Since I was in 3rd grade, my life has constantly been changing. For years, change was daily due to my dad moving from job to job and we moved from rental home to rental home. That meant we moved schools constantly and were always trying to make new friends. Change to me can either be good or it can be bad. It all depends on how you handle it. As I look back now I can see where I handle things differently when I face change. I could get upset and totally lose it if something is just not right but I honestly have learned to go with the flow. After a while, circumstances change and things have a way of working themselves out. If we can find that place of peace and really sit on that and believe things will work out, we can really walk through change with a different mindset.
Remember, change is inevitable. Become an expert at handling change and embrace it. Trying to stop it will not only cause you stress but it will bring you down and make the future tough to anticipate. Change has made me who I am today. I have been working with our family business now for over 25 years. Even this very day, I am walking through change. Of course I don’t want to change my ways or habits, but I must, if I want to keep moving forward. At times when change comes my way, I don’t want to embrace it. I kick and scream for awhile and demand my way. But soon, I come around and embrace my new life. Change keeps you on the go and opens you up for new vision and ideas for your life. It makes you a better person if you give it a chance.
A very positive change is coming to our institution. With the new name and the new brand image of Waldorf, I expect huge growth and change from Waldorf. I hope you are all as excited as I am to the future of Waldorf University.
