To reap the positive

  Have you ever noticed that animals (our pets) seem to dislike change?
Well it seems to be a built in thing amongst all species of this planet.
Humans are no exception to this fact, seems we are one of the
most effected by our environment. Change can bring either excitement
or fear in us and which we experience is not only up to the individual but
also the situation. In most cases change seems to always be for the better
except for the loss of loved ones in our life. Yet even though the death of
a parent or sibling may be a very devastating blow to our lives it can also
bring good changes along with it. It teaches us of our mortality and
how we should cherish each day we are blessed to have.

  It can also teach us inner strength and remind us of many things that the
departed had taught us in our time with them. We can control most of
how we react and how we are influenced by the changes in life. If we are
both willing and fortunate enough we will always find what positive we
can in each situation. Of course we  always have to deal with the negative
aspects of tragic circumstances but we also can reap the positive that
may be within them. I guess I would rather be a optimist and reap the
positive than go around being the  pessimist and wallow in the negative.
Grief must be a part of life, but it don’t have to be all that life is.
