“Things do not change; we change.”

[Henry David Thoreau]


Change is a driving force, even if you don’t want to go for the ride. I do not always feel secure about where I/we may be going. It isn’t feeling lost actually, nor an excitement at some mystery opportunity yet to be seen. It is knowing, yet again, I am different.

“Change is the manifestation of our ability to grow and become…” the author Anne Wilson Schaef tells us. “When we try to protect others from the awareness of our changes, we are being dishonest. No one can care for who we are unless they know who we are.”


Because we have become different, we are blessed with the gifts of change.
