Adjusting My Sails



I am sailing through this beautiful life enjoying every minute, but also learning that change is inevitable. Nothing lasts forever. Sometimes when you are least expecting it our world as we know it can be uprooted...changed...flooded by waves and changing tides, all in a blink of an eye. One thing I know, is change does make us stronger, though.
And,  I know many of you have heard this before...BUT, change can be good, change brings new unexpected gifts and treasures.

Sometimes we just have to adjust our sails when the wind changes unexpectedly...All we can do is keep sailing and keep going through this beautiful life!

And remember, "It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change..."


I am off to sail my ship....and find the treasure!

Oh, dear. I hope the change is good for you and not too dramatic. Best of luck as you adjust your sails.

Wonderful quote...I've adjusted my sails time and time again, and found new and wonderful things around the corner of dissapointment.
