person they were five minutes ago, now they are a unit, many transformed into one.

So it is in our daily lives, a total transformation always includes a physical transformation as well, you cannot have one without the other.
When we change on the inside, we also change on the outside, whatever is going on inside of us always comes to fruition on the physical level. That is why our physical appearance is so important.

Not that we all need to be,or can be a raving gorgeous specimen of human existence, but our appearance and demeanor do send a message to the outside world of what is going on inside us and our attitude to and of the world.

It is seen all the time, after an individual undergoes an extremely difficult situation in their life, they are transformed. Many times they look older and beaten for the experience, but many times they take on a new demeanor whereby they look and act much younger than they did earlier in life. They display as certain confidence and ease about themselves that reflect in their appearance. They become more attractive because of their attitude, more than physical characteristics.

The experience has had a positive effect on them and will enable them to avoid and deal with future issues in a more positive and understanding way. It is often  through these so-called negative experiences we learn and grow the most.

There is no such thing as a negative or positive experience, it is only our perception of it that is positive or negative. It is our responsibility and life mission to turn it into something that will enable us to life a better more fulfilling life.

I have found over the years that there is no such thing as reality, it is only how we perceive it. Each of us may have a different view of it because of our different beliefs and experiences. Two individuals can be sitting side by side, looking at the same event and “see” two entirely different outcomes based on their individual perceptions.

People living in two different environments will have a different perception of how things are or how they think things should be. For example, someone living in a warm southern California climate would not understand how anyone living in Michigan could take a young baby out on a cold sub-zero day and not have the child freeze to death. They would probably consider it child abuse, when in actuality, it is healthy for the child to be exposed to the elements as long as they are protected and kept warm.
