Five Minute Friday: Change

The rules: Write for five minutes. No editing, revising, or over thinking. Just write.

Today’s Topic: Change


We all want things to get better, to be better to live better, everything must be better, but we don’t like Change AT.ALL!  It’s more that we’re reluctant to change because we fear the unfamiliar. We know how things are working right now, so let’s not rock the boat. Change also means learning something new or forming a new habit. No, thank you! I’m not signing up for that!

How do things get better if there’s no change? It’s simple. They don’t. Isn’t there a cliche or quote or something that someone said once, and it’s been repeated a bazillion times? It goes something like, ‘You can’t expect to get the same results if you always do the same thing.’ I’d research it, but this is a 5 minute post 🙂

So we’ve got to get over it and accept that unless we’re complacent with how things are now, then things are going to have to change. Complacency isn’t always bad, of course. If you’re happy and you know it (clap your hands), then maybe change isn’t necessary. However, if you’re only complacent because of fear, then you’ve got to step out of your shell and go for it! Here’s one quote I’ll look up, only because I know exactly where to find it quickly:

“Do one thing every day that scares you.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt

    • I also like the idea of doing one thing every day that scares me, because I feel like I could really be LIVING life and learning from those experiences.

      Thank you for stopping by 🙂
