.: CHANGE! :.


What is CHANGE?

No, I don't mean the 80 cents coin the Aunty selling the loveliest nasi lemak outside my office when I give her two pieces of 1 ringgit note.

I meant the action of undergoing transition or transformation.

Like during the Malaysia's general elections held last year. Many hoped that the political tsunami was the answer to the many obviously dissatisfied voters. Many hoped for CHANGE.

Many girls, after marrying a guy, would hope that her husband would CHANGE his ways albeit all his annoying habits! (yeah right, wishful thinking)

Or when a guy marries a girl, hoping the princess he married doesn't CHANGE to be the White Witch in disguise.

One thing is for sure...

We always hope for a CHANGE for the better.

How many times have we heard "I wish [insert name of person/organisation/bodies/government agencies] would do [insert a list of actions that needs to be taken] so that we could live in a better society or so that our lives would be much better or so that the World can be a better place. "

But we very often forget this ONE basic fundamental thing.

Look into a mirror and remember this - that often CHANGE should always begin with the person look right back at you.


CHANGE to start with you.

Our contribution may be small individually.

But if each individual takes that small step to CHANGE his or her ways - to be a lil bit more kinder, a lil bit more caring, a lil bit more compassionate, a lil bit more empathetic ; then collectively these small lil CHANGE would really make the world a better place.

So this is your opportunity to make that difference.

Start to CHANGE the man/woman in the mirror.

I'm starting with the man in the mirror

I'm asking him to change his ways

And no message could have been any clearer

If you wanna make the world a better place

Take a look at yourself and then make that change
