Change Is Happening-Are We Ready ?

Change is always hard to accept, not because it isn't a good thing, but instead because it isn't an easy thing.

We are creatures of habit, we like knowing just how our daily lives will play from one day to the next. Never mind that change may well be a blessing in many ways. It's simply too much trouble and the effort will take us out off our planned course.

Well, guess what? Change is happening. We will be a part of it regardless what our wishes are.

We, as a nation of people have been very comfortable with letting it all just happen, thinking that somewhere, someone, has all the answers and with the waving of a hand it will all be fixed. Not this time.....

We must seriously start on a journey of reworking how, when, why, and where we conduct our daily lives. From food to water to air , all these things dictate the quality of life we have and will pass on to our children.

What are you doing to make a footprint that will lead to change?

Do share with me.

Hello Bea!

You are so right, change is happening? Now is the perfect time to evaluate how we are living and what we intend to leave for our children to live in.

I am forever the glass half full kind of girl.

For me change is opportunity.

When things stay the same, they...stay the same...slip into a rut...become thoughtless. Change brings about new opportunities. Opportunities to create the lives we really want to be living, to live thoughtfully and with more intention, to recreate ourselves and our environments.

That is exciting! Bring on the change. I am always open for better things.

I can't remember the name of the movie, but there is one where a young man goes to Pleasentville through a TV. Pleasantville is an old black and white TV show. Everything is the same routine, everyday, no thinking, no creativity, everything is "pleasant".

Then the characters visiting the black and white show, start changing things, breaking the routine. Color starts to show up. People start thinking.

Town's people are scared of change. Want to put a stop to change which is adding color and choices to life.

In the end, color and change win, for the better, even if it wasn't comfortable.

We do get stuck in routine's, ruts, but if we don't pay attention to what is going on the world around us, how interconnected everything is, we will be in deep trouble.

I was talking to a friend today, and her husband is car pooling most of the way to work and riding his bike rest of the way. Getting exercise, saving gas.

Just a small thing, but if each of us did a small thing, think of the impact. Then is each of us, did a bigger thing how much better.

I say that change is the one thing that you can count on. And that's good.

I am also out of my car a lot and riding my bike.

We need to get more people growing their own food and learning how to cook.

Let's hear it for change.
