“People are always saying that change is a good thing. But all they’re really saying is that something you didn’t want to happen at all… has happened.”
Several of my friends have been going through major changes lately. Some for the better. Some seem like for the worst but we’re believing they are the dark before the dawn of a beautiful new day.
This afternoon I am contemplating change and how oxymoronic it seems that one of the few constants in life is that everyday there is the opportunity for change and the hope of a better tomorrow.
I also think it’s very strange that the money returned after you over pay for something is called change. Taking what’s owed out of a dollar bill and returning a few coins that may rattle around in a pocket until they find their way to a washing machine or an empty coffee can or work their way out through a hole to drop unnoticed to the ground.
The winds change. The times they are a changing. Fashion changes. Technology changes. Women have long established their prerogative to change their minds without rhyme or reason.
I started writing this with the quote at the top feeling like a subtitle for the story of my life but as I’ve been writing another quote from the same movie is the one I want to claim instead.
“You are daring to imagine that you could have a different life. Oh, I know it doesn’t feel like that. You feel like a big fat failure now. But you’re not. You are marching into the unknown armed with… Nothing. Have a sandwich.”
