Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

If you don't want to get fleas, you shouldn't roll with dogs who are infested.
If you want your dreams to come true... stop participating in nightmare inducing activities.
Life is generally not a series of random Murphy's Laws targeting a few unfortunate, innocent souls. Bad stuff happens, but, more often and more likely, bad stuff is something you dragged in on your shoe after sneaking through a path of chosen naivety.
If you want happily ever after, you gotta stop seeking out the villain.
If you hope to be respected, you really need to behave as if you deserve respect.
Need someone to love you? Quit pushing away the ones who care and clutching at selfish ones who never will.
Cause and effect, it's not just a quippy phrase, it's what happens in response to what you chose to do.
If you want to be grown up, then you have to suck it up and act like one.
