“Change – A Soft Little Sadness”



“When faced with the choice between changing and proving there’s no need to do so, most people get busy on the proof.”   (John K. Galbraith)



“The direction of change to seek is not in our four dimensions:  it is getting deeper into what we are, where you are, like turning up the volume on the amplifier.”     (Thaddeus Golas)



“We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden.”   (Johann von Goethe)



“Only in growth, reform, and change, paradoxically enough, is true security to be found.”    (Anne Morrow Lindbergh)



“Every small positive change we make in ourselves repays us in confidence in the future.”   (Alice Walker)



“Change always invites us into a soft little sadness.  We are sad about losing what we must let go of and scared of what will arrive in its place. 

Change is mystery past our control.  Fear makes us see it as loss, but love allows us to see it as possibility – the birth of the new, which aside from the presence of love, we would be too afraid to envision for ourselves.

Today, allow yourself to embrace the changes in your life.  Savor the mystery; open to the surprise; remember that change is benefaction of love.”     (365 Days of Love, Daphne Rose Kingma, Conari Press)
