Improvement

Tale as old as time
Tune as old as song
Bittersweet and strange finding you can change
Learning you were wrong

Good ol' Disney seems to have a musical moment for every occasion. This snippet from Beauty and the Beast lept into my thoughts late tonight. Change is such a difficult topic for me. Oh, sure, I advocate change, but that word seems so ambiguous. I guess what I really advocate is improvement--change for the better.

Sometimes being excited about improvement is easy. I want to study harder, work more efficiently, and spend my time more wisely.

Sometimes being excited about improvement is hard. Like when it concerns deeply personal convictions, beliefs, or even ways of experiencing life. If you're stubborn like I am, you might be able to relate to those words and introspective questions.

Improving yourself requires making difficult decisions. Improving yourself requires learning you were wrong. Improving yourself requires leaving areas of comfort. It's bittersweet. It's strange. And it is the most rewarding process you can ever experience.
