Writing around change

Change, both exhilarating and daunting, weaves its way through the tapestry of our lives.

Change can be scary but also very exciting. Imagine moving to a new job after a lifetime in one place or starting a new relationship after divorce.

There are a hundred different ways to embrace change and a hundred ways to fear it.

New opportunities can challenge us and help us to grow.

Something new can help expand our minds and hearts and help us to improve ourselves.

The act of surrender helps to lead us to something different, something better.

When we hold on too tightly to anything it must fall eventually and that can cause distress when we decide to eventually let go.

Take a look at these quotes about change. They are thought provoking and full of wisdom. Try writing a response to each one.

  • Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.
  • Things change. And friends leave. Life doesn’t stop for anybody.
  • Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
  • We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

Is there one quote that stands out for you? Does it feel fitting for your life right now? Do any of the quotes seem harsh, matter of fact, hard to swallow?

Write whatever comes to mind and give yourself full permission to be truly honest on paper.
