Every year is full of change. Almost every month brings something new into our lives. The one thing that is certain in this world is change. Nothing remains the same for long.
What will happen next? Who knows? Some may feel change is forced upon us. But if we learn to expect changes, life becomes easier to face, so don’t turn away. Turn toward what is coming.
