Changes

Kay L. Rice

The only constant in this life is change.
Only with trial will the actor take the stage.
To let go of what we think is safe and what we know,
Is the only way to reach, where others fear to go.

The caterpillar spends its days on sunshine and leaf,
The summer days are lazy, but they are so brief.
Through pain and the shedding of the skin,
A new life as a butterfly she will begin.

The ugly duckling, shy and shunned from the crowd,
Silences it’s squawk because she cries too loud.
Yet through the nights and as the days grow long,
She becomes the swan, the herald trumpeter of song.

The only constant in this life is change.
Only through trial will the actor take the stage.
To let go of what we believe is safe and what we know,
Is the only way to reach, where others fear to go.

    Thanksgiving is a time for transformation for many of us. For some it is an opportunity to cook our best feast, put out our finest china, and display ourselves and our homes. For many it will be the beginning of a weight gain that we know is coming. What we choose to do about it is the difficult change that lies ahead.
    This poem. ‘Changes”, was written by my wife, who has seen a multitude of changes within her life. The struggles she has endured, the 200 plus pounds she has lost, and the drive and commitment to make it happen, are visible many ways.
    It is often said, if you don’t like something then change it. It is not always that easy. Sometimes we have to change ourselves. Many people begin a new year with a resolution to lose weight. It can be a very scary beginning and a hard journey. The outcome of perseverance is worth the time and effort spent. You are your most valued investment, invest in yourself wisely. What is it that stops your change? Make the change that you want to see happen, a reality.
    In fitness, Bob
