Going Forward

Personal growth and development requires releasing old patterns.

 Think of a lizard, shedding its old skin; it has to give up that comfortable, well-fitting, all stretched in the right places skin in order to enjoy the brilliant, shiny new look.  To grow and develop as a person, you have to give up old, familiar ways.  Some of them you might be rather fond of.  A baby has to give up having people do everything for it in order to gain independence.  (but it was kinda nice getting all that service...!)  It's the same for the lizard, the human baby and the human adult; it just gets a little more complicated for the adult.  The point is, if you are going to progress, you have to let go of some of what came before.

"Embrace Change
The important thing is this:  To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.  --  Charles DuBois"

quote from STAND! publication, Options

How do you feel about change?  Do you resist it or welcome it?
