Change is an interesting word. The dictionary presents several definitions both as a noun and a verb.
What is it? Is it good or bad? Do you resist it? Do you look forward to it? How does it affect your personal life? Can you adapt? Are you positive or negative to change?
Change is all around us whether we like it or not. I’m not one who is good at accepting when things change in my life. Some things are inevitable and I have no control – growing older, friends passing away.
I can deal with other things, changing the color of my hair, picking out a new lipstick color and accepting that life goes on in many areas that affect me.
One area of change is the topic of global warming. Who do I believe? I’m not a “green” devotee, but I have done the some things – changed light bulbs, bought a low-flow toilet, use an evaporative cooler when AC isn’t required, bought double-paned windows with low-e. I could do much more, but change also costs money that can be in short supply and/or hard to give up.
The one area of change that affects us all is politics. I voice my opinion on who is doing what and how I agree or disagree. Unless I become an activist and get involved, I don’t do much about future changes, other than bitch and moan.
At present, political parties are scared because of possible change. New people with very different views are being elected to run against the establishment. Some are good; some seem whacky. Whatever happens, my life will feel the effects of the November elections
One thing is constant – there will always be change. How we deal with it is the big question.
