Sometimes I think we are so closed to “different” that we miss out on a lot. Different opinions, different ways of doing things, the refusal to roll with it because it is change, my mama told me it was wrong…so it’s wrong! I have a hard time with people who are set in their ways and don’t even want to entertain a healthy discussion, let alone go against the truth they have been taught even though we continue to evolve and change as a society.
I personally find growth in change. I’m one of those purple haired grandmas who doesn’t even like to drive the same route more than a dozen times in a row. I have always prided myself in being a rabble rowzer. I’m a rule follower until I think the rules need changed…I still follow the rules until I can work out a plan to effectively upset the apple cart and find a better way and then work to get it done. Changing things in life does not have to culminate from a loud argument and gnashing of teeth…change is good…change happens whether we like it or not. THose resistant to change are back there while everyone else moves up in the line. If I knew then what I know now, I would have been a louder activist for what I believe in and what I want to see changed….and that would have probably annoyed the hell out of a lot of people….and that makes me smile just a little bit!
Doing the same thing over and over does not make it right. Looking at the color outside the box and realizing that life is an adventure to be enjoyed is dessert!
Until next time….
