This morning I was running errands and decided to swing into my local coffee shop for a Highlander Grogg. This can caught my eye. It took me a nano second to get it. Then I really liked it. I quickly snapped a picture while the window girl was getting my coffee. I didn’t want her to think I was a demented stalker trying to get a photo of her.
The saying reminded me a bit of yoga. At the beginning of every class, the instructor says “Whatever is on your mind this morning, leave it on the mat. Lay it down and take this hour to focus on your breathing. Rest your mind and strengthen your body for this one little chunk of time.” To which I say to myself “Yes, please.”
Why do we fear change? I’ve been addressing this a bit in my recent blogs. I ran across a few quotes about change and want to share them.
You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending ~ C.S. Lewis
Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change ~ Stephen Hawking
The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails ~ William Arthur Ward
There is nothing so stable as change ~ Bob Dylan
I so love that last one. Change is indeed a sign of stability. And the opposite of that, no change ever, is definitely an indication of shaky instability. It’s an irony, of course, but many truths are.
So do you want to complain about the wind, expect it to change, or adjust the sails?
Yes, me too. I want to adjust the sails and leave my fear of change in the tip jar.
