Since it’s the beginning of a new year, I felt it fitting to talk about change.  Some people welcome change into their lives, while others find it hard to accept it (such as myself).  If you’ve been wearing your hair the same way for four years, why would you want to change that if it’s what you like and what you’re used to?  Probably because you don’t realize how much a change is needed.  It never hurts to branch out and try something new every once and awhile.  

          Change has never been easy for me, but I can certainly say it’s taught me a lot in my life.  Fortunately, God decides when it’s time for a change, because otherwise I wouldn’t be where I am today.  I love my routines and habits so much, that I don’t even realize how bad they may be.  Or maybe they’re not necessarily bad, it’s just time to grow out of them and try something different. 

          And not all changes will be good.  Sometimes it’s hard to understand why things happen the way they do, but you just have to remember that there is a reason for it, even if the reason isn’t clear in the beginning.  Maybe moving to another state and to a different school isn’t what you desired, but maybe it was time to experience new things and meet new people. 

          Nothing here on earth is permanent.  I hate to break it to you, but nothing lasts forever.  Things are always going to be constantly changing.  People are going to come and go from your life, because people and their feelings are constantly changing as well.  Someone you love today may not be the person you’ll love in five years.  Your teacher may decide teaching just isn’t her thing anymore, and she wants to try a different occupation. 

          So you see, you can’t hold onto things forever.  You can squeeze it in your hands as tight as you can, but it will eventually slip away.  And there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it.  You just have to accept that it wasn’t meant for you anymore and you’ll come across something better.  That is the pattern of life.  If there wasn’t change and everything stayed the same, no one would ever learn anything.  We wouldn’t be wise.  We would just keep making the same mistakes over and over again because we wouldn’t know any different.

          Change is hard.  But no one said life was going to be easy.  The things we experience daily can change our lives for better or for worse, but with every change comes a reason and a lesson for it that will, in the end, make you a wiser person if you choose to learn from it.
