Here are some great little excerpts from a great little book, about dealing with life's changes and problems, and moving ahead in a positive way. Two little mice, named Hem and Haw eventually learn these life lessons when their "cheese" had been moved from where they were used to finding it:
The Handwriting on the Wall
Change happens - They keep moving the cheese.
Anticipate change - Get ready for the cheese to move.
What would you do if you were not afraid?
Monitor change - Smell the cheese often so you know when it is getting old.
Movement in a new direction helps you find new cheese.
When you move beyond your fear, you feel free.
Imagining myself enjoying new cheese even before I find it, leads me to it.
Adapt to change quickly - The quicker you let go of old cheese, the sooner you find new cheese.
It is safer to search in the maze than remain in a cheeseless situtation.
Old beliefs do not lead you to new cheese.
Change - Move with the cheese.
When you see that you can find and enjoy new cheese, you can change your course.
Noticing small changes early helps you adapt to bigger changes that are to come.
The biggest inhibitor to change lies within yourself, and nothing gets better until you change.
Enjoy Change! Savor the adventure and the taste of new cheese!
Be ready to quickly change again and again - They keep moving the cheese.
