#WQWWC โ€“ Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge โ€“ โ€œCHANGEโ€

writers quote wednesday writing challenge

Hi, everybody! It’s that time again! Time to get your quote selected so you can come up with a creative story, poem, or whatever else you would like to share about your quote.

Ronovan is in charge this week and he chose the theme of:

“Change”

Please make sure to link to Ronovan’s postย HERE.ย Here is my contribution for this week on the theme of “change.”

The first thing I thought of when I saw this quote by Dean Jackson was the realization that personal growth is change. Think about the number of times you have experienced personal growth in your life. If you are like me, you failed forward. I personally look back and see that my path has always been in a forward direction with some deviations that became life lessons. Growth is change.

I also remember the friends I drifted away from because they chose to stay on their current path. I moved forward when they did not. Like the quote above, they wanted me never to change. They insisted I stay in that moment of time with them, a stagnant place. A place of no growth. I could not do that, I had to move forward and change. I felt like it was my destiny.

When I retired at 55, I thought I had lost my place in the world. I still had much to give, I just couldn’t figure out how to do it. I really had to sit down and figure out how to move forward. I had to change.

I knew writing was my future and I chose the path to move forward and have another career. I was finally going to do what I had dreamed of my whole life!

AND, I did. I started this blog and began to learn from all of you. I felt like a sponge soaking up the knowledge and the creativity that drifted in this part of our virtual world. I began to grow because I chose to change.

So I believe change is all about choices. But bewareโ€ฆ you can make the wrong choice, and the change can be for the worse. I have always said, “life is not about finding yourselfโ€ฆ life is about recreating yourself. It is your choice.

I am sorry I am so late this week taking part in my own challenge! After finishing that first draft of my book, I was exhausted! Exhilarated and Exhausted, is a better way to say it. I need a few days to get back on my feet and play in my garden. I feel a great “change” in my karma!

Thanks for stopping. It means the world to me! โค

  1. I think sometimes others believe they know what’s best for us. They can’t see we have that dream inside. They don’t understand the need to follow a dream and see what it can become. I, too, am learning to let go of what was/the stagnancy of it all, and to go forward. I’m glad to see you’re following your dream as well!! Wishing you the best!!

    1. Traci, that is so true… Plus you have to make a living! I was so glad to leave my accounting career behind. I love the rules and order but the boredom! Writing makes me happy! Glad to share my journey with you, friend! ๐Ÿ’—

  2. I love your quotes. I have a picture of a caterpillar looking up at a butterfly and saying “Who me?” I have experienced change as you describe it. That’s why my blog name is VivaCHANGE77. Seventy-seven is the age I was when when I began my blog and discovered what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.
