Can a person really change?

Can a person really change?


My ex use to always say

“A leopard can’t change his spots” and yes, he is right, a Leopard may not be able to change his spots but we as humans can.


I have seen it over and over in my lifetime, these are the stories that give us hope and inspire us to go on!


I mean really? Do you want to be judged by what you’ve done thirty years ago? God I hope not as I was a mess years ago. I did drugs and alcohol, I lied, I pretended to be someone I wasn’t and I put on a facade for the world to see.


Here’s the thing, have you not learned lessons? Have you not grown and moved on? Are you really the same person you were years ago? God I hope not…age is suppose to bring you wisdom.


Case in point are two good friends of mine that were crack heads back in the day, drugs booze, partying, you name it, they have done it and then they hit rock bottom bad.


One day they, yes, THEY decided that enough was enough and so they took the steps to change.


Today they are both clean and sober for many years and help others who want to sober as well.


My one friend is an inspriation to me and many others, as not only has she been clean and sober, she has the most postive attitude of any one I know! She cleaned her body and she worked and changed her mind as well.


Another incredible story is of the Miami heats Dwayne Wade’s mom, she was a druggie, she sold her body, she was a lousy mom, she cheated and she lied for her drugs. I heard her tell her testimony and it made me cry, until one day she said its done, she gave her life over to God and she changed her life. Today she is a pastor of her own church! She helps people all over the world with her testimony.


Really, you say we can’t change? We can do anything we set out minds to!


You can come from a dirt poor family where no one can read and get into an Ivy league college, nothing is impossible! You can be homeless with nothing to eat to running a million dollar company just look at Tyler Perry or Steve Harvey.


Oprah came from nothing to becoming the most influential women in the world, don’t tell me it can’t be done.


You can escape from Cuba on a raft with just the clothes on your back and come to the United States. With hard work and determination in a few years you can own your own company (Plently of my friends have done this and I live in Miami, so there are hundreds of stories like this as well.


Nothing, I mean nothing is impossible if you want it bad enough.

You can change your life, you can change what you don’t like about yourself, your attitude, your drug or alcohol use, the way you treat people, anything. It is up to you, as I always say at the end of every blog “Be the change you want to see”


So today my friends, remember yes, a leopard can’t change his spots but we can!


“Be the change you want to see”


“And just when the caterpillar thought his life was over…he turned into a beautiful butterfly”
