Change, The Only Constant...But Not Always Under Your Control

This list comes via a great little book called The Five Things We Cannot Change...and The Happiness We Find by Embracing Them - David Richo 2005:

  1. Everything changes and ends
  2. Things do not always go according to plan
  3. Life is not always fair
  4. Pain is part of life
  5. People are not loving and loyal all the time

If you live by the Three Promises, you can embrace all this chaos with aplomb and a smile...
  •  Find joy every day. (It's always around, if you look for it.)
  • Do what you love. (Even if you have to squeeze it in between difficult tasks.)
  • Make a difference. (Small things matter; no need to make it major, at least not all the time. 
 Change is not always simple nor easy. But you can make it a little less difficult by choosing to be a player rather than a dupe.
