“Let go of the past and go for the future. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau
Many people feel trapped in the life they are leading, unable to change course. They feel frustrated, lonely, stressed, discouraged, unfulfilled or simply just bored.
Can you relate to any of these feelings? I certainly can. There have been times over the years when I’ve struggled with feeling stuck.
Hi there! My name is Peter Clemens.
I’m married and have four sons (ages 8, 7 and 3-year old twins). I was born and raised in Perth, Australia. I moved to Canada in 2007 and lived in Vancouver BC for a number of years. Currently I live in Red Deer, Alberta.
I created The Change Blog in 2007 not because I have all the answers, but to share my story in the hope that it would help others. The short version of this story is that I know what it is like to be unhappy and drifting through life without purpose.
My wake up call came in 2006 when I received the unexpected news I was to be a father. This news was the catalyst for me to start a process of inner-work to change myself into the person I wanted to be. These days I’m happy to report that I love my life. While there are things I struggle with from time-to-time, what have which I once didn’t are inner peace, happiness and purpose.
About The Change Blog
While The Change Blog initially focused on my story, I soon realized there are so many people with their own stories of personal change this blog shouldn’t be about me; it should be about us. That’s why The Change Blog has evolved into a community blog which publishes stories from people of all ages and backgrounds from across the globe.
Since 2007 The Change Blog has published more than 800 stories on topics related to personal change. You can find the latest stories on the Blog Page.
If you would like to contribute a story to The Change Blog you can find out more information on my Contribute Page. People who have written for The Change Blog include Ali Luke, Amy Clover, Barrie Davenport, Glen Allsopp, Marcus Sheridan, Scott Young, Srinivas Rao and Tara Mohr.
