Who moved my cheese?


Source

First of all, let me just say that I hate cheese.  I cannot stand the smell of it, the texture, or the taste.  I will pull all the cheese off my pizza before eating it!  People always tell me it's un-American to hate cheese, but I think they can bite me are entitled to their opinion.

Anyway, this post is not actually about cheese.  It's about change. Recently, Jordy Liz graciously allowed me to guest post on her blog on the topic of embracing change.  I wrote about learning to let go of the perfectly clean house and always being 'put-together'. You can read the guest post here.

But that topic got me thinking about change in general.  Why don't people like it?  Are we as humans so entrenched in our routines?  Or is it a control issue?  Maybe fear of the unknown?

I personally don't have a problem with change.  I think it's healthy and I think we need to be able to adapt and be flexible and try new things.  Color outside the lines, and all that jazz.

What's the biggest change that's happened to you so far?  How have you handled change in your life?

  1. It's ok, we can still be friends even if you don't like cheese ;P

    I've got some crazy life changes going on right now, but I'll update when Hubs and I can talk about them (at least they're good for the most part!)

  2. Change is hard for me. I usually enjoy change in little things that can be monotonous. However, i just moved to Florida from utah. I was born and raised in utah and have never left. I am really missing it lately. Big change can be a really hard thing.

  3. I will have to see if i can get past your cheese hating ;) Of course I hate hot dogs with a passion and I have been called unAmerican more times then I can count because of it.

    I go through phases, sometimes I hate change, but then sometimes I love it. I know its necessary and beneficial at times

  4. Oh how I need to let go of the "perfectly clean house" problem... I don't adjust well to change at all. I need to learn that's for sure! My baby just started walking so I'm trying to get around the change of how big he is getting ALREADY!

  5. I think accepting who I am and who I feel like I'm meant to become has been my biggest change and achievement yet. Years ago, I thought it would be impossible to do that. Ever since I changed in that area, I embrace change and love what it can do for people.

  6. I think change is hard for most people. We are, by nature, creatures of habit, you know?

    I'd say my biggest change the past few years has been becoming a wife and Mom. :)

    Found you through the VA bloggers being shared on twitter!

    I live in this beautiful state, too!

  7. We used that book in our sorority leadership team! It really makes a powerful statement, and is a good reminder that sometimes, change is very necessary, and the people who can handle it are the ones that are prepared for it.

  8. I remember reading that book years ago for work and it did have a lot of great points but I think most people take time to adjust to changes in their life. Some better than others.
