/noun transformative change

“Our world is hungry for genuinely changed people. Leo Tolstoy observes, ‘Everybody thinks of changing humanity and nobody thinks of changing himself.’ Let us be among those who believe that the inner transformation of our lives is a goal worthy of our best effort.” R. Foster, Celebration of Discipline.

I’ll speak only for myself. I live in a culture where quick fixes are popular and opinions are plenty. Where the noble pursuit of inner contentment and confidence remains unanswered by self-help memes and personality tests. And, if I’m not careful, my efforts of improvement fail to extend past myself. Meaning, they don’t touch anyone else.

Raise your hand if you’re with me.

The Greek word metanoia speaks to a change so powerful and profoundly altering that it transforms.

That’s what I’m interested in exploring: inner transformation. The kind that makes me look less like a turd-bucket and more like Jesus. This won’t serve everyone—no hard feelings if it doesn’t serve you. But this is my version of living “all in.”

For those of you who are either interested in, or on the same journey we’ll talk about it. The good, the fun, the ugly. 

-Janel

I’m making a commitment to take care of a few, maybe not all the things on my to-do list but expecting to head into 2021 with a cleaner slate. Taking care of the unnecessary clutter that takes up space in my head. Trying to reassess the things that may not be as important anymore, because things are always changing and that’s OK!
