Changes For The Better


“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”
Paulo Coelho

I often have to remind myself to embrace change and to realise it happens for a reason. It is not always obvious at first, but usually in the end I see it was worth it.

What you have today may become what you had by tomorrow. Things change, often spontaneously. People and circumstances come and go. Life continues to evolve.

Sometimes the shortest split second in time changes the direction of our lives. A seemingly innocuous decision switches our life around. Entire lives have been swiveled and flipped upside down, for better or worse, on the strength of an unpredictable event. And these events are always happening.

However good or bad a situation is now, it will change. That is the one thing we can count on. So when life is good and working for you, enjoy it. And remember, happiness never comes to those who do not appreciate what they have.

I love the Chinese Proverb, ”When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills.’‘ Use the changes to your advantage…..change creates new opportunities, new chances to adapt for the better.

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
Lao Tzu
