26.02.17 – Today’s COTD is XIII Death
Not every change is as dramatic and stressful as a house move, or a divorce. Sometimes it’s more subtle than that.
Wishing for change happens a lot, but what do you do about it, it can’t always happen on its own, you have to make it happen.
Start the process slowly, minor changes can make major differences to your life and environment. Doing a ‘car boot’ sale, or giving charity shop donation can bring a cleansing feeling to you as the old unwanted things leave you, making room for the new.
Mostly death brings natural changes, the ending of a day, a fizzled out relationship, completion of a project, yet it can bring with it exciting changes like the birth of a baby, a sunrise, a new challenge. Death is wonderful in all its glory, not to be feared, but embraced. It brings changes we may or may not appreciate, yet you will, in time understand why these things happened.
Death is part of life, things end and begin all the time, it is how you embrace it that makes the difference to how it all affects you.
