Can You Accept Change?

Monday, January 28, 2013

Have you ever experienced a change in your life that was so great that you didn't know what to do?
Sooner or later you'll experience a crisis in your life, and how you meet it will determine your future happiness and success.
I just went through a multitude of Crisis' and it isn't easy to get back on track...

I lost my Dad in December, I almost ended up in the hospital due to complications due to Diabetes, I have multiple nerve problems now because of the complications, my Daughter moved back home without a job... Bad Right?

Not Really...

In this situation, My daughter has helped me through my Crisis by providing transportation to me and Mom , She has helped My Mom (Grammie) she has also helped me around the house getting back on track... so you see... all's not what it may seem

A closer look will show you that most "crisis situations" are opportunities to either advance or stay where you are. In fact, most changes in your life will take place out of either "inspiration" or "desperation."

Whatever comes your way, give it meaning and transform it into something of value. Your personal growth is the process of responding positively to change. It's that positive (or Negative) way of thinking that will define you as a person. Good or Bad... you are you!

Can you accept change? This is up to you... I prefer to take a bad situation and turn it into a positive result... It may not be 100 % the way you want it but it will improve your situation!

Until Next Time...

    So sorry Jukebox to hear of your losing your dad. I lost my dad in 1998 , and I still get tears in my eyes at times and miss him , but as you say we must adapt and accept the changes we have no control over. Your blog is inspiring and positive. You have the gift of writing well. I hope your health is improving, Best Regards, Spark friend Lucy S.

    Sorry about you dad and your health issues. I am glad that you found positives to hold on to and go forward.

I don't know if you remember me. I was here two or three yrs ago. We played the games and things on psychic sparkers. I think I left right before Kooch (Carol) left us. I wanted to say hi and that I am glad you are still here. emoticon

    Accept change? I wish it were a yes/no thing - you could check the "no" box and things would stay the same for a while...

But, as one annoying (just kidding...sort of) neighbor of mine says, "The only constant in life is change."

It's kind of like standing in the ocean - the waves are going to come. You choose whether to stand firmly planted and get plowed face-first into the sand, or to let yourself ride over the swells. Sounds like you've definitely learned to ride the waves, and after getting a mouthful of sand more than once, I finally have as well.

It's amazing, the things you learn through adversity that you never would have learned from happy and easy.
