Lately, I’ve been reflecting on “change” and just how hard it can be for some to accept but also how hard it is when you are the person making the changes or asking for changes that others do not want to accept.  These five quotes from the Quote Garden,  make me think about the change I have gone through on my eco-journey as well as the change I try for others to accept to embrace.

    Nice compilation of quotes you have here. Change is really difficult to deal with and we can hurt some people in the process. But what if we are the ones who doesn’t like the change? How do we deal with it?
