Motivational Monday...Embrace Change

 

This is the time of year when change is all around us. We just had a time change, for example. On our walks, we’ve noticed the many signs from Mother Nature that a much-welcomed change is happening before our eyes. 

 

You’ve seen it...leaves that have been gone since Fall are showing up, little butterflybuds on branches that say I’m not done yet! 



Our Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve where we walk has been undergoing a change of sorts...trees have been removed as part of a flood control project by our county.

 

I hear fellow walkers expressing their dismay at this and I get it. On the other hand, not to do this would invite the kind of flooding that the county experienced during Hurricane Harvey. 

 

Change comes into our lives most any day...some welcomed, some not wanted at all, and some feared. 

 

Embrace the changes that you will face this week or the next. Meet them head-on and accept what is. 

 

You never know what that change may bring!

Remember that without change, there would be no butterflies. Without change, the dead of winter would never turn into the beauty of spring. Without change, the dark of night would never turn into the triumph of dawn.    Jayda Harrison

Hi Kathy,
Change is inevitable, isn't it? It reminds of the scripture that says "All things work for the good."

Without change life would be so boring. Change is not always welcome but I love a new challenge.

Every year, with each new change, expected or not, we get older and wiser. I guess that's what the poets and painters were trying to tell us.

While I haven't really embraced the idea that all change is good, I do embrace the adventure of it all.

Wayne Martin you're right. Nothing stands still!!

Sham Reddy CRS Change is going to happen but when we learn to embrace it, we can move on. 

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 I love the way you put it.

Nina Hollander we waste much more time when we do. 

Thank you Roy Kelley my best to you and Chef Dolores. 

Grant Schneider I have to agree. It's best when change is well thought out.

Barbara Todaro the positive ones are a lot easier to take. Sometimes the ones that seem negative can turn out to be positive. 

Kat Palmiotti I love the sound of birds singing and chirping!!!

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD I didn't like it when I first saw it but if it helps in the next hurricane then that's good. Our soil here is clay so there's no where for the water to go.

Kristin Johnston - REALTOR® I'm with you. When I was a lot younger I had a harder time embracing change. 

Brian England the more I think about it, I think those of you who live in a state that doesn't observe the time change have a harder time of it.

Doug Dawes we checked our home bluebird house and there are now 3 eggs there! Yes, Spring is here. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel you make an excellent point!!! Enjoy our NOW. 

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® it is an Atala butterfly and was on the brink of extinction. We happened upon them one morning back in Delray Beach.

Will Hamm our walks have been a lot of fun these past few weeks seeing the buds on the trees and signs of flowers getting ready to bloom. 

Michael Jacobs That's because we live in a time where change is all of the time, 24/7.

You're absolutely right Donald Urschalitz Where would we be without change? Where would we go?

Carol Williams I like to believe that things always work out. 

Me too Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty it makes life exciting.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  I suppose if we're lucky we eventually understand that change is inevitable and often for the best. 

Myrl Jeffcoat That is a wonderful outlook!!! Love it and thank you for the feature in your group.

One of the reasons we moved to Oregon from California, was to experience all four seasons.  Change provides new reasons to smile daily!

Morning Kathy.

Yes ma'am and Mother Nature did not provide for the one-hour switch over.  Dang government, oh well, it is what it is

I envy you those nature walks. We walk in a little mall that is practically out of business...more empty than full. Sometimes we are the only ones other than employees there.  Beats the alternative when weather isn't great. I'm looking forward to outdoor walks again!
