Change

One of the great things about spending my entire adult life in the military is that I am extremely accustom to change. Normally we cannot control what is changing in our lives, but what we can control is how we react to it. I prefer to take change in stride and look more toward the future, because with every change, no matter how confusing or exasperating in the beginning, there is opportunity. The other great thing about change is that we never truly have to start over, we get the added benefit of having experiences and being able to carry those lessons with us. So for me, change, no matter what the reason, is exciting. I don't sit back and idly HOPE that I will do things RIGHT, because there is always room for improvement, I just try and do things differently. As long as we don't make the same mistakes when we are afforded another opportunity we can consider ourselves productive and worth-while. So I just wanted to thank everyone in my life who has caused change, I welcome it, and will NEVER miss an opportunity to do things differently.

That is such an amazing way of looking at things... I don't believe in regret because everything in my life and all the mistakes I've made, have made me who I am today, and I really like that person. :) I guess looking at change, for better or worse, is kinda the same. It shapes who we become.

Cheers to you for rolling with the punches!
