Adaptability, Not Intelligence, Not Strength

If adaptability supersedes intelligence and strength, then change is to be embraced. So, change is good. So, change is good? Hum,  I only changed one thing in that sentence - the end point.  And my, oh my what an impact of a change that made.  With a period change is seen as good. We even make a celebration to announce some of these changes.  Perhaps it's the birth of a child, a graduation of schooling or maybe a new place to live, some fresh food or some cut flowers for the table.  My Dad said that change was one of the two things you could always count on.  The other was death.  And death really is just change as well.  But that is one of the hard changes.  Even when the logic in your brain can remind you that it is inevitably a change we all must experience. Sometimes we struggle with the day to day acceptance of another's death until we do finally accept and the suffering ends.  It doesn't mean we don't miss the person, it only means that we embrace the changing days of life.  So life is really changing all the time.  I like learning so I embrace change with as much grace as I can.  And no, grace is not my forte, but I try.  I know that there is a zone of discomfort when you are learning.  It's proven in research.  So if you are to grow and change you will get uncomfortable.  Growth is outside of the comfort zone.  You can't skip over this part.  You can complain about it, but it only slows the process.  You want to get through it?  Then get to it!  It takes courage to make some changes. Choose the changes that your heart "tells" you to and release the changes that happen out of no control of your own.  And relax into this mysterious journey that we call life.
