Today’s (Optional) Writing Prompt: How do you feel about change? Do you like routine and predictability? Does it bring you comfort or discontent? Talk about it general or tell us a specific story about a big change in your life and how you feel about it.
Yesterday some friends and I were talking about evolution and, without getting into monkeys or apes or anything like that, I will admit that I grabbed on to E’s statement that life is like a series of many mini evolutions and I ran with it. The way things are done changes. The fashions evolve, your thinking evolves. *MY* thinking has evolved and some things that I was certain of before have now been replaced with things that I just don’t need anymore.
As I’ve been thinking of my own evolution; it’s time for Rachee to make some changes and even though I don’t want to, I know that in the end that things are going to work out for the best. It’s scary starting anything new. I like the familiarity of routine, I like knowing what to expect and the thrill that comes with the new often intimidates me. I also like the delicious thrill when a Eureka moment happens, the click that signals that something good has happened and that I’ve got it. Slowly I’ve been seeing a transformation from the old familiar to the unexpected and it’s not quite as scary or horrifying as I thought. I am excited about the possibilities that something new will bring and I can even understand that while change is change is change it doesn’t have to be a negative and the positive will be the result.
I’m not ready to share yet but just know that a change is a coming and it’s gonna be OK.
