So... it is now SPRINGTIME!
They say the only constant in life is change. They are right.
Sometimes we plan out our lives—our days, our weeks, our years—and everything falls into place. But other times, we make our plans, only to have them upended by circumstances outside of our control.
Either way, the only constant is change. Life never remains the same. Sometimes it changes for the better, sometimes it changes for the worse, but always for something different than today.
I find myself reflecting on that fact this morning as I sit at a table typing this. My life is good, and peaceful in this moment. My family is happy, and we are all healthy. I have friends I can rely on, and family I enjoy being with.
It is easy, I suppose, to think life will stay this way forever. But that is not the case. Everything could change as early as tomorrow.
This may cause some to worry. But I do not think the best response is to worry about the future. I mean, the change that is coming could be a positive one. Besides, worrying won’t change the future anyway. Change is going to happen whether you worry about it or not.
Instead, I think the best response is to fully appreciate this very moment, because it could change at any time.
If life is good, count your blessings, be thankful, and enjoy the moments—every single one of them. Slow down, take a deep breath, and savor this Spring season as best you can.
If, on the other hand, your life is not in a good place, take heart, because change is coming. As the seasons change, so does life. Value love, faith, and hope. Find peace to accept the things you cannot change and courage to change the things you can. But through it all, remember, this is only a season. Things will change, they always do.
If you can only live one moment at a time, you might as well make it the present. After all, we have no idea how long “today” will last… everything could change as soon as tomorrow. I hope you are having fantastic Spring season so far!
MY company / ABOUT ME
The Purse Gummy® accessory was invented and designed by me, Karen, a mother of 3 who was annoyed by her bag slipping off her shoulder. I experienced the common problem of "bag slippage" for many years, and always wondered "Why doesn't someone invent something to prevent this problem?" One day it hit me, since I had a basic conceptual idea of how to prevent the problem by creating simple friction, that maybe I should tackle the issue with my product design!
