Bowing to change

Recognizing the reality of impermanence is fundamental to cultivating a healthy and skillful attitude toward change. Here's an approach that adds reverence to the picture:

Most of all, I encourage people to go into their difficulties and to cope with the change that's taking place even as they are paying attention to it. Our life is nothing but change and it is to this change that I bow deeply. I bow to this change, I bow deeply to life itself.
