Can a person really change?


My ex use to always say

“A leopard can’t change his spots” and yes, a Leopard may not be able to 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!


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 and put on a facade for the world to see.


Here’s the thing, have you not learned lessons?  Have you not grew and moved on?  Case in point are two good friends of mine that were crack heads, drugs booze, partying, you name it, they have done it and then they hit rock bottom bad.


One day they, yes, THEY decided that it 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 for years, 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 big three (can’t remember which)

his mom was a druggie,

she sold her body, she was a lousy mom, she cheated and she lied for her drugs. Until one day she said its done 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, 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 (Tyler Perry, Steve Harvey)


You can escape from Cuba on a raft with just the clothes on your back to owning your own company (plently of my friends have done this. I live in Miami, there are hundreds of stories like this)


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.


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”
