Change, it's inevitable. Seasons change, our bodies age, children grow up,loved ones grow old, the only constant is change. We are in control of making positive life changes. We choose how to fuel our bodies, how we interact with others, exercise or not, our attitudes and outlook. The difficulties are changes that are beyond our control. Our challenge is our reaction to those changes. It has been a year of changes for me! Losing my beautiful Mom to breast cancer is a life change I didn't choose. I'm coping on a day to day basis, being grateful of having a wonderful Mom that loved me unconditionally. I lost my job over a year ago, but the time off allowed me to take my Mom to appointments, and be with her in the hospital when she needed me. Now I need to get back to work. I'm changing careers because I don't want to be a Financial Advisor any longer. Changes in the economy have made that a difficulty career.
I have applied to be a substitute Teacher, utilizing my degree. Both my daughters are in college now, exerting their independence. It's hard to turn them out into the world, I miss the days that I was in control of what they were exposed to, making sure they ate well and dressed for the weather. But I love seeing them find success and happiness. Embrace change, control what you can, life is in perpetual motion-don't get left behind!
