It is tough getting older. Things happen that you wish would never happen. You encounter tragedy, you encounter pain and you encounter change. Recently I talked to several people who had to deal with changes in their lives. The change was not pleasant for any of them. One of them had just lost his mother, and it is tough to keep him from unraveling. Another had just lost a job after working at a particular place for 18 years. She lost her job after having some small health issues. It didn’t seem fair. Another one had a stroke and he is learning how to do just about everything all over again. As you go through life “change is inevitable.” How you deal with change will determine how well you can survive. Stress can effect us all (If we allow it to). When things in your life seem to fall apart it is equivalent to being inside a burning house. It is difficult to make a sound decision while chaos is happening all around you. If are young enough, you need to prepare yourself for when tragedy strikes. You already should know that some things you will not be able to do forever. Every person who I have talked to seems to be a little dismayed at all the things that are happening to them right now. If you live long enough no one is immune. Things should get better with these people in time, but right now it is difficult to accept the facts. Your trust in God is extremely important. Your trust in yourself is next. You can make it but you need to believe. Life is not always fair. The way you deal with life’s unfair moments will give you a better realization when it comes to your own quality of life. Pick up the pieces of your life that you have left and prepare to move on. Life is short. Make the most of it while you still can…. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
