embrace change

“If you’re like me, you won’t want to change. Even if things aren’t wonderful, but are familiar, I would rather stay with what I know. Why meddle with something for which there is a Latin, and therefore authoritative, term: the status quo. I studied dead languages at school – no chance of sudden changes in grammar or vocabulary there. So I’m aware status quo has roots in the longer phrase “in statu quo res erant ante bellum” – the state in which things were before the war. I feel the implication is that without the status quo there will be chaos. There will be war.”

My daily thought for the day that popped up on screen entreated me to recognise change is not an action but a process. To hang on when it seems easier to stay put… Let’s not argue about the mixed metaphor. So I returned to a previous post on change to see if looking at it again renewed enthusiasm or invoked despair. Am I in a different place, does it matter, is happiness closer or an illusion, are these questions or random thoughts. Feel unsettled as will soon be end of a year of posts – journey end or new beginning. Time to choose. Time to embrace change.

Have a good day
