Change is…

seedChange is tough. Change is uncomfortable. Change is inevitable.

A seed is  comfortable when it’s just a seed. What is the potential for that seed? To be planted in a beautiful garden and grown to bare fruit? To be forgotten in the back of the pantry and dry-up like a raisin in the sun?

The seed is stuck, so it must change. Fortunate for humans, unlike the seed, we can choose the path of change.

If the seed is left to rely on it’s comfortability, it will only last for a while. Sitting there being content as a seed, using up all it’s energy, then poof…it is all dried up!

If the seed tries something uncomfortable, starts sprouting and rooting into soil, it becomes something altogether different. Beautiful. But different.

If we choose the path of least resistance, we will be comfortable, but only for a while. May be a short while, or may be a long while. Nonetheless, just a while.

If we choose the path of the unknown, step out of our comfort zones, make the most of every moment, stretch our potentiality, we might just find something different, yet altogether beautiful.

Change is change.

    Change is tough. I love this line: “To be forgotten in the back of the pantry and dry-up like a raisin in the sun?” Great analogy you made here 🙂

  2. Beautiful words and a great analogy.

  3. This is a perspective to remember. So often I get lost in the most difficult parts of change. Your words will help me!

  4. I like the idea that taking risks allows us to grow and eventually take root.

  5. I couldn’t agree more. This is a great analogy and one that I’ll remember as I walk the path to retirement and new adventures.

  6. A seed is comfortable when its just a seed. Great line there. As someone who has the first instinct to fight change of any kind, this is very timely. 🙂

  7. Change – why is it so feared? I like this slice – it makes it more acceptable for change – more natural – to occur.
