This is my first Five Minute Friday post since the party has been moved over to Kate Motaug’s blog! Hello!! Here goes nothing! This weeks word is CHANGE!
CHANGE. I know most people HATE change. They hate everything about it. They hate it in their personal life, work life, church life, etc. But I don’t really hate change. Depending on what it is I don’t love it either I guess I’m kind of neutral to it.
But then again I have literally moved once every 1-4 years since I was 16. There are times I really desire to be planted somewhere permanently but the idea of it also scares me because I’m not really sure where that “permanent” place is. North, South, East, West?
Sometimes change is bad but more times than not I think change is good. Sometimes in the middle of a change I hate it and am angry about it even but usually after 6 months I come to terms with it and realize it was the best.thing.ever…okay maybe not that awesome but I’ve usually dealt with it.
I remember one change I hated was getting laid off. I felt so helpless. Especially after months later hearing the business was doing twice as much work (and I got laid off due to budget cuts). But because of that layoff I was able to take more classes at once and I found an AWESOME part-time job that I LOVED. It was the best job that I ever had in my entire life. I was happy going to work each day where the job I got laid off from…I really didn’t enjoy that much.
I think change in our lives gives us good and bad perspectives in life and it’s just something that god throws at us and we never know what good will come out of them.
