When times of change come, it seems they can resonate within us like rumbling waves hitting the shore, or perhaps just the opposite, a gentle rolling with the tide. The most impacting changes I have found, center around the people I love. The elements involved in making a change in one’s life often involve courage, inner strength, insight and many times, a big leap of faith. As human beings, we become secure with the family and friends that surround us, and change disrupts that sweet, familiar pattern. After the initial feeling of tender void, I have come to know and understand, that without change we are slowing down the process of growth on many levels in our own lives, and in the lives of the ones we love. And, after all, changes are not necessarily endings, in many cases they are really new beginnings. Here’s to rolling with the tide!
