Remember the Good Changes

Change is a funny thing. When we’re faced with any sort of transition, we often think things like: “Change is hard” and “I hate change.” We don’t look forward to change—we often say that we’d be a lot happier if things never changed.

Remember falling in love with your spouse, or when your first child was born, or when you were offered a job that you didn’t think you were qualified for. Or you may have lost weight, kicked an addiction, triumphed over an illness, changed careers, gone back to school or pursued a dream like learning how to paint, speak French or sculpt. And, don’t forget seasonal change—yesterday was the first day of Spring, which is a great change.
