Return to Normal

After we experience sentinel life events (death, separation, turmoil, illness, poor choices, etc) we
often talk about our desire to get back to normal. The problem is that we can no longer return to what used to be. Our circumstances & life results have created a new normal that we must adjust to. No matter how much we might long for it the old status quo doesn't exist anymore. 

How will we adjust to this new standard? Continuing to search for something that isn't available will only frustrate us and those our attitude affects. Our ability to adapt will determine our sense of peace and our maturity. Our inability to adapt will heighten our level of discomfort and create rifts in our relationship with God and the people we care about.
