Changes in Life: Do you manage them or just react

“There is nothing permanent except change.”1 Who said that? It’s attributed to Heraclitus, a Greek who lived more than two thousand years ago, and it still holds true. Life IS change— growing mentally and physically, learning new skills, building relationships, raising children and letting them go, losing loved ones through circumstances or death. All that and more.
