“There is nothing permanent except change” - a quote attributed to a Greek philosopher, Heraclitus of Ephesus. Ironic? Not sure I agree with it…
A word that provokes emotion in a lot of people. Change can be good, longed for and exciting, but change can also be scary, difficult and confusing. It is easy to become anxious and fearful about change as there is uncertainty about the future and we don’t feel in control.
At the start of a new year and a new decade, there seems to be a lot of talk about change. We hear every day in the news how the world around is changing. It was only 12½ years ago that the first iPhone was launched - how things have developed since then! Even in Bicester we see all of the new houses and shops being built. We are living in a more transient society - people move around more, both with jobs and homes. Change is to be expected. It can bring both opportunities and heartache.
