Change is in the air, I can feel it and you can too.

Change is inevitable.

Think of the hundreds, thousands, even millions of changes that you've gone through, the whole growing up process, the cells replicating, sloughing off, and being replaced again.  You learned to roll over, scoot, crawl, walk, a million motor skills you honed in the first 12 years of your life.

You changed dramatically.  We all changed for the better, heck yes, who wants to crawl, or be pushed around in a stroller the rest of your life (okay, except at theme parks and the like).


We progressed through preschool (some of us, depending on age), kindergarten, elementary, middle, high schools and some of us even beyond into college, jobs, skills for life and still learning.  Aren't we?


I know I am.  So when someone says people don't change, it is a misnomer and a misrepresentation in general.  Addictive behaviors can be overcome and triumphed over.  Some people are able to do that.


Each day is a progress, an advancement, your currently knowledge can fill volumes, and yet what we don't know can fill even more volumes.


One thing we may be prone to do, is not accept the changes others go through.  Not allowing people to change does not allow acceptance.  You want them to allow and accept you as you change.


Some habits die hard, and show their ugly heads from time to time.  For the most part you've kept them under control.


Progress is accepting and allowing others to change with us.  The closest of relationships allow that flow, that adaptability, that acceptance and that freedom.


Feel free to change.
