 “Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” 

Lao Tzu

I think I am going to need to keep reminding myself of this over the coming days and weeks. Today marks one of the biggest changes in my life so far – my move to France for the year- and I hope that I have enough courage in me to adapt to and welcome the change. Wish me luck!

“You got a fast car; is it fast enough so we can fly away? We’ve got to make a decision; leave tonight or live and die this way.”

Tracy Chapman, Fast Car

I love love love this song, its so simply put together and it had such deep, meaningful roots to it. I’m a person who doesn’t like change, but it’s interesting because the thought of living and dying the same way is scary; eventually you realise how necessary change is, whether it is external or from within.
