MY STORY: Change. That's all the seems to be lingering on my mind. I'm seeing it happen not only in my life but also in the lives of those around me. Change isn't necessarily good or bad; it just depends on whether we view it positively or negatively. There's an odd feeling when it first happens. For me, it's initially overwhelming and thoughts are racing through my mind at the speed of light. Why is this happening? What will happen because of the change? What should I do about the change? And then it sinks in. I honestly don't know what the best way to go about change is. I'm still learning to take it slowly day by day and adjust to the change. There is no use in worrying. I've learned that leaving some things behind will allow for something new, perhaps better, to enter into our lives.
