Changing diapers is no fun by my estimation nor would I think many others are thrilled with the prospect of doing the chore. Someone's got to do it. I think I got pretty good at changing diapers during my parenting years, but I'd prefer not to do anymore diaper changing in my life. In the case of diapers, change, though not a pleasant task, is a necessity.
Not all change is a necessity, but often it is inevitable. Change might not be pleasant for everyone and can even be burdensome. Some may benefit from change while others pay for it. Time can change things as can circumstances. While some change might be barely discernible, other change can be traumatic and life-changing.
New life situations such as marriage, children, or death of someone who affects us greatly can lead us to become very different people than we formerly were. We can welcome change as much as we can fear it. However we think of change, it is something that can happen and will happen.
This being a presidential election year in the United States we are hearing a lot about the promise of change as well as the threat of change. There are some who try to ignore the politics that are all around us while others are following closely. Whether you embrace the goings on in the political news or try to escape the election chatter, one fact is inescapable: The coming change is going to affect you and possibly do so in a big way.
Change is continually happening. We can only hope--and pray--that the coming change will be for the better.
Do you adapt to change easily? Do you like change when it alters your way of living? What are some changes that you hope to see as a result of the next presidential election?
This post provides a clue to my next song choice in the Battle of the Bands which will be on Monday February 15th. As I mentioned in a previous post, the song I'll be pitting in Battle has something to do with the season--or in other words, specifically February. Can you guess the song?
