Seasons, they are changing … As you know, I write about self-help topics in this blog. I’m always striving to be the best me possible, in life and love. So with today being the first day of Autumn the topic of today’s post is change.
Starting around the age of 22, I’ve collected poems, quotes, and books about all things self-improvement. I purchase every new book about being happy, how to be more self-aware, how to love without fear, or how to be inspired, and much more … Hi, my name is Bella and I’m a self-help junkie.
As I wrote above, today is the beginning of Autumn. The start of a fresh season for the environment outdoors and a personal change for me. When I turned 30, I vowed to be happy, be in positive relationships, to avoid negative people, and to be loved. These are things that I still strive for today. Although I have come to realize that sometimes no matter how much work I put into them or how badly I want any of those things I cannot wait for them. Time is our most valuable possession and it is best to spend it wisely.
We form relationships with people with the hope that they will be positive. For the most part any relationship can be looked at positively if you look at it through the right lens.
For the large part though, the nature of life is change. And change can be a real bitch, especially in relationships. We stake all of our certainty on them and then (sometimes out of nowhere) that comfy relationship has been changed forever, for better or worse.
As I wrote above, change is a part of life and can be viewed as bad or good. If your lens is blurry right now, like mine, join me in reading the quote below.
“People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you figure out which one it is,
you will know what to do for each person…
“When someone is in your life for a REASON,
it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty;
to provide you with guidance and support;
to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend, and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.
“Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
“Some people come into your life for a SEASON,
because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it. It is real. But only for a season.
“LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons;
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person,
and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.”
