We're friends, not doctors, financial or legal professionals, and we're not "grief experts." But we are here, and we've been "there."

I am weary of change and love the familiar. One thing I told myself from the day my wife past away in a fatal auto accident is that I will move on but in difficult times finding myself clinging to this familiar path of grief missing my wife. It is ok, we love familiar. This short excerpt from the series Everwood explains it pretty well though a child is explaining it we know there are much more experienced writers behind the scenes who have hashed it out to make it more substantial and significant. 

Long live the difference that lends us the attitudes for adjustment :) I just made that up - B.L. Spears hehe

I have made several very big leaps this year and there are days when all I say to myself is my life is without a net.

"Trying to keep one foot in the past but forced to put one foot into the future."  These words really struck me as being so so true.  sigh.  I hate this for all of us:(

Change has been the hardest part of this for me. It feels most of the time like I'm trying to live in two different worlds. Trying to keep one foot in the past but forced to put one foot into the future. Not an easy way to live.

Change is enevitable.  We cannot get rid of it and we will always have change in our life in some form, shape or fashion whether we like it or not.  The book that has helped me the most with dealing with change in my life and in this grief journey is "Who Moved My Cheese" by Spencer Johnson, M.D.  It doesn't take very long to read it and if you ever want to read it I recommend it.  Thank you for sharing this video.  It is very good and I like it.

Oh the original quote for this is from the French and reads like this 

"Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose."-Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr
