Change is the only Constant

Change is the only Constant

Just when I think I have the way to live, life changes ~ Hugh Prather

Hello friends, man it’s been a busy few weeks and it’s not quite over yet.  I’ve been very busy at work, the end of the school year is always a hectic time.  However, it’s also a really uplifting time, an excellent reminder of why we do the work we do in education.  A great time of year to hear some truly remarkable stories about how people’s lives have changed.  Which is what brings me to what I want to talk about tonight, changes.

I love the quote by Hugh Prather, it seems to really sum up the way I’m feeling lately.  Just as soon as you feel like you’ve got things worked out, well there you are, and you don’t.  So you keep making adjustments, keep making changes, try and find the best way forward.

Positivity is the key, stay positive, stay focused and move forward.  I’ve been busy for a lot of reasons, some of which are of course the job.  Some are really positive, working on the blog, marketing my book Appalachian Trail Happiness and continuing to work toward my goal of 10,000 followers.  Of course all of that is sort of my new normal these days, but there’s been a bit more going on.  First, I’ve just moved.  A huge change in itself I have moved from the middle of nowhere in the desert to the edge of the sort of small town at in the desert.

Of course moving all of your worldly possessions and having to scrub clean a giant house takes a lot of time.  Happily I’ve done it over about three weeks which reduced the intensity, but not the level of work.  I finished cleaning the house last night, it’s a relief.

I’m excited for Memorial Day weekend, a trip up north is in order where I will get to officiate the wedding of two friends to each other, as well as see a number of people I haven’t in quite some time.

There are more changes just on the horizon but I’ll hold you in a little bit of suspense.  I mean hey, I’ve got to build readership right?  But I assure you the next surprise is only a few weeks away.  The thing I want you all to take from this is that much like happiness, the effects of change are a choice.  We can fight change but it’s a ridiculous fight, change will always happen.  So you may as well get used to it, hell, maybe even learn to embrace it.  Change can be a good thing, happiness can be yours, you just need to make the right choice.  So tonight, as tired and worn out that I am, stubbornly writing instead of going to bed early with two early mornings in front of me, I’m looking forward and staying positive, grateful for what I am able to accomplish.  I’m on a good path and good things are coming, for me and you my friends ~ Rev Kane
