Life goes on. Whether or not we have a good or bad day, time doesn’t stop for us. And just like a roller coaster, you will always have ups and downs, along with the occasional bends, twists, turns, and loop the loops. These can either be fun, exciting, terrifying, heart-pounding, or all of them, at the same time. The only difference in the experience, is your own reaction — the way you handle such sudden changes.
Many people would agree that change is a hard thing to deal with, but that’s what life offers. Life changes with or without you, whether you are ready for it or not. Most of the time, people find it easier to resist change, than go along with it. If we don’t change, we can comfortably see what lies ahead, where we’re heading, which makes it safer for us to endure.
Have you ever been in a situation where you wish it would change? If things never changed for that situation, wouldn’t you be in the same situation you were in before you decided it needed to change? That’s why change is important. In order to make a difference in your life, there has to be an acceptable amount of change. Change may not always make you happy in the beginning, but it is necessary to make improvements.
Think of your life as a straight road. You can see where to go, you know what to expect, and you never have to worry about where you’re going to end up. That’s what we all hope for, right? Instead, along your road, you may find a pot hole, a herd of cows crossing, a decaying animal on the side… just about anything you put your mind to. You may even encounter a turn, or several of them. These are merely opportunities to change your view or current path.
Change is what brings new adventures and experiences. Change turns failure into success. Change strengthens bonds made in a chemical reactions. Change in electrical potential creates power for electronic devices. Change makes things that seem impossible, much more probable. Regardless of what change brings, it is there for a purpose.
So don’t hate change, embrace it. You might find yourself in a situation you wish you were in, long before the change actually happens.
