We like to have everything planned out to the last detail…. Everything must be perfect, nothing can go wrong… Not now not to me… but when has that EVER prevented things from getting messed up….
Life to is too fragile, vulnerable to change….Change can be either good or bad…. but since when do we complain about change when its good… as friendships get stronger… as our love grows…. as our wealth accumulates.
Are we at the receiving side weeping about it all ? On the other hand, a close friend, relative or sibling dies, fail an exam, get sick or age…How come we are first in line to complain and curse everything we embraced when change was moving favorably.
Maybe, it is cos we get so happy and worked up about ‘happy changes’ that when ‘sad changes’ transpire, we react with negative emotions. How about if we were just unemotional to change AT ALL irrespective of its impact on our lives.
Wouldn’t life be so much simpler, less painful or less stressful. What I am trying to get at is what if we were unemotional to ‘change’ as a concept. We think nothing of it, just like being ‘white’ or ‘black’, I wouldn’t care if someone is ‘white’ or ‘black’, it is irrelevant and I just accept it as a ‘matter of fact’ and move on….
Argh… if life was this simple….
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
