Life is About Change

Life is About Change - It is so easy to resist change, to get bogged down in the sadness of change - I did that yesterday.

Today is a new day - today i read some inspiring quotes:

Nothing in the world is permanent, and we're foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we're still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it. If change is of the essence of existence one would have thought it only sensible to make it the premise of our philosophy.
W. Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965)

I especially like the part in "take delight in it while we have it" - you have to live in the present - i sometimes spend so much time worrying about tomorrow or regetting yesterday - i can't enjoy the NOW. Yesterday coming home with friends, I was so ready to be out of the car, to be alone, etc, etc. - and I purposely stopped looked out the window and enjoyed the view, the feel of the movement in the car - and it really helped - my mood changed instantly.

Another good quote is:

Change your thoughts and you change your world.
Norman Vincent Peale (1898 - 1993)
How true this is!

Change is all about perception. When it's hot we want cold - when it's cold we want hot.
