To live is to change. To live is to grow. To live is to expand.
If there is one thing and one thing only about life that is constant, it is that we can count on it to change. Sometimes we are the drivers of that change but sometimes change is placed upon us in the most unexpected ways. Sometimes these are pleasant changes and other times they are difficult or sad or both.
Either way, change is certain. Accepting change is easy when it is our own decision. Accepting change when it comes from someone else or when we cannot control it is not because we cannot be certain where it will lead. All we can do with this kind of change is wait to see where it will take us and be open to the journey and lessons along the way.
The key to living a happy life is to expect change and all that comes with it. The answer to having peace and serenity is to acknowledge that there will be unknowns and that often we cannot plan for them.
Life is a roller coaster of ups and downs and twists and turns. It bends and shifts and sometimes moves in abrupt and unanticipated ways. These changes provide us with a choice to grow in acceptance of what is out of our control or to stubbornly attempt to hold on to what used to be.
To live is to adapt. To live is to evolve. To live is to embrace uncertainty.
