I got a fortune cookie with my lunch today. The fortune said:
When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.
At first, I was a bit disappointed in this fortune. I felt as though I had been cheated. I mean, duh! When you’re finished changing, of course you’re finished! You just said you’re finished changing!
Then I thought about it a little more. I realized that it had more depth then I had given it. When you as a person are no longer changing, you ARE finished. Finito. Done. If you aren’t changing, then you aren’t growing or evolving as a person. The only people who stop changing are dead people. So in a sense, when you finish changing, you really are finished.
