How many times have you heard someone say "I hate change" or expressed some form of fear related to an anticipated change?

And then how many times have you heard people complain that they're "stuck in a rut"?

It just seems somehow ironic to me that people hate change, and yet feel stuck.

I suppose there is a desire to do something different, and yet possessing an irrational fear of the unknown.

Somehow reminds me of a quote I heard once - what people don't know, they fear. What they fear, they destroy.

And that is why we destroy everything that remotely reminds us of a change, and then mourn the demise of any glimmer of hope of having a different life.

I realise I am in the minority when I wonder why change is so scary. Honestly, I don't understand the fear of change. I crave change.

But I don't think this love for change is all about an inbuilt DNA to want something more, something different.

To me, it also has something to do with the fact that I know God is looking after me. And that if I am called to do His will, I have to be willing to go wherever he wants me to, knowing that eventually, it will all work out.

I like change when its challenging. When I can envision the promise of something better.

I don't like change when it means losing something already good -- like death of a loved one, or when a good friend decides to leave for Sydney.

But even I don't like the change at first, I get used to it and then I embrace it, because really, its all about perspective and how you choose to look at things, right?
