"The secret of a happy life is to accept change gracefully." ~ Jimmy Stewart
I loved Jimmy Stewart - he was a role model for me. Did you know he also had a noted military career and was a World War II and Vietnam War veteran, who rose to the rank of Brigadier General in the United States Air Force Reserve. (Wikipedia)
He wanted to be a pilot. Married for oodles of years to the same women. Had adopted children that never wrote tale all books about him. His dad didn't want him to be a star - never thought it was good enough. Respected his dad - but did it anyway.
So do you accept change gracefully? I have learned to accept change gracefully in many ways - in some things - accepting change gracefully is much harder.
Mine was the loss of my best friend a year ago. Still hard for me to accept. To change plans - no problem. To grow old - hmm, so far so good, but 60 is looming up soon . . .
What about you?
