For a very long time I refused to believe the saying ,”life is full of ups and downs”. In my opinion, believing such a saying would imply I would have to continuously live life with the knowledge that every good thing I enjoy could be lost when life decides to go down, I was wrong!

Spread your wings on your way down

 

You see, God created life to be full of ups and downs. In the book of Ecclesiastics Chapter 3, it explains that life is designed to flow in seasons. A time to laugh and a time to cry. It is the various seasons that makes  life meaningful, in other words we cannot go through life without changing seasons.

It is important to state here that the people that are most adversely affected by changing seasons are those that haven’t prepared themselves and as such cannot embrace it.

The truth is that when the season of a thing comes, there is very little we can do to stop it.  The best we can do is to embrace it. One shouldn’t love his sweater so much that he wears it in the heat of dry season. When winter comes you better grab a coat, get it ?

Spread your wings on your way down

The first reason people find it difficult to embrace change is that they aren’t prepared for it.

Joseph in the Bible became the prime minister of Egypt because he saw that a change was coming. Rather that deny the change or run away from it, he chose a different approach. He devised a strategy to embrace the change and make it his ally. When the change came in the form of a food crisis,  he was ready and the whole of Egypt became the food basket of nations.

The first step towards making the most of change is the ask the right questions.
