Dear Beautiful Girl,

Most things don’t stay the same forever — they just don’t — no matter how hard we try, no matter how much we resist change, no matter how much we wish we could keep things exactly as they are — most things won’t stay the same forever. This is a good thing!!! It really is!

Almost everything has a season. Every relationships goes through ups and downs and lots and lots of transitions. Every child grows up. Every flower is a bud and then a blossom and then it’s done — and more flowers grow later. Everything gets older every day — every person learns more every day — every life gets richer every day. People change, places change, jobs change, relationships change, fashions change, economics change.

Roll with the changes, incredible you. Cling tight to the things that don’t change — the truths in life that are solid and dependable — and then roll with everything that does change. Change is what gets us where we need to be, what drives us to do things we wouldn’t have done otherwise, and what helps us see things more clearly. Change wakes us up, keeps things exciting and makes us try harder. Change brings on appreciation for where we have been, makes us more careful about where we are going, and helps us weed out everything that is not good for our lives.

Change is good. Sometimes it’s really scary, sometimes it’s really uncomfortable — but change is good.
Everything is going to be ok, it really is.

You are so loved.
