Embracing Change

The new year is a time for starting over, setting goals and writing resolutions of change. The initial decision to lose 10 pounds, save for that dream vacation or clean out the hall closet can be thrilling, but overtime can become over whelming or even borderline impossible. But what happens when you are forced to change? A fall from a cliff, a diagnosis of ovarian cancer, or a divorce is a life-altering experience. Wasatch Woman magazine discovered three amazing women who have faced potential roadblocks — eventually walking and rolling over them to emerge even stronger on the other side. Discover the thread of perseverance found in each of their stories. We glean strength from others to face our own inevitable challenges. In our life, our health or our wealth we all must learn to embrace change.
