Embracing the new normal
For most people, the only guarantee in life is that it keeps changing. Not only do we go through phases internally as we age, but we also change jobs, add children (who also go through those phases), and deal with the ups and downs of finance, politics, loss, and other life events. It is rare for things to stay the same for too long, and when they do, that can present challenges of its own. The only way to stay happy, and sane, is to embrace the idea that life is going to change. Clinging to the way things used to be is a sure fire way to suck the happiness out of life and miss out on the wonders of change. So, today and every day, let go of your attachment to the way things used to be, and embrace your new normal. Embrace the beauty and novelty. Embrace the love and excitement. And when things are stressful, remember that tomorrow is sure to be different, and embrace that as well.
