To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.- Winston Churchill
I don’t think anyone can be perfect this side of heaven, but we can improve ourselves. Change can be a scary thing in some cases. We get used to the way things are and we don’t want them to change. We’re comfortable; things are familiar and easy. For instance, I have been using the leaf blower in the fall for years to blow the millions of leaves off the front yard. This year my husband brought it to my attention that because of the fence that we put up I would have to blow the leaves in a different direction. It took me a few minutes to process the idea of doing something differently. Change! It was different but perfectly acceptable. It’s only leaves after all. 🙂 But change can be exciting and something to look forward to also. Let’s continue with my leaf analogy. Autumn is an exciting time of year. Things change in a BIG way. All the green leaves disappear and are replaced by brilliant reds, oranges, yellow, and browns (and then they fall off the trees and I have to blow them off the yard). The weather starts to get cooler; the days get shorter; and soon everything looks different than it did in the summer. But it isn’t bad; it’s just different. And I don’t think we would enjoy the outdoors as much if it just stayed the same all the time.
So don’t be afraid of change. Change can be good. And we should all be trying to change ourselves in a positive way everyday.
