My father had many sayings he would use in our discussions, his teachings and life lessons, One that has stuck with me , and one that I have heard many times over, is, “The most constant thing in life is change.”
I suppose it has really stuck with me because it has proven to be so very true.
Change is probably never more clear than at this time of year – FALL. The leaves are changing from green, to yellow, then orange and red. This stunningly brilliant visual transformation takes place right before our eyes. We don’t challenge it, or try to stop it, we accept it as part of nature.
All aspects of life are always changing-our relationships with our spouses, our children, our bodies even our perspective and the way we look at life is constantly changing.
The only time we feel pain from change is when we resist it too much. So lesson #27 in my 30 days of learning is to embrace change. To go with the flow of it in order to find peace with it.
It is all around us, but it is how we choose to perceive it, that dictates how it truly affects us – for better or for worse. I choose to embrace it “for better.”
Never forget that one person can make a difference…that one person is YOU!
