Nothing remains quite the same.
- Jimmy Buffet (Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes)
If there is one thing you can count on in life, it's change. NOTHING ever stays the same. Heck, even our body generates new cells and sheds old ones so fast that we're literally a different person every single day!
Yet change is the one force we tend to resist the most. We even fear it. Talk about spitting into the wind.
Try as we might to resist it, change is inevitable. So instead of fighting and fretting it (Which never seems to work. In fact, it only leads to unnecessary stress.), why not embrace it?
Look around. Notice the changing pattern in everything around you. A seed becomes a plant that becomes a sapling that becomes a small tree that becomes a mighty oak that sheds its leaves that makes fresh soil... and so on and so on and scooby dooby dooby.
Life is Change. Change is Life.
The waves of change are gonna keep crashing down on you. We can either let it pull us under or jump on top and body surf 'em in.
Trying to control the future
Is like trying to take the master carpenter's place.
When you handle the master carpenter's tools,
Chances are that you'll cut your hand.
- Tao Te Ching, verse 74
