Embracing Change

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Changes, whether good or bad, should inform you but not define you. At times changes can be difficult to accept but one should realize and consider why changes happen. Ask yourself, “Was it a good change?”

People change as does the weather, the seasons, the environment, and technology. Some changes we cannot control, but in learning from every change we gain information from experience.

Not every change is going to be the best at first, but understanding how and why it happened and if it is suitable to you, can have an effect on your life.

As we age, we are more aware of our changes, whether it is health issues, relationships, or opportunities. Embrace change, but also control what is best for you and others.

Like the saying goes, “If you don’t find something to your liking, change it!”
