Change is life. Without change there would be no growth, no understanding, no relating and no surprises. We are by nature changing beings. Still we seem to fear and resist it more than any other aspect of life…- Leo Buscaglia
May is a time with many life changing events and my life is filled with them. My youngest daughter is graduating college, my niece is getting married and my parents are celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary.
These are all wonderful, momentous events, and there is letting go and moving forward with each.
With each phase of life, change brings growth, discomfort and opportunity.
Even though my daughters have not lived at home during college, this final graduation marks an ending and new beginning for my daughter, myself and the rest of the family. New stress, fear and excitement are all part of this next phase of life.
It is like this in every aspect of living. One moment passes and a new moment emerges. Each and every breath is a new breath. Each emotion has a beginning and end. Nothing stays stagnant.
It is an exquisite process and to resist it is to miss out on the experience.
Embrace each and every aspect of change and enjoy the ride!
