the one where i write about change

writing for five minutes on opportunity

change is not lurking around a corner
nor hiding in wait far down the road
she is here
again.
and
i have the opportunity
to bless or curse
i'm leaving for school in seven minutes
i will pack boxes
i will load carts
i will study new curriculum
i will learn a new teammate
i will place my name plate on a new door
and this is overwhelming
and i want to complain
but the word
and this is terrifying
and i want to whine
but the word
let everything you say be
good
and
helpful,
so that your words will be an
encouragement
to those who hear them
and here knocks
opportunity

how do you react to change?

  1. ... change happens and we usually have no control. transitions are all about how we walk through that unsettled time.

    may yours be sweet!

  4. I find change, even good change, difficult at times. It's so easy to get comfortable with the status quo!

  8. I've always said I've hated change. It throws me into a realm where my routine changes but I know it's inevitable and I always adapt to the new things that come about. Thanks for sharing and prayers are with you during your new opportunity.
