People that know me well know I often joke – typically in a horrible Frankenstein voice – “Change. Bad.” Yet I find that change is inevitable and often (usually?) unavoidable so, rather than resist change, I opt to reframe it. I find it easier to consider change not AS change, but maybe evolution, the next step, whatever.
The reality is, change is coming in my life and I am trying to “get ready.” I think – well, at least for me – change usually comes as the result of some cataclysmic event, some profound and life-altering occurrence. With this impending change, the circumstances are no different (OK, maybe it is cataclysmic “lite”), but I am attempting to reframe the upcoming events in my mind in a new, more positive, everything’s-coming-up-roses kinda’ way… Change. Good.
So, yeah – change is never easy, change is often entered into reluctantly but change is inherently neither good nor bad – it just is. Change. I suppose when I consider the true definition of change: to make the form, nature, content, future course, etc., of (something) different from what it is, I can almost accept it (change) more easily. I also like to frame it up this way – if change is to make the future course something different from what it is, well, I guess that would involve some thought and imagination. Maybe even the formation of DREAMS. Given that concept, it is easy for me to accept change when framed up in the context below. Wish me luck – I’ll keep you posted!
