Things Change



  • “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future” – John F. Kennedy
  • “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything” – George Bernard 
  • “If there is no struggle, there is no progress” – Frederick Douglas
  • “Since we cannot change reality, let us change the eyes which see reality” – Nikos Kanzantzakis
  • “If you don’t change direction, you may end up where you are heading” – Lao Tzu

Everyday, life changes, whether we accept those changes / events or not.  Yesterday, I caught myself saying “if something didn’t go wrong, it just wouldn’t be an ordinary day”.  I continued to think “it’s always something” and “I can’t have a day where something bad doesn’t happen”.  Those are some of the most selfish statements I could make with the magnitude of my ordinary daily problems.  In this post, I am speaking of the ordinary things that happen such as having to call a doctors office about a bill that you don’t think is right or having to change your plans to accommodate someone else.  Without conflict or adversity, one cannot and will not get stronger.  Those little changes keep us balanced and build our ability to be solution focused (not problem focused).

Things Change – Tim McGraw


They wouldn’t let him play the opry
With whiskey on his breath
And it didn’t take’em long
to figure out what they missed
He went down that lost highway
Underneath the purple sky
A legend disappeared before his time
Things Change

They said he was the devil
dressed in gold leme
The way he shook his hips
out there on that stage
But before that faithful day
He left Tennessee
All of them were calling him the king
Things Change

Well they like to call them hippies
outlaws with guitars
But they brought a little poetry
To the honky tonks and bars
They might’ve got a little crazy
They might have flew a little too high
Somewhere somebody’s playing their song tonight
Things Change
(Don’t you know things change)

Now some say it’s too country
Some say it’s a little rock n roll
But it’s just good music
If you can feel it in your soul
It doesn’t really matter
It’s always been the same
life goes on
Things Change

Don’t you know they change
Oh, things change
As long as this world is turning
Things are gonna change
Gonna keep on changing
Gonna change
