Fill your glass

Change is in the air.  Everywhere.  In all my worlds, things are a’changing.

My experience with change is that when we open up to it with all its uncertainty and instability and rockiness, we emerge on the other side of the rainbow.  Things are different here.  Weird, uncomfortable, vulnerable, brand-new.

Embracing change goes against my nature, but it gets easier and easier every time.  Life is constantly changing, so to fight change would make for a very difficult life.

This is not so much a the-glass-is-half-full approach as it is a fill-the-glass-up approach.  Your glass is your life.  Fill it up.  Drink it up.

There are going to be layoffs at work.  Everywhere I walk I hear mumbling about it.  I hear fear.  Fear of the unknown, fear of the unsecure, fear of losing everything.  My mind wants to join in the mumbling.

I walked outside for lunch.  The sun was shining in a cloudless sky, the wind was blowing wildly.  The richness and beauty of the day blew me away.

Life will fill you up and empty you out over and over again.  It is the natural cycle of things.  Within that cycle we have choices.  I choose to focus on the huge room for growth change brings with it.

The possibilities are endless.
