i am an organized person. tediously so, in some areas. so i like things a particular way, and it pains me when they get moved or changed.
yeah...it gets tricky when i let that mentality spill to all parts of my life.
cause the thing is...there are other people in the world i live in. and they don't happen to be robots. they are making choices, and they are in flux.
also, this world changes. the colors outside are a vivid reminder of that.
so i have really grown to see that, though i love order, i actually live amidst chaos. no control.
my options are to go insane or learn to cope. but how do i, a lover of order and organization, embrace the changes?
a friend of mine commented on a throwback thursday picture, 'oh, to be young again!'
no, thank you.
i do not want to be young again.
i want to continue to grow and mature and see what's next...
that's how i know i can embrace and even like change. because i am not what i once was (THANK YOU, JESUS!), and i have not yet become who i will be. change is glorious! change is refining! change is redeeming!
this world is not my home. so i am not clinging to what i have here. i am not wishing for things to stay just as they are. i am anticipating something much greater. and i hope it comes soon.
