Become Something Else You Have To Give Up Something

To Become Something Else You Have To Stop Being What You Are Now. To Start Doing Things A New Way, You Have To End The Way You Are Doing Them Now. To Develop A New Attitude Or Outlook, You Have To Let Go Of The Old.

William Bridges – Author of Transitions

Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

Matthew 9:17, King James Version

And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles.

Mark 2:22, King James Version

And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.

Luke 5:37, King James Version

I am a food lover, and cooking is therapeutic for me; it relaxes me and transports me to a quieter universe away from the noisy, busy modern world. I am a Counseling Mental Health & Wellness graduate student, wife, and stepmother. I love connecting with people from different cultural backgrounds through food, fashion, wisdom, and lifestyle in general. To be continued because I am still in the process of discovering who I am as I continue this journey called life. I promise to keep you all posted in the meantime.

  1. Interesting! I have been thinking about that Bible passage a lot.

  2. Personally, i prefer the (less adulterated) Gospel of Thomas sayings. They were rejected by the high priests and bureaucrats because they supported independence and aloneness and not dependency. Many of the top biblical scholars say the G of T came before the standard four (and that the G. of John is a rebuttal against the G of T).

    (28) Jesus said: I stood in the midst of the world, and I appeared to them in the flesh. I found them all drunk; I found none of them thirsting, and my soul was afflicted for the sons of men; for they are blind in their heart, and they do not see that they came empty into the world, (and) empty they seek to leave the world again. But now they are drunk. When they have thrown off their wine, they will repent.
