Day 286, October 23
"Everything in life that we really accept undergoes a change. So suffering must become love. That is the mystery." ~ Katherine Mansfield
I had to read and re-read this quotation several times to gain even the slightest understanding of it. When I saw the word "change," I wanted to stop reading. I don't like change. I don't adapt well to it. I resent changes in my life.
When my sister died, I had to adapt to the biggest change and challenge in my life. I had to find a new way to live, to accept, to love. The mystery is that I've done as well as I have (which isn't really very well at all, but it's all I have).
Joy for today: accepting change.
