Change & Re-invention                                                         November 2008

turning the page

Just when you think you've got a reasonable handle on things, life throws you a curveball and everything changes. It is simultaneously one of the most challenging and miraculous things about being human…nobody ever has it "all figured out." We each just have to muddle our way through, but the process for finding solid ground again after the wind has been knocked out of our sails can be painful & scary.




Whether we like it or not, change is inevitable. Self-imposed or circumstantial, coping with change can be heartbreaking as moving forward means having to let go of the past. Letting go of who we were, what we knew as familiar, our beliefs about ourselves, our old achievements, lost loves, old habits, and our ideas about the way things should be. One chapter closes, and another one begins.




The only moment there ever is - is NOW. We can embrace change or we can resist it - but either way, it's happening. It is what it is. And how we respond to it is a CHOICE. We can whine & snivel about how much we miss "the good 'ol days," or we can celebrate being alive and having the opportunity to re-invent ourselves.


Perhaps it's all part of a Divine Plan that is bigger than us? Perhaps there is a miracle waiting for us right around the corner? Perhaps we have been thrust into a situation to prepare us for something bigger that we just don't see yet?


Whatever the case may be, we can choose to respond by being bitter, or by being better. I choose better!

Cheers to all those with complicated lives who never give up and keep on keepin' on…
