Change is Hard, I Should Know

I have been sitting in front of my computer thinking about what to write. I can’t come up with a lot…I guess when you write every day, you gotta have a list of things to refer to (that’s actually a good idea). So apologize in advance if this isn’t very good.

I guess a cool fact is that typically when I blog I’m watching Law and Order: Criminal Intent on Netflix. I guess that can explain why some of my sentences may not make sense. I love this show mostly because of the detectives. The guy was one of the soldiers in Full Metal Jacket and he did an amazing job in that movie and he is pretty much the reason why I watch the show.

I have always been impressed with the Law and Order series. Yes, they are fiction and it is not the way real policeman/detectives work, but that is not what they are going for. They are going for entertainment, I’m being entertained, so I’m satisfied. However the other series change a lot and sometimes when they do I don’t like it. For example, Law and Order: Special Victim’s Unit, I love both detectives on the show. I also loved the lawyer that was on the show, once she was replaced, the woman who took over was good as well, so I was satisfied with that change. However this season, one detective has left the show and the lawyer has left. I gave the show a few chances, but I can’t get passed the changes so I have stopped watching it.

I guess that is a problem for me in both TV and real life: change. When I was in school, we took a test called the Strength Test, you see what your top five strengths are, one of mine was adaptability-the ability to adapt to a situation quickly. As time has gone on, I have come to realize that even though I can adapt to a situation quickly, it doesn’t mean that I will not become overwhelmed later on. This has happened to me multiple times.

I think everyone goes through something like this. This post may remind you of the Everything is Going to be Ok post. However one thing that is different from that post is that in this one I have finally realized that instead of being somewhat sad about things that are changing, I need to embrace them. I need to realize that this change may be something God has planned for me, I need to be patient and let the road take me where it leads. Even if it is down a bad path, I have my family and friends by my side so nothing will be that bad.

In the words of one of my favorite bands, She and Him:

“…But I can try, I can try to toughen up…Change is Hard, I should know…”
