Pocket Full Of Change

If I had a handful of change for every time I have talked on this blog in the last few months about "Change", I would... have a lot of damn change.

"Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the FEARFUL it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things BETTER." ~King Whitney Jr.

Please stand by for a blog post that won't be perfectly written, just as my life is not perfectly written, and just like anything about life on this Earth is not perfectly written. However, I am of the opinion that things which are not always perfectly written, end up in most cases a much better read anyway!

OK to start, I am not happy with myself for neglecting my writing, blogging. I've always said I enjoy writing immensely, so to neglect it is to neglect an important part of myself. If anyone is reading this, it means you haven't given up on me, which is good because I don't give up on my loved ones, and most of you who put up with me are loved ones, and damn lucky ones at that! :)

So life has thrown out a few curve-balls, fast-balls and even screwballs along with a good many uppercuts and jabs. I'm getting pretty agile in my old age honestly. Did I expect any less? In all honesty, I must say at an early age, YES because I was led to believe as a child how great life was going to be as an adult. I believed that, as I trusted my parents with my life, but my inner child must have known better because I also clung to her, as she clung on to me for dear life.

That's o.k., we help one another through these changes, and when something feels a little too tough to take, she and I pop popcorn and lock ourselves in our room and watch old Disney Movies. It works.

My point, however idiotic it may seem to those of you reading this is Change is a part of life. Now depending on whether we feel 'short changed', or given back TOO MUCH Change is the deciding factor between a spending spree or opening up a 'Can of Whoop Ass', but it all balances out somehow, so when Life dishes out these butt-loads of change go on a Spending Spree!!!

"Die when I may, I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow." ~Abraham Lincoln

Change is definitely part of life. We can't stop it even if we try. Only thing we can do is make it work for us the best we can.

Fuck, I ain't never tried to write a perfect post.

Jay said it true.

"Only thing we can do is make it work for us the best we can."

I'm doing okay and I hope that you are also.

Ahhh, AJ... how I have missed reading your writings. It feels good to be back. :)

This post is pretty uplifting, whether that's what you intended or otherwise. I think your analogy of "go on a spending spree!" will stay with me when I feel I have too much change.
