Change is a part of life. From crawling to walking to running, you go through so much change in your life that if look back to where you were even 1 year ago it’s amazing to see how much of a different person you are. On a daily basis you grow and learn so much that while these changes seem insignificant initially, overtime they end up changing the entire foundation to who you are. But generally this microscopic change isn’t the change that people refer to when the say “my life has changed”. They are usually referring to those large chunks of transformation you only go through a few times in your life and it is these large changes that people hesitate with and are afraid of.

But I’m here to tell you that change is very manageable. As long as you get your mind into the right perspective and look at change in the right way you CAN overcome your fears and reservations.  So with said whether you just went through some big changes in your life or are expecting to soon; I feel these quotes should be very helpful in getting your mind to where it should be. These people have gone through what you are going through now and their wisdom and insight can be very helpful on your journey.
