Change is Beautiful
We've been experiencing quite a lot of change lately in our lives. Sometimes change is full of challenges. Sometimes it can be a bit scary. It can be incredibly overwhelming. Change isn't necessarily a bad thing, however. Without it, there would be no butterflies. We would not have the gorgeous fall colors painting our sky. We've been working on reminding ourselves that just because we may be struggling, it does not mean we are failing. Change can make us stronger. We've been reading quite a few books to help guide us through our changes and admiring the beauty the world has to offer us. Life is a gift: as Uncle Iroh in Avatar attests, "If you look for the light, you can often find it. If you look for the dark, it is all you will ever see." We can look at change and its challenges as something negative and become consumed by it, or we can see it as a change to continue growing into our best selves. We can learn quite a lot if we keep an open mind and possess the willingness to learn.
