Balance & Perspective

It’s hard to believe that it has been three months since my last post. So much has happened since then.

Change can be very challenging at times especially when it involves residential and economic changes. We have moved out of our cute little house and will miss it sorely, especially the lovely garden we enjoyed over the past 12 years.

Although our new home is smaller, it is quieter and has many amenities that the old house didn’t have. The new place  has a dishwasher, washer & dryer and double paned windows. Love it!

Over the past few months I have chosen to view change as a beguiling invitation to a new and exciting adventure, rather than see it as a threatening and fearful situation that may get worse. One thing for sure there is always the opportunity and challenge to make things better.

Ah yes, and I give myself this pep talk every time I see the dark clouds of doubt and worry hovering on the horizon. These dark moments seem to come most often when I awake in the middle of the night and all the worries flood in, morphing into something much larger and darker than they are in the light of day.

It seems the night dresses our worst fears and worries into twisted, evil monsters which have no real substance. Thankfully, they take on a less sinister aspect once the sun comes up and our imagination isn’t in overdrive.

Balance and perspective is the key!

Quote For The Day;

‘It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power. – Alan Cohen
