Things Change

What Life Throws at Us

About this Activity

Have You Ever Heard the Phrase “The Only Constant in Life is Change”?

If you really think about it, it seems to be true. We humans are often creatures of habit and always seem to want to be in our comfort zones - this is where we feel safe. For many of us, it can be difficult to cope with changes in life.

At the same time, we humans also seem to be very adaptable to change. Almost every day, we can all probably pinpoint something that happened that we were not expecting.

I am always hearing stories of people defying all odds and responding to situations in unexpected ways. Ways that I would never have thought of myself. And this brings me to my next thought- you cannot control the way other people act, nor can you really control any circumstance outside of yourself.

What we can control is how we respond to the situations that come up in our lives. This is the good part. No matter what, we have ourselves, and we determine how we react to what life throws at us at any given moment.

How will YOU respond today?

Wishing you well always,
