10 Things People May Do When There is Change

Musings 11/14/2016

 

Six days ago people couldn't wait for 11/8 to be over. No! This is not a post about the election but rather an observation about change and the conflicts that it causes people. I will illustrate my points through recent photos taken on 11/13/16 and pondering issues yesterday. If there's one thing I learned in my freshman year of High School is "today is tomorrow's yesterday!" 

 

 true colors In the midst of change, people show their true colors.

 

Past People have a tendency to hang on to the past. 

 

Read May read but not know how to research accurately. 

 

Bug May want those who disagree to just bug off!

 

Dragonfly Won't accept when one door closes & another opens

May feel stuck between conflicting lifestyles.

 

May find strength in wishing  something else for something else 

 

Emotional thoughts keep   drifting  drifting further away

 

Focusing on the issue re-    focus mains BOLD, front & center

 

Letting go is hard when      butterfly  moving on is inevitable

 

"Anger can revert to joy, wrath can revert to delight, but a nation destroyed cannot be restored to existence, and the dead cannot be restored to life." --- Author unknown.  

 

I have thought a lot about the quote above and wondered, what do we gain if we go against the grain? Staying true to oneself, being open-minded, giving people a chance, admitting that not all people are perfect or that everyone will agree with you - these are life lessons that can make us all stronger or weaker. The choice is ours and the path we choose is something we all must do. But if there's one thing I learned through my own life experiences is you don't have to have an endorsement to be right or wrong. The world doesn't stop just because of one's personal belief. Conflicting minds must strike a balance and not waste time trying to undo the past. Moving on is the way of life. To my knowledge, no human being ever conquered all problems. Skillfully, we can and should strike a balance - not strike out against one another.

Great post Patricia!  Where would we be without change?  Change keeps us on our toes and makes life more interesting...

Embrace it!

I hope you are doing well in Dallas, Texas!

Love your photos and how you use them to make your points, nice post. Having moved continents, a long time ago, and across town, I know change is hard, but it is also exciting and how you approach it can really help you through it. We always expressed to our sons when we were moving that it was an adventure, we weren't quite sure how it might turn out but we were all in the boat together. We encountered lots of storms, lost rigging and sails, but looking back from where we are now, I would regret staying moored in the harbor and not putting to sea.

Nick & Trudy Vandekar - starting with line two of your comments above, I felt like I was reading a good book that I didn't want to put down. Your children were very lucky to have you as parents. With you at the stern, controlling the tiller you managed to live a series of adventures! Oh, how I would have loved to be a part of your family if I were a child in your kid's shoes. 

Thank you for reading my blog post and sharing your life story. I could listen to you for hours without getting bored. Oh, what a great life you live!

Nick & Trudy Vandekar - Kids have immature brains and with time they grow into their brain and see things differently. It may take awhile but it does change them for the better. I have two myself and they didn't always agree with me. It's those "stormy times" of our life we grow the most and like a child in the womb, it's uncomfortable and they need all the help and love we can give, even when they are crying, kicking and screaming. Love them anyway... kids are worth it. After the storm, the sun comes out or perhaps a rainbow... brightness follows (but parents may not be there when they witness such an awakening).

Patricia, there's one thing that's guaranteed throughout life and that's change. I think we need to just embrace it and move forward with our lives. Change can be hard but, often times it's needed and for the best. So glad this is featured!

Great post.  I say we are done with the election and people need to focus their attention to other pressing matters.  The protest and violence will not help anyone and it certainly will NOT change the outcome.  NEXT!!!!

I have a sneaky habit when I sense change on the horizon.  I beat the pros and cons out of both sides of what change will bring.  I've usually come to terms with it before it happens.

Oh Patricia ... you did it again.  I just love this. 

So much of this really strikes me. 

May read but not know how to research accurately is real fitting for so many. 

Congratulations on the well deserved Feature!

Awesome post! I so agree with you and your point of view.  I am not a volatile, dramatic person and shy away from public sentiments when it comes to that stuff, especially rants.  Acceptance and moving forward are the order of the day!

Congratulations on your feature recognition. Some of us in the seniors category are too slow in making needed changes.

Really great feature! I too have been disappointed in many reactions to change. If we don't like the outcome of what has happened, it's up to us to make another change. It just means some will want it bad enough to do their part and others will sit back on their laurels, do nothing then complain.
