Our day to day life can seems monotonous, boring, unrewarding, and etc. We sometimes look at our day as just another step towards the mundane. It’s the same thing each day. We can get caught up in this cycle as if we were on this never ending moving sidewalk that circles around to the start each morning. Seeing nothing new or having nothing change. But is that truly how our lives are?
They say the only thing that is constant is change. Even though each day seems like a rerun of the day before there is always differences. Some small, almost unnoticeable. Others can hit you right in the face and send you spinning into a cyclone. Often times those big things are the ones that make us appreciate the moving sidewalk.
We say we want things to change in our lives but when they do we fight against the it with all our might. We are in a comfortable position, although not exciting, we know it well. The small changes in our lives are different, they go unnoticed in the day to day until you start looking back on your life and see how they change everything. Those small things are easier for us to handle. They sneak change in on us with out too much of a fight.
We need these changes in our lives. They keep us progressing forward, searching for the best in ourselves and those around us. Changes make us stronger, they show us what we are made of. Some changes big or small are easier than others. And some days we don’t think we can get through them. But the sun rises the next morning and we get up and move forward.
Life isn’t always sunshine and roses, but we wouldn’t appreciate the sunny days without the clouds. The roses couldn’t grow with the rain. It is okay to let change into our lives. It gives us joy and happiness, sorrow and grief, we cannot have one without the other.
