Change happens to us all. It is the one constant in our lives, yet because it is unfamiliar and uncomfortable we struggle and resist it.

Change might be gradual or quick, but either way people tend to find it uncomfortable. The real problem is not the change – deep down we all know change is always going on around us – it is acceptance of change. More precisely, it is refusal to accept change.

When change happens, the process of acceptance, when we come to terms with and adapt to change, is called transition. Transition takes time. It too might be gradual or quick, but it always seems to take longer than we’d like.

Like the weather, we know something will happen. Change happens anyway, we can’t predict what or when so we might as well embrace it, because we certainly can’t prevent it.
