" The secret to change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. " Socrates

These words, few in number, speak volumes. Like seasons change, life changes, how we accept it, is how we are able to benefit and progress from it.

For me, making the choice to CHANGE our residence from Ohio to SW Florida was difficult. We did it because my husband's ill health warranted it. It was difficult leaving Genoa Ohio, leaving my close family behind, I had three kids from 21-10 years old. We CHANGED their friends, schools, jobs, everything in our life CHANGED. Was it easy? No, however what it did for us, despite all the tears and struggles of making a CHANGE, it allowed my husband to enjoy 12 years we didn't think we had left, in the sunshine, to be able to fish and boat everyday on the Gulf of Mexico, if he wanted. It allowed us to bring our children with us, and now they have spouses and grandchildren, he got to enjoy the life he wanted while he was alive. Had we waited for "retirement" to live, he never would of had it, as he passed away. This CHANGE, that looking at it short sighted if I may say, I wasn't looking at the progress it would bring in my life long term. I have learned to accept CHANGE, to focus all of my energies on the NEW, and I am always amazed at the wonderful progress.

To my friends, family, co-workers, customers and clients I always say live in Today for the progress in your life tomorrow. Change can be scary, but you know what's scarier? Allowing FEAR to stop you from GROWING, EVOLVING and PROGRESSING.
