No one likes change. But we can learn to get better at it.
Very good post. As you wrote: lean in. Experience the terror of change. (However, you tease us...)
Im going through a break up and facing moving out of a home that I loved in the coming days. Thank you for writing this.
Spot on! I can relate to all that you write. It really resonate. Thanks for this delightful spin on an uncomfortable yet universal issue that touches everyone.
Your topic is too broad. The word 'change' too ambiguous. Seriously... "Firstly, I’ve never heard anyone say, “Oh, I LOVE change!” If that is so, you're running with the wrong crowd.
Learning (for most) is change. Getting married is change. Having a child is change. Adding more exercise is change. Getting your vegetable garden in is change, for Pete's sake! You've dismissed positive change. Do you think change is only negative?
Change Is growth. I love change.
Wow, thank you for this. Moving is hard. Just lean in. I love that!
This one is full of wisdom.
Love your reflection on this, Jan. After 14 (I think?) moves at this stage I gasped a bit the other day as I realized I could feel the expansion of another move coming. (this could be years from now, but the thought of it on the horizon...) "Oh man, again?", I thought. I've used the words change and transition somewhat interchangeably. Is there a better separation for those changes that are positively chosen, and those others that feel "negative" but necessary vs negative and forced-upon....hmm.. thank you for these musings!
