change I have a book in my Library that is titled ‘When everything changes, change everything.’ As I read the book, I am not sure that I agreed with its premise. However it definitely made me think seriously about how I respond to change and its impact on my life.

I am hopeless with change.

Even when my husband shifts something around in our house, it completely undoes me.

I think it is a combination of many things. I find comfort and then I camp there.

Feeling comfortable is one of the greatest inhibitors of change.

Yet in my life, I desire to live a life that contributes and thrives and that means living and loving discomfort.

How about you?

Do you want to change the world?

Then it begins with changing you?

Now that is uncomfortable.

All my love
