Constant change

I saw a documentary about the Swedish artist Loreen, who won the Eurovision Song Contest ten years ago with the song "Euphoria".

In the documentary, she explains that the song was an important chapter in her life, but she doesn't want to recreate it. She wants to move on.

She then adds that most people don't like change; they feel safe with what they have.

But you can't stop change; everything changes. As the famous saying goes:

The only constant in life is change.

Many of our problems would disappear, or at least feel more like challenges than "things that should not happen", if we were willing to accept this universal truth:

Change is inevitable.

Change is an essential part of our lives. Sometimes stormy, sometimes calm — and everything in between. It's perfectly natural.

We wouldn't be here if it weren't for change. Change is constant evolution. If anything, we should be grateful to have change as our faithful life coach.
