I read this on someone's status. I really liked it.
"Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become."
It's really hard to surrender what you are...in the sense that bad habits are hard to break and change is really scary. It's easier to say that I am something and will always be something then to shed that skin to become something better. I want to be the best me though and therefore need to face my fear and surrender.
