Ch-ch-ch-ch Changes (turn and face the strain)

People deal with change in their very own, unique way. Some people truly hate it, some people get all giddy over it. I am the kind of person who acts like I hate it but inside I am secretly all giddy.

Everyday I get to know myself a bit more. This time I have discovered that I actually really enjoy change, even if it’s scary or uncertain. I feel all excited that something is stirring and I am a part of it. I can always see the positives of the change. Always.  Unfortunately somewhere along the way I have picked up a bad habit of acting really stressed and complaining about it the whole time.  Why do I do this? I don’t know. It makes no sense. Maybe now that I see the truth, that I love change, I can stop pretending to despise it and start receiving it with giddiness and positivity.

Naive? Yeah, maybe. Oh well, I’ve definitely never said I wasn’t naive.

As David Bowie said:

Strange fascination, fascinating me
Changes are taking the pace I’m going through

(Turn and face the strain)
Oh, look out you rock ‘n rollers
(Turn and face the strain)
Pretty soon you’re gonna get a little older


More about these changes next week…

    You’ll be awesome at all of the changes!

  2. So funny…because I am so ready for a change!

    I act like change doesn’t bother me, but inside I secretly grow ulcers.

  4. I too act “under pressure” when the “ch-ch-changes” start happening; Thankfully Cara helps balance out my perspective. It’s not the act of change that I find so daunting, in fact once things get going I’m generally all on-board, it’s the getting started that freaks me out. I’ll add some Dylan:
    “As the present now, Will later be past”
    But I am excited to hear more on your and Dustin’s changes!

    In closing: Bowie’s tie is amazing, as expected.

  5. Haha! That was my Braxton-Hicks song (along with Solid as a Rock – )

    BTW – as I’m reading this blog backwards – Congratulations!
