    Embrace Change
    When you are aware and accept that everything around you is constantly changing, and that you have no control over 99.99% of it, you are able to embrace change like a close friend! Change is a like a river, constantly flowing and moving things around. The river of life is constantly bringing you ideas, people, situations – each one is an opportunity to be enriched or to enrich others, to grow and to learn. Change is the play of the universe as it entertains us in the biggest light-and-sound show of all time. Why fight it, why not sit back and enjoy the show?

    For March, Gotta love a good %%- Irish Blessing %%- @};-

    I wish you not a life devoid of clouds,
    Nor a life on a bed of roses,
    not that you might never need regret,
    nor that you should never feel pain.

    No, that is not my wish for you.

    My wish for you is:
    That you might be brave in times of trial,
    when others lay crosses upon your shoulders.
    That every gift God gave you might grow along with you,
    And let you give the gift of joy to all who care for you.

    That you may always have a friend who is worth that name.
    Whom you can trust,
    and who helps you in times of sadness.
    Who will defy the storms of daily life at your side.

    That in every hour of joy and pain
    you may feel God close to you.
    This is my wish for you, and for all who care for you.
    This is my hope for you, now and forever.

    You cannot remain unmoved by the gentleness and confirmation of a well-bred and well-trained horse- more than a thousand pounds of big-boned, well-muscled animal, slick of coat and sweet of smell, obedient and mannerly, and yet forever a menace with it’s innocent power and ineradicable inclination to seek refuge in flight, and always a burden with its need to be fed, wormed, and shod, and it’s liability to cuts and infections, to laming and heaves. But when it greets you with a nicker, nuzzles your chest, and regards you with a large and liquid eye, the question of where you want to be and what you want to do has been answered.

    Anyone can achieve their fullest potential. 
    Who we are might be pre-determined but the path we follow is always of our own choosing. 
    We should never allow our fears, or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny. 
    Your destiny can’t be changed, but it can be challenged. 
    Every man is born as many men and dies as a single man.”
