The X-Factor is the one thing, in any given situation, that can be a catalyst for change. Right now, I have to be the X-Factor. Nobody else but me can do what needs to be done. Nobody else but me can heal the pain. Nobody else but me can make any difference.
It's been a stupid, stupid, fucked up week. I am genuinely sorry to anyone that got hurt in all this mess. I read a contacts description today that really hit home, and I want to thank him for that. He'll know who he is because he got a letter about it. Nothing more than that needs to be said man. I also received a few fmails yesterday, one in particular from a newer contact of mine. She'll know who she is too, it bothers me she was so upset, and I want to reiterate one word to her: Switzerland.
It's funny that people always say we need change. Why is that funny? Because everything is constantly changing. Everything! Don't believe me? Look outside. The grass may be greener, the sky may be cloudy where yesterday it was clear. Your weight today is different than it was yesterday, just because of the overnight changes in your body (hurry up, work faster body! ;). But those are small changes. Finite details that we take for granted.
So what happens when something changes on a large scale? Are you ready to be part of it? Can you accept it? Hug it? Can you be a catalyst for it?
I can. and I will.
I hope anyone I've upset will realize that we are all just human, but we have the capacity to affect change. I know I do.
