    Yes Indeed........

    Yes, it seems that change is pretty much the only constant in life no matter how good or bad it is. Change is always there & waiting for us. One year we are younger & kids, then next, we are teenagers in high school & after we graduate from high school, then it is college or a...

    Perception Of Change During Life

    My dear Reader, as you already can see by the title of the group this story belongs to, it´s about the perception that while walking along this wonderful path called life, change is the only buddy that keeps meeting us on various pit stops, crotches and occasionally...

    Pure Morning

    I believe this completely and it is incorporated deeply into he thread of my being.  There are things that I don't utter.  I don't say "I'll love you forever".  I say things like, "I see no reason that I would stop wanting to be with you."...

    Change is something thats inevitable.

    I guess I should really have to believe it myself. Its something that you can't avoid no matter how hard you try to run away from it. And I guess changes can have different effects on people. I lost a friend. I don't know if I already did but I can't help not to think otherwise...

    I Am An Oxymoron

    When you stop changing - you are dead! I remind myself of this every time I begin to complain about making a change.  There is so much to learn and many things to do, why would anyone want to stop changing.  However, I like stability. Non semper ea sunt qua videntur.

    I Count On It!

    I like to say, I like change, the good kind!  Really, the changes I've experienced have not always been good, but I figure the situation that created that change I don't find good can change to something that I'll be comfortable with.  Think about it, if there were no...

    The Winds Of Change

    When the winds of change come, you can struggle against it, holding on for dear life to limb or branch, become wind-whipped and battered by its awesome force... or you can lift your arms and embrace it, letting it lift you to the sky, and take you to new places....

    I don't know how to start over.

    ..my life is a coin toss in the air. In this moment there are no answers, no direction, no reassurances, just blind faith. Everything is the same and nothing is the same. What next!?!

    Such Is the Way of the Tao.

    "To change with change is the changeless state". A favorite quotation of Bruce Lee from the "Tao Te Ching" of Lao Tzu. It's as true today as it was when he wrote it more than two millennia ago.

    This Is the Way It Is.

    Change is the only constant.  No beginning, no end, no other way.  And certainly nothing to get bummed over.  Strawberry Fields Forever.
