When we exist in the way we have been and do not try to change, it tells us something. For instance, if we were an unbeliever in God and became a believer we could be seen as making a positive change —perhaps. If we are the opposite in nature and become an unbeliever, then some would say we are making a negative change. Just a thought…. I still maintain that making ANY change can be life changing itself and it is up to us, individually, to decide if it is good or bad..
Changing Ways 2016-22
I have been the way I am for so long now,
Is it possible to change the way I act?
We all have life’s experiences in our head
Running in our mind like an old VCR.
Cutting the tape to insert a new way,
Is difficult to contemplate.
A new way of doing things, so much different,
When being used to repetition and habit.
Teaching an old dog new tricks is easier,
He doesn’t have a mind with great thought.
Saying “No” or agreeing with “Yes” to new ways,
Is something to get used to I’m sure.
Accepting the changes is the challenge,
And I’m not used to saying “I can’t”…..

some 29 years ago, I went into rehab and found myself making MAJOR changes in my life—better for me, better for my family. But it was by no means an easy change in my life, because it affected so many facets that I had never considered before. And, if you can believe it now, I was quite quiet back then—–I got walked on a lot, let others tell me what to do and thought I was living the good life!! God got me thru so many crazy times—-sure saved my butt, more than once! I was church organist before and after—-when Pastor asked what I wanted him to tell congregation about where I was, I told him to tell them the truth—–they had seen me under the influence enough times!! Change is difficult, even when done for the right reason.
Thank you for the insight and thoughts. Yes, change is not always easy, and in fact very difficult at times but if we learn from thle change, it makes it worthwhile in most cases.
