Change

"You change for 2 reasons: Either you learn enough that you want to, or you've been hurt enough that you have to."

I read this quote today and found myself re-reading it over and over again. Change can be a pretty scary word or idea, at least for me it is. Sometimes you make changes because you want to...like I became a vegetarian after reading several books and learning too much to continue eating meat. Or...sometimes you change because you have to, you find out you have a health condition that makes you look at your diet and lifestyle differently and you are forced to change it.

I figure no matter how change comes in to your life...embrace it. Whether you have to change or you want to change....it happens, and it usually forces us to grow. Some of these changes can be hard, but if everything in life where easy we would never learn any lessons. Some of these changes can hurt like hell, but if things didn't hurt then we would never appreciate the things that feel wonderful. Some of these changes are stressful and confusing, but without those we would never learn how to cope.

I guess it just goes back to the thing i always try to remember....there is a valuable lesson to be learned from every experience in your life if you keep your eyes and heart open and ready to learn it. Change is gonna happen whether you want it to or not, so find the lesson it is offering and embrace it!
