Tuesday Open Thread ~ 19 MAR 19 Last day of winter
The ability to adapt to change is critical to growth
Welcome to the ongoing Tuesday edition of an open thread where your thoughts are scrutinized beyond reason, for no reason, as it is quite as important as your unreasoned (or otherwise) impressions of this illusion we call today. Call it potentially preposterous.
Today, we have chosen change as a topic maybe worth your synaptic reflex. Seems about as good as any at this point. Had originally thought chance might be a fun topic, but that changed. The planning committee then considered choice as a viable subject, which was tabled for further review, due to lack of a quorum. Given the choice we chose change.
Although social change seems to happen on a glacial scale, personal change can be immediate.
I'm pretty sure about that. And change is not always good. The consequences are not always clear.
I do feel a new way of thinking about ourselves and the world is a change we need to develop and encourage among each other. In a positive way.
Possible views of the concept --
5. a shell to be broken (think seeds) to grow
6. metamorphoses -- like butterflies
9. something unexpected -- like, I changed my mind, I think
10. a constant in life ?
11. perhaps inevitable
Changes can come from without or emanate from within. They may occur thru verbal, mental and physical cues. It may come in a flash or a gradual awakening. Some circumstances are more conducive to realizing change. Are there spaces you find that are more likely to cause change in your life?
We are trying to pare down the possibilities to somewhere south of infinity, so will pause it here.
Thanks for reading and sharing all of your ideas!
