How to change, and make it stick

Be bold for change!

These were the words on the lips of many powerful women in commemoration of the International Women’s Day, just a few weeks ago.

I read many of the write-ups and memes with some level of detachment at first. Then curiosity. And that’s because I strongly believe that it is difficult to push other people to change, it’s hard enough trying to change yourself. So telling someone ‘Change!’ is most times futile.

Memories…

When the day ends, the year ends, we finally retire, we grow old, the children leave home, memories are what we’ll be left with.
