Some people resist change because it is scary to them. The unknown is uncomfortable and we all like to be in control. We get used to our routine and when it changes we seem to fight against it. Sometimes change is good because it gets us out of our comfort zone and we learn to trust God.
Change is hard because it forces us out of our comfort zone. I think it's even more difficult during the holidays because there is also a level of stress that comes with holiday expectations. The great thing is that once we come through on the other side, we can often look back and know that the Lord meant the change to help us become the very best we can be.
Change can be difficult, even scary. I thnk my response to someone about to make a change would be: embrace the idea and run with it. Allow this change to take you someplace you have not been before. quilting dash lady at Comcast dot net
2. I hope to get back to routine and get everyone in this family back on a "normal" track after two years of upheaval! That is my biggest change hope. :)
2. My most life-altering change was having children. Marriage changed things but children change it more. With children, often comes grandchildren. Having children is both a blessing and sometimes it may even feel like a curse.
In 2011 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Life altering in that it’s scary to go through and a blessing in that you appreciate every birthday you are given thereafter. I’m a seven year cancer survivor and pray the Lord gives me many more.
4. Change can be very difficult to accept, especially for someone that is set in their ways or likes things "just so". Change can also cause fear because of the "unknown" element that's waiting for you. Thanks for the chance to win a prize.
I think people resist change because they get comfortable w/ the way things are and change is disruptive and can be a little frightening.
My most life altering change was when we moved to S.E. Asia to be full time missionaries.
2.I always say that I am going to lose weight and go on a diet, but it is so hard, this year I am going to eat smaller servings.
