“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”

A Prayer for Change
While looking at my blog today, I chanced upon a section of the dashboard I hadn’t noticed before. It showed the search terms people had used most to find my blog online. It shocked me to realise what it meant.
The two top terms were:
Prayer for change in my life
If ever there was a cry for help, both these terms are screaming it from the rooftops! #Prayer for change and seeking empowerment!
For two decades I have delivered life changing workshops and seminars all over my country on exactly these topics, and the cry has been the same:
“I expected more out of life than this, by now!”
I have heard it from teenagers, from young disillusioned couples, from parents with teenage kids, and from retirees, who were struggling still, after a lifetime of struggle. A prayer for change, if ever there was one!
When we were in school, we were told, and probably you were too: “Study hard, get good grades, get a good job and have a good life!” Well, these people all followed those directions and by the time they came to my workshops, that is how they felt – ripped off! It was a lie, and they had fallen for it! And now, they have this prayer for change!
There’s nothing wrong with having a good education and getting a good job. However, that’s not it – that’s just the start! Your education continues and it’s a lifelong program you are enrolled in! The school of life is never on holidays – it always has something to teach you! The question is – are you ready, willing and able to learn?
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”

For those people searching for a prayer for change, here is mine – click on this link for the whole blog:
A day that I could begin by being of service to another, to start their day also with inspiration and love.
A day when I could plan and begin projects – dreams that could take all of my tomorrows to complete.
A day I would live as though it was my last, as though there would be no tomorrow.
A day when I would play the games I play to the limit,
To laugh as hard as I can,
To love as passionately as I am able,
To work and achieve to my capacity,
yet with time to rest and relax with my loved ones
until we are full of the love we have for one another.
A day when there is time to reflect,
To consider those whose fortunes have not yet been realised, as mine have,
To pray that they may be realised – soon.
A day which closes with a Prayer of Thanks to the Great Spirit and all the guides I have,
for watching over me through this day,
and to ask them to guide me through the next,
so that again someone might say:
“I’m glad that you came by!”
