CHANGE is indeed the only permanent thing in this world. And what makes life exciting is how you, as a human person who lives with this dynamic world, dance with these changes.
One of its many beauties is having the chance to handle these changes with your special someone. It’s as if your partner is going to serve as your ringing button every time it detects a significant change in you—whether it’s negative or positive—and even list down these changes for you to acknowledge, study, and compare between the past you and the present you. They say that you have found your true love and lifetime partner if you have found someone who brings out the best in you, someone who allows you to reach your maximum potential as a human person, someone who paves the way for you to realize your God-given gifts and share them to the world.
Change is not only to substitute something or to become different. It is not simply the stepping off to a new stage of life nor transferring from a train station to another. If being handled carefully and taken seriously, change may offer you your life-changing opportunity to learn, to grow, to mature. It may be your metamorphosis, your transformation to become the better version of you.
