Change In Your Pocket

I could sit here and lecture you about change. However, I'm not going to do that. Everyone has heard the same old speeches; 'change is scary,' or ' when one door closes another opens,' and blah blah blah. I am also not going to try to convince you that all change is good. In fact, change can be very bad. ( I can't wait for the optimists to attack me for that one.)

Do you really want to know what change is? Change is change. It is a redundant but true statement. Change is a new direction or different path; a path that can lead anywhere. One of the most important things about change is that you are in control. A change occurs and you control its outcome. You have the power to decide whether or not that change will be negative or positive.

When life gives you lemons will you take the time and effort to gather a pitcher, some ice, sugar, juice them and make lemonade? Will you take the time and put in the work needed to turn sour lemons into delicious lemonade? Or, will you just sit around and complain, or wait for someone else to come by and make lemonade for you?

The choice is entirely your own. The work you put into it is entirely your own. Besides, accomplishing a difficult task on your own through hard work and perseverance makes the reward taste sweeter.
