CHANGE. . . and I don’t mean the stuff that jingles!

When I was little, my dad would ask, “Sis, you want some change?”  Of course, that meant pennies, nickles and (if lucky) a dime or two.  That is not the change I am referring to now.  My whole life is going through change.  Yesterday was my birthday.  It was a great day with the children, friends and family.  However, what CHANGED was not having a spouse to celebrate another year of my life with.  What CHANGED was starting another year without the love of my life.  What did not CHANGE was my current situation.  What will CHANGE is the way I now will have to traverse the path of my  journey.  What will have to CHANGE is my attitude, my level of confidence, my goals and, of course, me.

CHANGE is inevitable.  We don’t necessarily want it or like it, but it will occur.  I can allow it to be devastating or I can use it to grow.  I can curse it or I can bless it.  I can hide from it or I can embrace it.  It is my choice.  I know that.  I also know I have the power to CHANGE my outlook, my future and the outcome of this journey – and I will.  CHANGE is growth, I accept it.

Does anyone want some CHANGE?  . . .and I do not mean the stuff that jingles.




One thought on “CHANGE. . . and I don’t mean the stuff that jingles!

  1. “Right now I want a word that describes the feeling that you get–a cold sick feeling, deep down inside–when you know something is happening that will change you, and you don’t want it to, but you can’t stop it. And you know, for the first time, for the very first time, that there will now be a before and an after, a was and a will be. And that you will never again quite be the same person you were.”
    ― Jennifer Donnelly, A Northern Light

    “For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”
    ― Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button screenplay

    A tiny change today brings a dramatically different tomorrow.”
    ― Richard Bach, One

    “How would your life be different if…You didn’t allow yourself to be defined by your past? Let today be the day…You stop letting your history interfere with your destiny and awaken to the opportunity to release your greatest self.”
    ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free
