Change Your Approach

Change Ain’t Easy

The weather is changing! I love that it changes. I don’t always love what it changes to, but even those parts I don’t like as much eventually change.

Here’s my question to myself: I enjoy when the weather changes. Why do I resist other changes in my life? Other changes are happening all the time. Some are easy & some other are not so much so. I know part of my resistance is because I get into habits, & once a habit gets entrenched it is harder to shift.

Right now, one of my personal issues, is my resistance to technology. Learning new apps & software are making me dig my heals in & say “I don’t have time for that!” I know that is just an excuse. I know there is a learning curve on anything, & just starting out at something means I probably don’t know what I am doing. I also know that I’ll get better at it as I go along.

You’d think that learning new things would get easier as we age since we’ve done it so many times. But we also have more years of habits to shift. They do say that learning new things helps our brains stay young.

Life is good – Life is constantly changing, even when I am resistant!
Thank you God!
