About Change and Improving Our Lives

Contributing author: Gentle Heron

Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change. -Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

It is often said that nobody likes change except a wet baby. That may be true, but many of us, especially at this time of year, think about ways we would like to change our lives for the better. We may have created New Year’s Resolutions. Or we may just have a dream of how we would like to live differently than our present situation.

However we have named our desired life changes, it’s going to take work to accomplish them. And that’s hard!

Virtual Ability community’s focus for 2016 will be on self-improvement. Not only will we offer blog posts by experts and community members on a variety of related topics such as health and wellness, nutrition, exercise, personal skills and emergency preparedness, but we will have lessons and activities related to these topics in Second Life.

We know some factors that help us make and maintain the changes we want in our lives. One is to keep your resolution in front of you, so you are reminded of it daily until it becomes a habit. Another is to keep track of your progress toward your goal. It’s also important to learn how to accomplish your goal. And a fourth factor, perhaps the most important, is to only make plans to change things that are within your control.

How will you improve your life in 2016? Join us as the Virtual Ability community makes this journey together. Consider commenting on blog posts or submitting ideas and articles. Contact iSkye Silverweb inworld or at iskye.silverweb at gmail dot com to contribute.
