When we are no longer able
to change a situation,
we are challenged
to change ourselves.
My Word-of-the-Year for 2010 has been CHANGE. As the year starts to wind down I’ve been reflecting on what it is has meant for me. There have been some big changes this year and some smaller, more subtle ones too. Of course there have been some changes that I have hoped for, wished for, worked towards…that I just couldn’t make happen. Or at least happen in the way that I wanted. Those are the situations Frankl speaks of. The ones that challenge us to make changes within ourselves.
I’ll be posting my reflection on CHANGE in December. But for now I’m starting to contemplate my word for 2011. CHANGE and I aren’t quite finished though. I’m hoping for one more big one before the year closes. Fingers crossed!
