Resistance To Change


I've long thought that I was a creature of comfort who resisted making certain changes. I love to go to work on the same familiar path. I often order the same food at restaurants that I know I'll enjoy. I sometimes resist changes....even the small ones. Even the ones that are good for me. I'm often sentimental and nostalgic about keeping things the same.

This is a time of great change, and many of those changes aren't easy. I find that I even argue with God about..."Do we really have to do THIS???"

I know that change creates a lot of hard work, requires a lot of creative ideas, and interrupts the regular routine.

I also know that it's easy to fear the unknown and change often brings a dose of the unknown.

What I know for sure is that God is with me in it all! He walks with me and encourages me as I face changes, some I long for and others that scare me.

My prayer is that I face the upcoming changes with a new sense of confidence, knowing that I need to "Let Go!...and Let God!"

Hugs and God Bless! Love, Linda

Sometimes fear of the unknown can be a bit terrifying. God never gives us more than we can handle though, even change.

I love you.

Thank you for sharing the real parts of life's journey with me...

Change is sometimes hard, but I also find that it can be motivating, inspiring, fun, and creative. Times of change are usually great times of learning too.

I love you, Mom.

For 3/4 of the human brain, change requires 100 times more metabolic energy second per second..........

Change is typically an amazing thing on the other side, however in the middle of the tranformation it can take a toll on the physical and emotional body.......

What ever challenges your life is taking you through right now, remember to give yourelf the gift of rest.............

A tired,exhausted and over spent brain is not a healthy brain.....

Anything I can do to bless your life - just ask.............

Loving you and sending your beautiful heart a hug.............

What a joy to find you online Linda! Ever since I was in Spokane last fall at my sister's I've wondered how to get in touch with you. (Her daughter attends SCC.) Anyway your words here bring back awesome memories for me, and I hope to write you soon. Let me know if that's okay and here's my email: nsrn444@aol.com. Blessings and enjoy this lovely spring!
