Life is Moving and Changing

"Change has a bad reputation in our society. But it isn't all bad — not by any means. In fact, change is necessary in life — to keep us moving ... to keep us growing ... to keep us interested . ... Imagine life without change. It would be static ... boring ... dull." ~Dr. Dennis O'Grady

Life is Moving and Changing

Life means constant change,
movements and heart beats range.
Face what comes, be flexible,
Live in peace and happiness if possible.

When you gripe and oppose,
Life still forces you down the road.
Relax; know that all works are for good,
Be wise, calm and watch your mood.

Realize that you cannot force others
to love or help you in your travels.
When you find true contentment
you'll be truly happy and independent.

Learn from the past, but have high hope
for a better tomorrow to develop.
Always be thankful, face what comes,
and your life will become adventuresome.

The real success in life is when you know
you are the one who attracts happiness or sorrow.
Learn to relax and know all works are for good,
When you believe, you'll never be misunderstood.

When you learn and accept the lessons,
life moves you forward.
With more wisdom,
Life will be joyful and complete.
When you know who you are... 
you will be fearless!

  1. So very true Coreen. I say embrace change, you never know what it will bring, but it could be even better than thought. Have a wonderful week.

  2. I think too - that since life is always changing - the people who can accept change and can deal with it - do better - live longer - and are healtier then those who can't adapt to change.

  3. You are wise in your old age ;) I have no choice but relax, I'm so sore I can't move :)

  7. This is a wonderful poem. Nothing is permanent is life except change and as long as we're willing to accept changes though hard at times, we will be happy.

  8. There are some very good thoughts here today Coreen. I don't mind change ~ it's truly the world we live in isn't it? But sometimes we need a reminder of all that.

    Excellent post my friend!
