The following was said by the character Mack Taylor on the TV series CSI:NY
"You have been blessed with a gift...You can choose to live in a place of fear or you can believe in the best version of yourself."
Ok. In the context of the show, this quote wasn't referring to life changes, but I thought it was so appropriate. Life changes are difficult. I think I read somewhere that it's like riding a roller coaster, and I agree. There will be ups and downs, twists and turns, and some surprises around the bend. You can choose to be the person that glances and looks at the roller coaster but will never take a ride (i.e. living in a place of fear) or you can choose to be the person that decides to get on (i.e. believing in the best version of yourself).
Let's ride the roller coaster so that when the ride is over, we'll be able to say, "That was well worth it."
For I know what I have planned for you,' says the LORD. 'I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I have plans to give you a future filled with hope. (Jer. 29:11 Net Bible)
