The Philosophy of Change

Weather reports are sometimes inaccurate.  Sometimes a forecast will be spot on and we will see a beautiful sunrise or sunset.  Other times, the rain that we need so badly doesn’t arrive – or a blizzard knocks out one whole section of the country for days.  Hurricanes beat up a coast, leaving tragedy and harm in their wake.

I see change as being very similar.   Some changes we hope for and anticipate.  Other changes come so fast, we are blindsided and taken by surprise.   I try to look at change with anticipation…this is because to look at change with dread defeats the whole purpose of the change.  It ends the good benefits of the change before the change can even happen.

Maybe we can look at change this way:  as long as the new event or behavior or procedure is not against our morals and ethics, we can predict a silver lining in the clouds:  change helps us to keep up – and grow – and possibly even turn out with a better result than we anticipated.   Without change, life would be boring, and there wouldn’t be much reason to dream and imagine…

May the changes you notice or hear of today influence you in a positive way – it will be okay.   🙂

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, http://www.innersunshine.net launched. Thank you for visiting!
