The leaves on the treetops are slowly changing colors. The summerbreeze is colder and the sky is full of gray clouds. Change is coming. The turning of the season is just around the corner. Change is inevitable. Change can be something like a long anticipated joyful event, like a work promotion or a coming of a baby. But change can also be painful, like a sudden lost of a loved one or a job relocation. The beginning of the school year is just a week away. No one can predict if it’s going to be a good school year with great friends around you and higher grades; or it could be the most difficult year in an adolescent life where one feels alone and lonely and pressured to conform ones identity according to the social media trends.
Change is coming. Change is inevitable. Life is changing. People are changing. There is nothing we can do about it except to accept and embrace it. Just like the turning of the seasons. By accepting change, we experience the bitter sweet joyful sorrow complicated simple life of a human being, trying not only to survive but to thrive here on earth. Yes, we struggle yet we enjoy life. We set goals and create big dreams despite of the past failures. We strive and aspire new heights despite of the challenges we face ahead. I can say that it is one of human’s greatest strength – we adapt. We can evolve into something greater and wiser; or adapt into the surroundings we are in. Good or bad – who can tell?
