Life is always changing....

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, June 08, 2014

My 14 year old Son and I were talking the other night, and he said something doesn't feel right Mom, things seem too out of the ordinary. I think what he was referring to is all the changes he is going through recently graduating from Middle School and moving onto High School. He is talking about his relationships and how things always seem to change.
I explained that life is ever changing, and that we all go through changes, but it's how we accept these changes that determines weather we will be happy in life or not. I always felt we had two choices in this life, either to be a victim or our unhappiness or to be happy regardless of our circumstances. It's never easy, because as humans I believe we want more then we can have at times, but also I think we always strive to be at the top because who doesn't want to be there.
I have learned to lean on God for my strength because my parents died when I was a young age and that was so heartbreaking for me. I have a wonderful husband and a wonderful Son whom make me smile, but God is my rock and my heavenly Father whom I always pray to every day in good times and in bad times too.
I understand so much of what my Son is saying, and it was at that moment, that I wasn't really sure how to help him because I can't change what is, but I can show him how to deal with lifes changes. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Very thought provoking.... and as you put it your little boy is at the cusp of teenage and childhood. I am sure you will be his best friend as he goes through the roller coster of maturing into man hood.... both physically, mentally and emotionally.

God Bless Both of you

    Attitude is everything. We need to look down the road and see where we want to be, then see what works and what doesn't.
I was smiling, thinking of how your son even said something like this to his mom. How wonderful that he can and WILL! Children learn what they live, but peer pressure is tremendous. Keeping the lines open are critical with kids!! You are doing a great job.

    My fav saying is from the movie Mermaids: Life is Change, Death is dwelling on the past or staying in one place to long it helps me when things change because I suffer anxiety and change in routine sometimes sets me off and makes me ill. This keeps me focused. You go with what helps you to make it through and never give up because change can be amazing.

    Change is's how you handle it that counts.

You gave your son excellent advice. As he grows up, he will learn how to deal with all the many changes that are ahead for him in life. He is so lucky that he has such a smart mom!

    He is at a very tough age. I certainly remember my early teen years! I also used to teach school, working with jr high students and found they were the most misunderstood age group - too young for varsity sports and too old for grade school activities and such a huge age range in terms of maturity even between the students. Your son is wise beyond his years to even realize some of what's going on.
