The Winds of Change are Coming…

It’s August! And the winds of change have begun to blow. It’s back-to-school season, and whether you have kids in school or were once a school kid, we all feel it. Change is coming; football season and the holidays are right around the corner.

How does that feel to you? Are you excited? Do you dread it?

A combination of both?

We all have opinions about change, but try this thought on:

‘Change is a gift.’

If we didn’t have the gift of change, a toothache would go on forever, we would never add more money to our checking account, and we wouldn’t love the precious moments we spend with our loved ones quite as much because there would be no time to miss them and feel that bittersweet contrast.  Change is good, friend.

How, then, do we passionately embrace change?  How do we get excited about even the unwelcome changes?

Here are a couple of ideas for you to ponder this week-

  1. Appreciate that all things are temporary and soak up the exquisite good in them.  This is the gift of presence. The scent of a rose, or fresh snow, the smile on a baby’s face- temporary and precious. Soak up every moment.
  2. Look for the lesson in the change. There is a lesson in every.single.experience. It can be a fun game to lighten life up a little and play with finding the lesson. What’s the lesson in unemployment? In a broken ankle? In a child who doesn’t follow his parent’s dreams?

Well, friend, you tell me. I know for me, lessons like treasuring the little things, slowing down, and loving someone for who they are and not what they do come to mind.

What will you appreciate in the changes of this next week? Reply to this email and share the gifts of change you see this week.
