Everything must change and you do what you can with the changes that are made. You can't stop it. You can't fight it. Everybody tries to go back to yesterday, but you can't go back to yesterday. The only time there is, is now.

If you want small changes in your life, work on your attitude. But if you want big and primary changes, work on your paradigm.
