Time may change me
But I can’t trace time
– David Bowie, Changes
I’ve never been very comfortable with change. Change is scary and I tend to like things just the way they are, but change is also exciting and usually means something wild or wonderful is about to happen.
Change comes in many forms; there are big life changes: losing a loved one, getting married, having a baby, adding a pet to your family, moving to a new city or quitting your job to start your own business.
Physical changes: losing or gaining weight, discovering another laugh line on your face or dyeing your blond hair red.
There are soulful changes, too like altering the way you think about things, changing your mind, attitude or perspective. These are typically tougher changes but usually the best kind.
Whatever the change, no matter how uncomfortable it makes me, in my experience change is almost always a good thing and hard as I may try, often unavoidable.
Here’s a list of some changes I am always okay with:
- toner cartridges
- water in the fish tank
- oil in the car
- light bulbs
