Changes Come and Go

Routines are just that, warm security blankets
that give us a sense of order and complacency
in our lives. Then CHANGE comes and look out,
nothing will be the same again. We can REACT or
ACT. Those are the choices available in our lives.

Stuck in our rut, challenges can upset our normal
way of doing things. Oh no, we didn't expect this.
Why can't things work out the way we want them?
All of this self talk will get us nowhere positive until
we realize ACTION is the only helpful response.

What can we learn from this situation, not why
did it happen to me? What doors are now opened?
Can I overcome, stretch, learn from new obstacles
in my way and not stumble or retreat from them?
Only time, faith and our planned actions will tell.

Your thoughts rang a loud bell for me, who has always been uncomfortable with change. You're right, though: Change opens new doors and opportunities.
