Change Comes in Many Flavors

So much of my life has been spent moving toward something…moving toward a desired place, a destination…another place, another job, another….something.  There I was in constant “seek-mode”.  Always running and moving toward…something.   I enjoyed where I was for a while…but then I wanted change.  Unlike most people, it seemed my brain was programmed for change, instead of loving routine, I thrived on “new”…or at least changing and shifting situations.  I didn’t mind living in the same place and having a consistent group of friends…but I did need change in some part of my life.

So, was I running toward something or away from something?

And while contemplating the answer to this question, I realized that I am now tired of searching and running and going, going, going. As I’ve been living this gypsy life for the past 6 years, I’ve given away so much. My attitude while I moved around, here and there was …if it doesn’t fit in my car (a 4-door sedan) then it’s too much!  So I’ve given away couches and beds and small appliances.  I just released them to others.  Happy in the knowledge that if/when I needed those things, they would show up in another form…or the money to buy them would be available.  And yes, this has always been true.  For all that I have materially purged, I have never regretted.  Never.  However, I think I am at a point…where I might be ready to STOP giving everything away. Not just the material objects, but the friendships and the roots and everything else that comes with being a part of a community.

It’s an interesting feeling to be shifting again. And I do recognize that I am trading one type of change for another. After all,  staying put for a while and making a home will certainly be a change! Each of us has periods of hibernation, nesting, rebirth/renewal, retreat, metamorphosis, emergence and reconnection.

Humans are fascinating creatures! We could do something literally FOR YEARS, happy or asleep in the habit and then one day or over a short period, something just clicks: CHANGE!!! You know what I’m talking about. It’s like we’ve been hit on the head:  “I want change”,  “I’m ready to move on”,  “I want to eat a different kind of sandwich for lunch today”.

As happy as the brain is with us following a pattern or routine, eventually, after a while…it wants some sort of variety.  Isn’t that amazing? We are pre-wired, most of us…for growth, for expansion, for change.  Perhaps this is what keeps life so interesting! I can’t wait to see what’s around the corner!
