Life is all about change...

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Conditions Change

Conditions change all the time. What you could depend on yesterday, might very well be gone today.

What once worked so well for you, will eventually fail to bring the results you seek. So when conditions change, you have the valuable opportunity to change along with them.

Life by its very definition is always changing. People who make the most of life are those who expect the changes, welcome them, and find the positive possibilities in each one.

When you see changes occurring, instead of making a judgment make a careful observation. You cannot stop the changes that are already taking place, so your best strategy is to find the opportunities that are embedded within them.

And those positive opportunities are most certainly there. Rather than being fearful of the changes, be curious, and you’ll see the hidden value in those changes.

You can count on the fact that the world will continue to change. And you can always choose to take the actions that will make those changes be for the better.

— Ralph Marston

I am in the midst of change. It is a gift. It means I have the chance to grow, to spread my wings and fly above the difficulties I face. I always have a choice. I may not like the choices I have, but I am capable of making the right one, with God's guidance. If I am availbale, God will make me able!
I'm committing to keep tracking, to keep moving... to SPARK ON!!!

    I recall reading that the only constant is change.

    I am so glad you are finding such inspiration and guidence in Ralph Marston's words. Things to ponder and live by, indeed. I do hope you and DH can find the silver lining in the aftermath of his stroke..

    Great blog! My first reaction is always resistance... not even sure why, becuase I actually seek change out... perhaps I just want to change only on my own terms, LOL!

You're doing so well, and you are such and inspiration to me!
