life is full of changes. little changes and big ones. we can resist with all our might, but all around us life is still in a constant state of alteration. trees lose leaves. flowers bud. lightning strikes. the earth rumbles. man scurries as an ant or slumbers as a bear. all involves change. your state of consciousness, your state of mind. the path you choose to take. change can be terrifying, but mostly it is great. how else will you learn or grow or become what you are meant to be? who you are meant to be..
