Change is something we all do from the time we are born until the day we die. (I have no idea what happens then, I believe that will be a positive, beautiful change.) From the first time, our subconscious hears someone say, "The baby needs changing", we start our journey of lifelong changes.
It seems to me that most of our early changes come very gradual, we don’t even think about them. We grow and get older, we start school, and we learn new things and skills. Sometimes our family changes, a new baby, or divorce, maybe we move to a different home. Sometime in our early teens, we discover the opposite sex…oh, about then our bodies change. Girls and boys start looking different from one another and we like those changes.
We become adults, have jobs, sometimes marry, and sometimes have kids. Life keeps shifting from one stage in life to another. We change in positive, normal traditional ways. Sadly, we have are asked also to adjust to circumstances beyond our control.
I am going through one of those “circumstances beyond my control” now. I don’t like it one little bit. I am tired of having to make attitude adjustments; I have an attitude, OK World? I am exhausted from dealing with too many changes. Whew, that little venting was helpful and I feel so much better.
I know it is time to deal with some health issues and to accept the facts. I am no longer the perky little one. Crying over weight gain and limited movement is not helping. So I am making some small changes to cope better. I am hoping the doctors will find something to help my poor old body get through the next stage of my life. I even a hoping that the new treatment will ease my mental confusion.
Mainly I have confidence I will survive the changes. I have a lot of trust in my loving Bruce, family, friends, and the Good Lord. Also, I have faith in myself to CHANGE and repeat the serenity prayer over and over.
