i wrote a song… in my mind

change: good or bad?

with 5 comments


how do you feel about it?  and i don’t mean chang|e change, i mean something different change.  me?  i have mixed feelings.  every morning, i have a routine.  i get up a little earlier, brush my teeth, read my Bible, go work out for a little while, check my email and read the news online, shower, eat a little something and go to class.  if anything changes in this routine, my morning is doomed.  i’ll arrive late, or not be able to eat breakfast or smell really bad or something.  in that sense, i love consistency.  it gets me amped.

however, i feel like my purpose in life (as i feel God has revealed to me) is to effect change in peoples’ lives including my own.  meaning: i can’t let myself or other people get comfortable, change is needed so that we keep pushing ahead and remember where we’ve come from.

coming from an artistic standpoint, change is the motivation and drive for my creativity.  i want to do things outside of the mould.  that’s right, i spelled it with a ‘u’.  i’m that rebellious.  change is life.  change is beautiful.  change is… my last name + first initial no matter how much my sister wants to take credit for “inventing” it.  i live for it.  i’m not saying that all change is good and whatever you’ve been doing is wrong and you have to do something different.  but the change has to be a constructive kind of change. a change of perspective, a change of heart, a change of challenge.

and i know i said i have mixed feelings towards change earlier in the entry and now it sounds as if i’m all about change.  i think structure is wonderful, it keeps us in check and organized.  but its when structure binds us to complacency and apathy that i think change is needed.

change.  what do you guys think?

  1. sometimes you need to be thrown a little bit of change… it’s like a catalyst to reboost and bring life and enjoyment back again… it’s good to step away from things sometimes and be able to come back to it with new perspective. 🙂

  2. We gotta make a change…
    It’s time for us as a people to start makin’ some changes.
    Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live
    and let’s change the way we treat each other.
    You see the old way wasn’t working so it’s on us to do
    what we gotta do, to survive.

  3. Very thoughtful post. Change is a good thing but there is also something to be said about consistency. I think the heart of the matter lies with the direction of the change. Where are you headed with this change? Why are you changing? Is it to be more like something or someone? or is it aimless, just to spice things up for a while? I would say change with a theme is a good thing.

  5. i agree enoch! when i was in school, i had a routine down… and if i woke up a minute later, my morning routine was off kilter and that was not good. traffic also messes up my routine sometimes…

    but then.. some changes are good and necessary- i.e. moving to Virginia, getting married, etc. AND we just found our new place!! So we’ll be moving into our new home next weekend. i’m so excited about that change. get to set up my new home with my new husband. that change is nice. and necessary. 😉
