The only constant is change

This morning I was wandering back in time through my old writings  The ones I wrote when I was struggling to accept the end of my marriage.  As I read through I formed a word cloud in my head. The words I saw most were afraid, alone, lost, doubt, false.  It reminded me of the intense pain I felt at the time

Now, three years later, there are still times I have those feelings but they are softer, weaker, less consuming. 
Now the words I attach to most are free, hopeful, energized, enlightened, brave.  I marvel at the changes in my thoughts and feelings.  The resiliency of my spirit to recover from that which I feared I could never endure.
Over the years I hear myself counseling my students, telling them things I know. But-sometime forget to tell myself. All things are temporary especially feelings.  It is necessary to feel them, embrace them, but always know- no matter how painful the moment may be…it to shall pass.

    What a beautiful reflection. My favorite line, “Over the years I hear myself counseling my students, telling them things I know. But-sometime forget to tell myself.” This is not only true for you, nor probably me. Thank you for the gentle encouragement.

    I love the word cloud noticing. I also really like how yours have changed. You definitely are someone that needs to remember the things you so often tell others.

    That’s why you make such an impact on your students. They trust and believe you. That is your silver lining .
