Change Is Good

So many dread changes in their life, I have always tried to welcome them. Not because I always enjoy them, but because I might as well go with the flow. It will happen anyway, that's what keeps life interesting. 

Time marches on, and if your life was a constant drudgery of the same thing over and over, it would get pretty boring. Usually the changes are for a reason. Of course, you can't always identify the reason immediately, but eventually it will all come to light. I have recently been through a couple of new changes, but when I looked the situation in the face, I knew this was exactly what I wanted and just went with it! Now I have extra time to do what I love, write, and to spend more time with my family.

Another change in my life is one that I have been wanting to welcome for a long time and have now brought it into my life with open arms! With this one, I get to hike more, and spend time in God's country.

Everything happens for a reason, even when you can't for the life of you, understand why. I have been at rock bottom and I could have laid there and died, but I picked myself up and dusted myself off and charged full ahead. 

When I was young I could not decide what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I wanted children, but as a career, I had no idea. I wish I would have listen to my instincts back then and took a leap of faith. I knew deep down I wanted to write and if I would have listened to that inner voice, my life would probably be completely different now. But again, It came at the right time. At least, that is the time life handed it to me. I am grateful I now have the opportunity to do what I love. 

I have learned so much and have met some wonderful people in my life. I am blessed. Now, I am welcoming new friends and I am open to the challenges a head. 

Life is too short to worry about what someone else thinks or does. Take your life by the hand and lead it in the direction you want it to go. There will be obstacles, but meet them straight on. And, above all, enjoy and appreciate what lies in front of you, after all, change is good!

Love, Lisa


  1. Brilliant philosophy! I totally agree. wtg, Lisa!

  2. Thanks Lady M.! Are you ready to be my guest next week? I'm looking forward to it!

  3. Oh boy, I hate change - my husband is now setting up a new laptop for me, which has a newer version of Microsoft -- EEK! Fills me with dread...but on the better side of it, it's really because I NEED it for all of my writing projects and where I'm you're right :)

  4. You're not alone Dawn, but try to go with it, it won't hurt as bad lol!

  5. Very inspirational . Sometimes I find myself fighting change and then realize it will happen whether I fight it or go with it. That realization is the game changer for me.

  6. I go through that too Clare and I'm with you, you can't stop it!

  7. "I wanted to write and if I would have listened to that inner voice, my life would probably be completely different now. But again, It came at the right time."
    That is how I feel too. But all of the experiences we've had set us up for writing about them, so none of that time was wasted.
    I look forward to reading more of your insights.

  8. Thanks Bellybuttonblues, (love the name by the way) I appreciate your comment and joining my blog! I agree with your insight also, how can you write about thought provoking experiences, if you haven't had them because of youth. I'm with you there!

  9. I love change. Hate being stuck where I'm unable to do so (at least right now).

    I too knew I should have been writing at a young age, but I think everything fell into place at the right time.

    Are there days when I think maybe I started too late? Sure. But, then I think back on the sequence of events and know thats just not the case.

    I'm glad I met you, glad I'm on this journey with you, glad that you are now where you want to be.

    Hugs my friend!
