Each day that passes provides us with the opportunity to witness change occurring. From the sun rising and setting to watching children grow before our eyes - change truly is the only guarantee in this life. So why are we so resistant to it? Why do so many of us feel like change is punishment? When we unexpectedly lose a job, face a breakdown in a relationship, or even experience an unplanned move, our whole world can feel as if it is in completely shaken.
Those changes certainly don't feel good at all. But change is complex - it has many layers. It forces us to grow, and growth is often painful. It can give us that push into pain and discomfort that we so often avoid. And although it may not feel positive, the role of change is ultimately to move us toward personal evolution. To take us to our next chapter in life - a chapter that we can truly write ourselves. When you are in the midst of a big change in your life, keep these 10 quotes with you - they will help to remind you that change does not have to be a negative experience.
