We’re brought up knowing that the one certainty in life, is that nothing is certain. If we know it, and understand it, then why is it so difficult when change comes our way?
Some change is good, amazing in fact. It makes our lives interesting and fun and unpredictable. But the kind of change that comes out of nowhere and slaps you in the face? That’s the change I’m taking issue with today!
People have varying ways of coping with slap-in-the-face change, some better than others of course. But it’s confession time. I am not one of those people. I one of the ones who’s mouth goes dry, nerves build up in my gut and I hover for days between dizziness and nausea depending on the extremity of the change. It all sounds very dramatic I know.
Today I found out something is changing, just as I had arrived at a happy, comfortable, easy, breezy place with it. It’s a new year and it’s all about change I get that – I’ve been talking nothing but change for the past few days and now it’s come back to bite me in the ass! Don’t you just hate when that happens?
A 2015 version of me would have had a complete panic about it, but in the spirit of embracing positivity this year, I’m going to need to embrace the change also. Damn. What was it Lemony Snicket said – if we wait until we’re ready, we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives? I best get on with it so…
Rant over. I feel better. Thanks for listening! 🙂
I think it’s time to go meditate now. Ommmm…
