All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. ~Anatole France
The man who looks for security, even in the mind, is like a man who would chop off his limbs in order to have artificial ones which will give him no pain or trouble. ~Henry Miller
Change is inevitable - except from a vending machine. ~Robert C. Gallagher
They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom. ~Confucius
If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies. ~Author Unknown
Continuity gives us roots; change gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights. ~Pauline R. Kezer
God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me. ~Author Unknown
It is this belief in a power larger than myself and other than myself, which allows me to venture into the unknown and even the unknowable. Maya Angelou
I have been thinking a lot lately about the changes that we go through in our lives and how, in retro-spect, choosing to make these big changes defines our lives. In my youth I longed for and went to great lengths to preserve the status quo. That was my security, my safety, or so I thought. But that was before I made changes in my life, some chosen, some just appeared. And today in my life I am looking forward to the changes I choose and sometimes I am almost open to those that just appear. Scary, yes, but exciting and new and shining.

So my wish for us all is growth, transformation and change. Have a great day!
