yesterday while talking with caregivers we were talking about change. I know none of us like unpleasant change in our life, but I think when something unpleasant change comes in our life, if we just wait a little & let life of river unfolds at its own pace sometimes something better will come out of it. I know I am still young but by handling stroke in my young age I feel more confident about myself of handling anything life will throw at me. I admit I am scared silly of changes, but looking back at my own life I feel confident in my ability. I feel life is like river of change, and when we flow with current of change in life, life becomes much more pleasant, instead when we keep on resisting change in our life, we become tired & depressed. So I feel now I am going to practice this as my meditation, any time something I don't like happen in my life, instead of resisting & hating, I am planning to remember how my past changes in life has made me today who I am so proud of today. & anyway we don't know what lies in our future & without knowing it, it will be silly to assume it will be bad only. So it helps to stop fighting the changes happening in our life.
looking at life it feels like we are constantly changing from infant to young to adult, getting married, having kids, falling sick, kids growing up & flying from the nest. I realise in all this life journey only change & yourself are constant companion, so better be kind to yourself & change & stop fighting with both of them & enjoy life.
