Delray Beach...Change

Delray Beach...Change

 

There is so much change going on in all our lives. Delray Beach has a new tree (still 100 feet high) in a somewhat new location.

New businesses are coming to town, and others have left.

It’s not that I don’t like change. But I prefer it when I am the one making the change, not the one having to adjust to it.

 

Just when I think I have learned the way to live, life changes. Hugh Prather

 

 

I suppose it’s one of the first of the many life lessons that we learn in life...nothing stays the same.

However, some things don’t change. People, for example, may alter or adjust, they may mellow. Or, something becomes more pronounced in them. But rarely do they totally do a 180° turn.  There is always a piece of the original being that hangs on.

 

There is nothing permanent except change. Heraclitus

My theory on life is that life is beautiful. Life doesn't change. You have a day, and a night, and a month, and a year. We people change - we can be miserable or we can be happy. It's what you make of your life. Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

 

 

 

Even the beach we go to changes. Tides come and go. Storms sometimes reclaim parts of the beach. A sea as smooth as glass, then choppy and sloppy waves.

Our businesses change. They have to or risk standing in line with those who did not.

 

 

There are three constants in life... change, choice, and principles. Stephen Covey

I suppose I’ll just keep chugging away and picking what change I’ll like and perhaps adapt to.



Enjoy your weekend...and go with the flow.

The older I get the less I like changes.  It was very different when I was young.

I also prefer to be the one making the changes, rather than adapting to changes someone else has made, but I guess that would be true for everyone, haha.

Wayne Martin There are some changes I don't like but have to accept. 

James Dray I think I have content with what 's going on so change can disrupt that. 

And you as well Gita Bantwal

Barbara Todaro life is easier when you go with the flow, however I prefer it when I am in charge of the flow. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I wasn't happy with some of the changes I see here in my little town but then I realized we've been here off and on for 30 years. Things do change. Business owners sell or close the business.  Much as we'd like things to stay the same, they really can't.

LOL All right Donald Urschalitz I get the message, and a good one it is!

Gabe Sanders there are times when I welcome change...it keeps us from getting bored. 

Scott Godzyk it does keep us on our toes, doesn't it?

Joe Pryor the older I get, I've learned to control what I can, and for what I can't, I deal with it in another way. 

Brian England well, I suppose we have to accept it otherwise it will make our lives more difficult.

Change is simple raw energy.  It's only as good as those who have the power to shape and move it.

Kathy, Change is most definitely a given ... it is constant all around us whether we know it, like it, or not. It frazzles me when the grocery store keeps moving things from one place to another!

Kathy,  Love your post and I agree.  There is so much change going on around here in both Delray and Boca.  You've been here a few years longer, but we've been here full time for 23 years.  They were sleepy little towns back then.  

Some changes are good, and it's sad to see some things go.  But, we have to keep up with the times.  I love old movies.  Sometimes, when I'm watching them, I think, it was only so many years ago - look how different life was.

Kathy - you are beautifully philosophical in this post. I makes me slow down and read tasting the words, and digest your beautiful photos along the way
