The first step toward change is acceptance. Once you accept yourself, you open the door to change. That's all you have to do. Change is not something you do, it's something you allow.
There is nothing in life, that is as certain as change. It is not easy to leave our comfort zone, because there is always something good and something bad accompanied with change. The question is how we deal with it, when the wind of change come to our house - do we close the doors or build wind mills?
