In the odd moments of clarity in my life, I find I always need to change something about myself. Not change in the sense that I want to don some superficial personality trait, or heaven help me, style or trend, but there are times where I feel the need to change like a tree feels the need to stretch out a new limb to the sky or dig into the earth with another root. The change I find that I desire is growth, a movement toward maturity, wisdom, and all that other good stuff.
So if the desire to change comes so easily, why is it so hard to do?
You'd think that as human beings, it'd be easy. After all, isn't the ability to change one of the hallmarks of humanity, one of things that sets us apart from the poo-fling'n chimps and tree hugging sloths?
No real answers today, just questions... though a piece of Scripture does come to mind...
"...the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
