Even though change is good, it’s still disruptive and painful. Today has been difficult, and these past few weeks have been tough as well – I think because at some level I know I’m helpless to stop change; I just have to ride the wave as best I can. Dark and unstable moments like this force me to dig deep for gratitude. So, today, I’m grateful for clean. Clean sheets, clean kitchen, clean clothes. I’m grateful for my freezer. And, I’m grateful that at some level I know that whatever comes out of this turmoil will be for my greater and higher good. Acceptance must be my mantra.
