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.
