On Fearing Change

Maya Angelou

Change is scary!

Oh, if you were looking for a newsflash, I apologize. :) That statement isn’t news to anyone, but what I do think is somewhat newsworthy is the brain’s tendency to get comfortable with the familiar. It happens so quietly that sometimes we don’t even realize that we are making that judgment. In the quest for better health, better relationships and better living I think it is important to make the distinction between what is familiar and what is actually productive.

I heard someone say the other day that people rarely change when things are going right, but instead when things are going wrong. If we know this to be true then unhappiness is not a crisis, but rather an opportunity. I like that little mind trick. Unhappiness can be a speed bump or a springboard. The key is to choose which one you want it to be.
