Today’s (Optional) Writing Prompt: How do you feel about change? Do you like routine and predictability? Does it bring you comfort or discontent? Talk about it general or tell us a specific story about a big change in your life and how you feel about it.
I am not as scared of change as most people. It isn't that I like change necessarily but I do not like drama and the only way that I have a true sense of calm in my world is if I run things very smoothly and organized which entails me to change and make tweaks on how I run my day. I guess that sounds good on paper, but I promise you that I am not as organized as I would like to be. My personal life is very normal, simple and quiet and my professional life is very chaotic and busy, sprinkle in the fact that I can never say no, my volunteer efforts are a little hectic as well.
I am consistently on the lookout to change the way I do things to make my life easy. They are always minor changes but I know I am close to being in a zen state of mind without a ton of yoga, xannex or therapy. I am always reading how to and then tweaking another thing about my day to make it that much better.
Even on a Sunday when I should be relaxing I am trying to work on as much of Monday's tasks as I can to get that much ahead. Change is not scary, it can be good if you are in control of what is changing, and what the outcome of making the change will be. I would need another five minutes (or hours) to talk about when change isn't in your favor, but luckily I get to stop here.
