Things will not stay the same no matter how much we would like them to. When a life change occurs, we have two choices in how to respond. We can despair that a change has come and assume that things will be worse, or we can look with excitement at the new possibilities for personal growth and change in self that the change presents.

  6. Letting Go

    She was scared to let go.
    She was worried that everything might fall apart.

    Sometimes it’s in phases.

    Time Goes Too Fast
