“People who wait for a magic wand fail to see that they ARE the magic wand.” ~ Thomas Leonard
Really what more is there to say. No one can make change happen for us nor can they “do” change to us. Even the transformation that happens when the fairy godmother pops in to save the day in children’s stories can only to do so much. The charm is temporary. The true and lasting transformation only happens when the protagonist (you are the protagonist in your life story), rolls up his/her sleeves and slogs through some messy, tedious and seemingly unfair work. In the end the effort pays off, sometimes in magical and truly unexpected ways.
