12:13 am - Change is rarely easy.



==========================================
To the voice
To the liar in the mirror
Saying you can't ever change
To the guilt that's sittin on your shoulder
Always keepin you wrapped in chains
To the past that you can't undo
To the pain that you're walkin through
To the small and the big mistakes
This is what love wants to say


Say goodbye, say goodbye
To the one that I used to be
Say goodbye, say goodbye
Every day is a brand new mercy (Hello, Hello)
This is where it starts now (Hello, hello)
Everything can turn around
In a moment, here's your moment
You can say goodbye


There is grace that you can't imagine
There is love that you can't outrun
There is peace you can hold onto
When your world is coming undone
You don't have to give in to the fear
Don't have to let your story stop here
And when the hand tries to pull you back
You don't have to go back, you don't have to go back


Say goodbye, say goodbye
To the one that I used to be
Say goodbye, say goodbye
Every day is a brand new mercy (Hello, Hello)
This is where it starts now (Hello, hello)
Everything can turn around
In a moment, here's your moment
You can say goodbye


To everything that breaks you down
It doesn't have to define you now
Jesus came to take it all away


Say goodbye, say goodbye
To the one that I used to be
Say goodbye, say goodbye
Every day is a brand new mercy (Hello, Hello)
This is where it starts now (Hello, hello)
Everything can turn around
In a moment, here's your moment
You can say goodbye


==========================================



I know this song is about God but I prefer to think that it's for everyone who wants to change something about themselves but is struggling to achieve that.  Some changes come easily, but others are very difficult.  Some changes never take root and you have to fight everyday to go forward and not slide backwards.  Sometimes you think you've changed but something trips and you fall back into your old ways, all the while hating yourself for it and wondering why you're such a failure.  Yet everyday we keep going, we keep fighting, jumping over the hurdles in our way, pushing past the barriers that challenge us through every stage in our lives.


There're many aspects of humanity I despise.  More often than not I think being human is more trouble than it's worth, but in the one aspect in which I think humans are admirable is the ability to be faced with problems day after day but to always try and hope and keep our heads up high.  Dealing with outside problems we is easy - 
The test we failed.
The mountain of homework that needs finishing.  
The friend that we fought with.  
The co-worker we don't get along with.  
The customer that complains.  
The parents nagging us.  
The boyfriend/girlfriend that's cheating.  
The wife/husband who works too much.
The  pressure to find a good job.
The stress of the deadline.
The worry of getting married.
The chaos of building one's own family.



But nothing quite compares to having to fight oneself.  Faced with the one person we know better than all others on this planet, that's the hardest person to fight and to change because that person also knows you best and can think of every way to stop you from reaching your goal.  And since that person is with you 24/7 you have to be on guard every moment of the day.  But like the song says, that person in the mirror telling you you can't succeed is a liar.  The fact of the matter is that you CAN, it's difficult, but not impossible.  So while sometimes you'll want to ram your hand through a mirror or punch a hole through the wall the most important thing is to not give up.  A new mirror can be bought, the wall can be fixed, but the guilt of giving in to that liar in the mirror will not be shaken for your whole life if you let it win because you can't run from yourself in the end.
