Change

Written June of last year.

Don’t hold on to anything that won’t hold on to you

Learn to let go of those things you “can’t stand to lose”

Often, change has the worst sense of timing

But time will always change

It will push and pull and twist in your gut

Press and stretch and strain

It enters without permission

Change is a forceful opponent of all that remains

The most accurate evidence that we are maturing

Is in our growing pains

Change resonates in the marrow of our bones

It pulsates through our veins

If ever you get too comfortable or lose sight of important things

It won’t be long before you’ll hear a whisper softly urging, “Change.”
