C is for Change

 Blogging Through the Alphabet 


Some people love it.  They relish it.  They grab it up, shake it and toss it over their shoulder, pushing it behind them with not much more than a ripple of disruption.  But most people hate change.  They fear it, rage against it, fight it with all of their strength, then stumble forward, soul stripped and dripping with defeat.

The truth is...change is inevitable. 

How often have you heard that?  Let me guess. All of your life, right?  To live life to the fullest, we have to not only accept change, but embrace it. Embrace change and live!  I'm sounding preachy this morning, I know.  I'm preaching to myself, I think.  I need to hear this and to truly embrace this, and maybe....just maybe....so do you.

Change is the tide of life, ebbing and flowing, crashing against the higher, more vulnerable outer parts of our souls. Just when we think we can't take it any longer, we surrender and accept it.  We lie on the higher ground of our battered minds, drenched and spent and better than we were before.  

The process can be messy and painful.  Change can really hurt.  Change can cause anger. Change can bring grief.  But always, always, change brings growth, even when we think we are already good enough, smart enough.  And that makes it worth the effort.

Life has a way of throwing a few loops.  Just when you think you have a plan, everything changes and you are tumbling head-over-heels, gasping for air.  When that happens....hang on tight! It won't be long before the tide subsides.

Despite the mess, the anger, the fear, and the pain...

Change is good.
