CHANGE can you adapt

CHANGE can you adapt


CHANGE- “Can you adapt?”


Change is a word that is casually used in many conversations…”Oh, I can change clothes” or “I changed my mind on what restaurant I want to eat at tonight.”  It’s used without much thought to its true meaning.


Webster’s Dictionary defines CHANGE as…“to make different in some particular”, to give a different position, course or direction”.


 To actually think about change and how it will affect oneself is hard, not necessarily due to what it will mean in the future, but because of what it will mean now, in the present; change is a verb, therefore to change requires action.  Some people want to change something about their life, but don’t want to put forth the actions required to do it.  When we are used to doing things the same way day after day because it’s working, then we are satisfied.  When things aren’t working the way we want them to or if we have reached the ceiling on what we are currently doing and we say “things need to change”, what we really mean is we need to change


Just because we recognize that we need to make changes doesn’t necessarily mean we’ re better or smarter, it just means we have grown weary of how things are.  Therefore, instead of sitting still, which is the easiest thing to do, we need to take the action that is required to change and not expect the current situation to change for us.


Once you decide to take the “action” to change, you regain your motivation.  As a wise old woman once said….”action generates action”. 


The changes I have made over the past couple of weeks were not easy, but then change never is.  It first requires an idea, then it has to be thoroughly thought out and then it has to have action put into it.  While it hasn’t been easy to make some changes in my life, it has definitely reignited motivation and movement in me.


So to answer my own question…YES I can adapt to change, it’s so much better then the alternative which is to lay dormant, take no action and always wonder….what IF I had made that change?

    Yes, I am ready for change. I'm so tired of paying someone else mortgage. Everyone says its a lot harder now to buy a house, but I refuse to give up. I'll find the perfect house for me and make the much needed change in my life.
