Now, tell me, didn’t This start playing in your head when you read the title? lol 😉 Anyway, back to ch-ch-ch-changes… turn and face the strange…
It only takes one person to change your life — you. ~Ruth Casey
This reading we had in our Community Meeting really was right on the mark for us seeing that tomorrow (Wednesday May 13) is the hearing for an eviction. Eik. That means change is on the wind… get it? Winds of change. Yea, I’m stressing a bit here… just a little. lol So, the reading… here it is:
Change is not easy, but it’s absolutely unavoidable. Doors will close. Barriers will surface. Frustrations will mount. Nothing stays the same forever, and it’s such folly to wish otherwise. Growth accompanies positive change; determining to risk the outcome resulting from a changed behavior or attitude will enhance our self-perceptions. We will have moved forward; in every instance our lives will be influenced by making a change that only each of us can make.
We have all dreaded the changes we knew we had to make. Perhaps even now we fear some impending changes. Where might they take us? It’s difficult accepting that the outcome is not ours to control. Only the effort is ours. The solace is that positive changes, which we know are right for us and other people in our lives, are never going to take us astray. In fact, they are necessary for the smooth path just beyond this stumbling block.
When we are troubled by circumstances in our lives, a change is called for, a change that we must initiate. When we reflect on our recent as well as distant past, we will remember that the changes we most dreaded again and again have positively influenced our lives in untold ways.
I could not have said it better.
