Make Friends with Change

-A A +A

“The only thing that does not change is change itself.”

May I share with you what dynamic writer Ms. Denise Ysabel D. Salvador wrote about this topic.
"There will always be a time where we would all face different moments in our lives. Moments which will determine whether we grow as a person or get stuck where we are. These moments go along with change. We would always come across big moments that will change our lives forever. Change is not something we can stop but rather something we should accept and learn from.

We have all gone through our own challenges and traumas. This is always hard to cope with but this is also the reason why we have loved ones to help us recover. Do not shy away from trying to talk to someone who cares about you, they might surprise you. We all need someone to comfort us too. But some challenges may even be difficult for others to understand. This is why I say this to you; do not let horrible experiences take over your life. Only you can release yourself from your own demons.
I know that some moments may get extremely difficult to bounce back from but no matter what happens just remember this when things get seemingly unbearable and when you feel alone; do not worry about the change you are facing right now because that will eventually change too. You will get through this because you are also your own strength. If you are alive, that means you are still there to help yourself recover from what is causing you a great deal of pain.


Do not give up on yourself. Get up and accept that you may possibly fall again one day, just don’t forget to get back up and learn from every moment you face. Even if that seems impossible, know that nothing is ever impossible. It is the choice that you make in the end of every option you are presented with in your life that will determine if something is truly impossible.

We also have to remember that we cannot change anything from the past. All we can do is grow from those experiences and move on. We may get stuck for some time, but there will always be a way to keep moving. Just don’t blind yourself from seeing the light within the shadows. It is always there, it always has been."

Yes, thanks Yza. I agree with you Yza. We understand the changes in our lives; thereon, we learn their lessons. Our past experiences can guide us in this 21st century.
For example, in my case, I faced the change from being a banker/financial person in 1994 as I shifted to the world of mass media. Thereafter, after resigning from my job at a lending investor firm in Angeles City, I tentatively stepped on the pathway of Kapampangan mass media work. I joined DWGV FM as an initiate in radio broadcasting. Then I became a columnist.
What an exciting adventure it was.

Today, I am celebrating my 20 years in the mass media field. Lighting up my journey of change throughout my life's career are the gifts of wisdom and insights mass media afforded to me.
Yes to new choices and options in our work environs. 

Today, please join me in celebrating life.

Let us appreciate this very moment. It is all that we have.  This present and precious here-and-now is valuable. Let us befriend the wind of change.

Blessings to all.
