Change: A River We Fight or Embrace

The River of Change.

We usually find ourselves entering this river suddenly and unexpectedly. Oftentimes the current is so strong that we are pulled in without a chance of eddying out or resting for even the briefest moment. We fight against the river with every fiber of our being and straining muscles. Or we lose hope.

Others embrace the river. They have learned that change is a constant. Instead of swimming against the current, they go with it, allowing themselves to be transformed even though the water slaps and stings and reaches their neck and they have no foothold. They allow themselves to be carried by the river in the direction of change.

Which will you choose: To fight change? Or to embrace it?
