Did you ever see the movie "What About Bob?" If anyone was afraid of change or a disruption in life, it was Bob.
"Baby steps to the hallway...Baby steps to the elevator." I just love that movie.
I had to write a paper about change in my last class of nursing school. We had to read a book...popular good-business-sense kind of a book. The title was somewhere close to 'Who Moved My Cheese?' I was not thrilled. Wait, I saw how thin the book was and I was thrilled for a moment and then the computer stare down began.
Hmmmm. How should I start? Starting a paper is so frustrating and I like to write!
I decided it was best to begin with how I felt about change.
Change will always happen and there is no stopping it. Play chicken with a fast moving train and see who jumps off the tracks first...Or I suppose you could just meet head on, but you still lose.
I think it's better that we all just stay clear of the tracks and watch as the train passes. Take a good look, feel the wind on your face, cover your ears if you have to, but just give in.
Change is always hard at first. Anytime you say goodbye to Mr. Comfort or an old friend it can be sad and scary, but somewhere down your path you will find "it" all happens for a reason.
I've never believed in signs guiding me. I believe I create the signs I want to see, and do you know what that means?!?!?!? I actually WANTED the change?! Can that be?? Yes, break ups, career changes, new homes, and the loves of my life all came because I wanted them to.
That is powerful.
I've had the argument, "God makes things happen for us. He gives it or takes it away."
I'm on the disagreeing end saying, "No, I make my own choices and make things happen. I just thank God for life."
So, thank you God for life.
I'll keep moving.
