A note from the Universe on Friday said to me :
"The ease of change, Stew, is directly proportional to one's willingness to reconsider what's best for themselves.
I say let it be easy - Because when change comes, it always means there's something better.
This couldn't have come at a more appropriate time for me. It seems that change is happening all around me, all at once.
There has been people in our neighborhood that made the difficult decision to leave their home and move to Tennessee. And the Assistant Manager at the store that I work at was given his own store, thus bringing us a new assistant. And finally, a long time friend and the owner of one of the funeral homes that I work for made the decision to retire. Which makes his son the new "man in charge" and there's a new second in command there as well.
While I had no complaints with any of the past, I am looking forward to "what's next?" A positive attitude is the first step. I am truly excited for the new management position for my co-worker and for the retirement of a much deserving and still quite young man. It has also opened up new possibilities for two more people. So I can see no faults to any of this. The neighbors will be missed, however I may like the new neighbors even more. We'll see.
Life is full of surprises. And I believe that they are all good ones. I know that the friendships that have been forged will continue and there are new ones to be made. So as the temperature outside plummets and the leaves start to change color, so does life's colors, and beautiful colors they are. I welcome it with open arms and anticipation for the next step.
