Change is inevitable. It cannot be avoided or evaded forever. For many of us, it is uncomfortable. We may need a minute to adjust, accept or just to reorient ourselves. That’s okay. Many of us are creatures of habit – it gives us a sense of control and keeps us centered. However, if we live long enough, we realize that there is no guarantee that what is will always be.
Many of us are now doing life without our loved ones, parenting alone, or taken on the role of a caregiver for aging parents. A marriage we thought would stand the test of time, didn’t. Businesses now closed as many are surrounded by the ashes of broken dreams. Some of us have become boomerang kids [adult children who left home and returned]. This is much to the delight of many parents, but for others it is a nightmare.😅 Early retirement is a reality of many today. Some of us were not mentally ready for this. Forced to stop to working because of health challenges – unfortunately depression is now sweeping through many of our homes. Change comes – though unwelcomed it may be at times.
I have this little saying on my desk at work: ‘ Sometimes what seems like the end, may just be the beginning’. There is much truth here. It may take a bit of mindset change to embrace this new season. Your assignment may have changed, but you might just be at the cusp of something beautiful. Know that you are chosen and equipped for this moment!
***Thanks for reading- dare to embrace this change.
