Take Shape

“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” – Alan Watts

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” – Wayne Dyer

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” – Wayne Dyer

Embrace change, or at least accept it and move on. Know what you can change and what’s not yours to change. Ground yourself in truth and principles that don’t change with the fickle “weather patterns” of the world. Radical principles like love, faith, grace, compassion, generosity, joy, gratitude. We fritter away too much time pining on people and situations we can’t change instead of what we can change – ourselves. When we know who we are, who we are not, who we can be, we grow, take new shape.

Suddenly, the mundane becomes miraculous. Water goes from rain to snow to an ice sculpture woven delicately through a branch. The multitude of daily blessings reveal themselves as if for the first time, though they have been there the entire time waiting to be seen. Old becomes new. Random transforms into shapes and patterns that we have never seen before. Join the dance.

  1. Ground yourself in truth and principles that don’t change with the fickle “weather patterns” of the world.

    This sentence is the one that resonates with me the most. Too often it seems as though we devote our time and energy to the trends of the current day. Grounding yourself in the unchanging truth and principles is certainly solid advice. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love the quote that begins the post. I found this to be so true as I grieved the death of my young husband. It is that lesson that I try to honor as I help others move through loss. Those who embrace it have the greatest potential to find the light after the darkness…

    • Thank you for sharing about such a personal and deep loss. While the darkness reaches the depths of our soul, we can rise to the light.
