I Don't "Do" Change

Yeah, yeah..."change makes the world go 'round", "without change, nothing is possible" and "change is inevitable"...I've heard it all before.


I don't handle change well. I like structure. I like consistency. I like to know that tomorrow, everything is going to be the same as it was yesterday. I am not a "roll with the punches" kind of girl. I like to know that I can depend on things to...remain.

Looking at the last year, it's a wonder that I haven't been committed to a place with three square meals, of happy pills, a day. So much has changed.

People have left and people have come back. People have disappointed me and people have surprised me. I've pushed myself further than I ever thought I could. I've been pushed further than I ever thought I could be. I've made new friends and found old friends. I've stood my ground and I've toppled over.

I've grown and I've...changed.


Such irony.

you forgot "the only constant is change." which is one of my favorites!

oh honey, i am SO with you on the whole change thing. i am very structured too. i guess i'm not surprised; this is just one more of the many ways we are alike. ;)

the only change i like is the change I initiate. and even then it takes some time for me to like that change.'s inevitable.
