Change: We all get butterflies every time change is announced, but we soon realize it was important

From my high school to where i am now, i have always not welcomed change at the first sight or hearing. At school, the sisters would order the change of our hostels, at work place, they are always change us from ward A to B, from B to C, and now from Mulago to Kidudu. And even when i first paid for my accommodation, i had to change my landlords now and then. There is one thing that is common every time i am going a change: Anxiety and feeling uncomfortable. Yeah, it is never comfortable to change from your usual room to another, from your usual job to another, from your usual routine to something new, from your daily foods to new diet, from your work place to another place or even a change of your friends or religion. There is always anxiety, feelings of loss, failure, anger and disturbance every time that change is announced..........

Surprisingly, despite all the fear, anger, loss and discomfort i always felt when undergoing change, i have never regretted any change. Whether the change of rooms at school, the change of wards at work place, the change of landlords at my residence, it always turns out better and i end up being grateful to the changes. That is a testimony. At the beginning of every change, i would feel cheated and disturbed, sometimes i would complain and fight back to own my former life, my usual room or work, but when it all failed, i would accept the change with bitterness. However, after two to 3 weeks, i would actually be grateful to God and the people who effected the change.........

So what is the point?
The point is simple: No matter how hard, traumatizing, and very annoying the change you are undergoing seem to be, take it up, soon or later, you will realise that it was for your good. I know this is not easy to believe in especially when the change you are going through is openly painful, but it is true, the change is not there to destroy you but to build you. You could be breaking up with your man, you could be changing your workplace, school or job, you could be experiencing a shift from diet A to diet B, and it all looks so annoying and disturbing, but you will soon realize that it is for your good that it all happened.....

Of course, sometimes we change from better to worst, from good to bad, and so how does it happen? Attitude or our faith in the change. Of course for the new change to bring better results, it is upon the individual to work on his mindset and attitude and then try to isolate or identify good things happening with the new change. For example, if you have changed your job from working monday to friday and you are now working in weekend, you may decide to find some more work to do in your week days. If you have been changed from room 1 to room 2, there must be something possible to be done in room 2 that was not possible in room 1, find out what it is and do it. Yeah, every new situation, every new friend, every new job or assignment has something better and different to offer, find out what it is and exploit it. That is how change is utilized........

Sometimes, what to do with the new change will not be clear, especially at the beginning, take it easy and wait on your God and self, you will soon figure out what best fits the new environment, the new job or the new friend. We end this by citing Joy Petty's compiled quotes,  "there is no such thing as a bad weather, what counts is the type of clothes we put on". As long as we know what suits a sunny or a rainy day,then we are safe. Good times.....
