“To improve is to change to be perfect is to change often.” This statement made by Winston Churchill. This stands true as life is a series of small but meaningful changes. In every sphere of day-to-day living, transformations can be witnessed.
The silver light of the moon makes way for the golden rays of the sun, while the scrumptious meals which tantalize our taste buds, make way for desserts that tempt our sweet tooth. Change signifies continuity. It shows us that life does not come to a standstill no matter what the circumstance may be. Going forward is the only way.
Only in the scorching heat of the sun, do we miss the cozy atmosphere of winter. The bloom of spring is missed while watching the empty trees of autumn. Change makes us value things as absence makes the heart grow fonder.
During the lifetime of a human being, different age groups have different priorities. For adolescents and teenagers the goal would be to get good grades or to excel at certain sports. Millennials aim at heading start-ups or occupying high-end positions of the top Multi-National Companies. While after sixty, the focus would shift to providing for the family and having a comfortable retirement. Thus, change is the only thing constant in our hectic life-cycles.
When we compare the past filled with ignorant cave-men with the futuristic robots, it can be duly noted that change always leads to Evolution. From the weapons made of stone to the nuclear missiles, from the massive computers that occupied a whole room to a sleek laptop. From slow moving locomotives to lighting fast bullet trains, from raw fruits to delicious culinary delicacies. From the horrific dangers of diseases like Polio, Small Pox etc to their eradication.
Change is essential as it builds character, helps us overcome hurdles and makes us what we are. Common pieces of wood, steel and aluminum become a part of an Oligarch’s private airplane and exotic yacht, only after undergoing a change. The worth of an unpolished diamond is recognized only after it is separated from the ore, polished and set into a luxury metal.
All in all, life would be dreary and monotonous if not for change. Housing, Fashion, Food, Interests everything changes regularly as in order to be the best version of ourselves, we need to break the stereotypes, change our outlook and get ready to face new challenges.
