I like change...when it's my choice.
But when change comes that I didn't ask for, didn't look for and do not want...well, the results aren't always pretty.
It's my control factor. I like to be in control. And change sometimes means I can't plan for every detail, every eventuality and I don't know how to operate in uncertainty.
And that needs to change.
I've thought recently how the desire for control indicates a lack of trust. And I was thinking of children. How they are more accepting of change, they tend to go with the flow much easier than adults. Perhaps it's because they don't live with a set of expectations (yet).
And perhaps that's what I love about the baby stage so much. The only thing a baby wants changed is its diaper. Other than that it's content to lay in the arms of those who would keep it safe.
Rambling thoughts will stop here. How I'd love to flesh this idea out more, but the clock says stop. Sigh.
