C.H.A.N.G.E in everything

C.H.A.N.G.E … a six letter word that intimidates us and shakes us to the core. A word that takes you down a dark, bumpy road that will either give you the time of your life or just kill you. A word that makes you want to stop right where you are; look around you and absorb your surroundings, and weigh your options to figure out what exactly you want changed or where else you’d rather be than where you are today.

C.H.A.N.G.E is not always a choice, sometimes it’s a result of a path you’ve chosen to take, a consequence that is simply inevitable, and a result that will either make you or break you. Sometimes it’s for the best, sometimes it takes you places you’ve never imagined being, sometimes it completes those gaps in your soul that you’ve waited to fill for so long, and sometimes it makes you glad you’ve come across it.

But change isn’t always great. Not everything that’s new and shiny is better than what you already had. Take for example shoes. We all love to treat ourselves to a new pair of stilettos, the ones calling us from window displays each morning on our way to work, beautifully wrapped in big white boxes and red ribbons, making you feel sexy just by looking at them, and as soon as you get the chance you put them right on and show them off to your friends. But when you’re being you, when no one else is around, and when it’s just between you and your feet, you bring out the old Chuck Taylors that are beautifully worn out and covered in mud. You slip them right on and feel like a rock star even though there’s at least one hole on each pair. You appreciate their dirtiness, and you’re not ashamed of them because only they can capture the Real you.

C.H.A.N.G.E is important, it’s vital, and necessary to help you grow or evolve one way or another, but that doesn’t mean out with the old. You can still keep that old part of you in your heart, you can still carry the memories around wherever life takes you, you can still remember that the past was part of whom and where you are today, and if you don’t like where C.H.A.N.G.E has gotten you, you can go back to where you first were even if it’s just for a day. But the thing about C.H.A.N.G.E is whether you A.C.C.E.P.T it or R.E.J.E.C.Tit, it’ll lead you to exactly where you’re supposed to be … your F.U.T.U.R.E!
