Who we can still become...
At our very core are the automatic, unchangeable things that make us human - the reactions and instincts that have been passed from generation to generation.
Around that core we build our character and personality - layer upon layer of experiences, habits, beliefs and behaviours that become the filter through which we see the world, and the costume we wear that others see.
The mistake we make is to think that our character and personality are fixed and unchangeable, but habits can be broken, behaviours re-built, beliefs changed and new experiences can improve and replace the old.
We cannot change who we were, but we can start to change who we are now, and in doing so, change who we can still become….
