Changing As We Age

This helps me make long term changes as I age!

While it's difficult sometimes, I try some time-tested steps like making new friends, removing some old ones (unfortunately), making new commitments, taking on new projects, trying new exercises. I like the analogy of a lobster. Each time it expands from within, it sheds a confining shell. People too shed some of our protective structure in each passage from one stage of life to another. 

You might feel panicky and withdraw into your shell. Change leaves us exposed and vulnerable. But taking the new step is infinitely less frightening than being stuck in a rut for years!

Good night and talk to you tomorrow!
