There are universal truths to life

Change is a part of life that we all experience. We have seen the leaves shift in color and fall, the weather get warmer or cooler, the moon and sun rising and falling as days pass. Just as it is in nature, we see the effects of change in our personal lives. We get older and wiser and learn from our mistakes. We feel the pain of loss and the joy of birth. We move on from our families of origin to create new homes. We form new relationships that we seek to sustain. We see changes everyday. 

There is nothing so stable as change
— Bob Dylan
It’s never too late to be what you might have been
— George Eliot
