Change is in the air, & soon to be in the Oval Office. Though the country is divided on whether this will be good change or bad change, it will definitely be change.
Here are some wise women’s thoughts about change:
I never wanted what I thought I wanted
But always something else
Which changed again as soon as I had found it.
-Mary Carolyn Davies
Fluidity and discontinuity are central to the reality in which we live.
-Mary Catherine Bateson
Better never means better for everyone…it always means worse for some.
You must not change one thing, one pebble, one grain of sand, until you know what good and evil will follow on that act.
-Ursula K. Leguin
Once an old woman at my church said the secret is that God loves us exactly the way we are and that he loves us too much to let us stay like this, and I’m just trying to trust that.
All birth is unwilling.
-Pearl S. Buck
May you have the courage to work against bad change, the flexibility to roll with odd change, & the good sense to celebrate positive change.
