Winds of Change


The one constant in life that we all deal with is Change.  Change for some creates anxiety, fear and frustration, while for others it brings opportunity and growth.  How we face change in our lives determines how successful we will be in handling the newness that change brings.

Throughout my life, change has been a constant companion and something that I have grown accustomed to dealing with.  Changes in work, home, family, school, relationships, health and dreams are just some of the many types I have learned to embrace over the years.  For others in my life, change is not as common and therefore can cause extreme anxiety and confusion as they learn to manage the changes in life that are presented.

As my wife and I embark into a time of great change, we are grateful for the wisdom we have both learned throughout our lives and the ability we have developed to handle change as it comes.  We view this time as one of opportunity and growth, one where our family will undoubtedly benefit.

Change brings a rebirth, a newness to many things.  It provides an opportunity to gain greater wisdom and perspective in life.  Embracing change allows peace in our lives instead of anxiety and confusion.   It allows us to think clearly and manage the change effectively and beneficially.

Much as with anything in life, our attitudes with which we approach anything has a great impact on the outcome and in the end our own peace and happiness.

Change equals opportunity.

  1. I love your last sentence: Change equals opportunity. It is just what it is. An opportunity to break out of old habits and start something new. Sometimes we choose to change and sometimes life makes us change. In any case it is an opportunity to develop further.

  2. It is so true that attitude will effect the outcome of change. Yet it is hard for me to remind myself of this when the fear and doubt of change stand directly before me. Thank you for posting. 🙂
