Change is a fact of life. Like or not we will get older. Our minds will get sharper then grow duller. Out bodies will get hard then grow softer. Friends will come and go. Loved ones will enter this world while others exit. If we have children, they will grow up and become independent adults and leave the nest. Our careers will follow a natural arc of emergence, growth, maturity and decline. We will have periods of minimal responsibility and other moments where it feels like we are overwhelmed with life/work obligations. It is difficult to grasp at times, but very few things will ever stay the same.
Change is a fact of life. Everything changes. People change. Circumstances change. How much change have you seen in your own life? My father who is now 82 once walked me through the changes he had seen in his lifetime and it was startling. The world as he knew it as a child no longer exists. Some changes are good others aren’t so good, but they will happen nonetheless.
