I added blonde streaks. Cut 5 inches too. Bought a new dress to compliment the hair. Change -- we all need it. It's what keeps us on our toes, interested, and alive. But, what are our expectations of change?

In the past few days, I've felt both the pain and enlightenment of change. The news that a guy you once dated is now dating someone else. It hurts when the news first hits but then you shake it off because just wasn't meant to be. And in time, you'll know exactly why when you allow the truth to settle in.

Some things are not just meant to be. Friendships for example. I've held on to some that I probably shouldn't have. At this point in my life, I barely have enough time to focus on the friendships that deserve it. And I want to focus on the ones that deserve it. Why repair what will always be broken.

In friendship and in love, I've learned in my line of work that the feeling of hope is powerful. At the eleventh hour when all's in despair, you can only look forward to a change that's good....and it keeps all of us living because the idea is, somewhere out there, something better does exist and what can we do but hope that we'll get there. Though, I do agree with Oprah when she says that we all have to pave our own way. Nothing is going to get handed to you on a silver platter. You'll spend all your time waiting if you think so.

Find harmony between reality and hope. Shed some positive light on every challenge you meet. The rough around the edges will eventually smooth out. And believe that the future holds change thats good and all you have to do is reach out and grab it.
