What is going on?
1. A heat wave in NSW..
2. Floods in my old home town of Bendigo and most of Victoria
3. Bushfires in the hills around Perth. 40 homes gone…and..
4. December retail sales figures were better than expected..
Yesterday I attend a wonderful 50th birthday party of an old friend who has been fighting breast cancer for the past 10 or more years.
We surprised her by all 130 guests getting up and singing ‘You get knocked down.. then you get up again…’
There were plenty of tears and laughter and celebration..
Celebrating that life goes on, no matter what..
That through bushfires, floods, cyclones and the ups and downs of interest rates, Governments, Prime Ministers, movie stars and fashion, change and our adaptation to it, is a CONSTANT..
HOW WE HANDLE CHANGE
I did a quick scan for some insights into change and human condition.. and thought I would pass on some to you to help you through this Monday and this week..
He who rejects change is the architect of decay. The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery. ~Harold Wilson
If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it. ~Mary Engelbreit
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. ~Anatole France
When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves. ~Victor Frankl
Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. But unfortunately, although it is true, it is difficult for us to accept it. Because we cannot accept the truth of transience, we suffer. ~Shunryu Suzuki
THERE’S A HIDDEN TREASURE BETWEEN THEM THAR EARS
