When we talk about change, the instantaneous vision zoom towards our ecosystem (duh, the place you’re co-habiting with million other species, psst who’re dying btw) a small disorder in the deck of cards, the mild dew creeping on the table from your coffee mug, the narrow creak of the drape’s chasm.
But have you ever wondered about changes in you and around the people you’ve been holding onto? When it comes to you, maybe you’ve gained or dropped a few kilos (I’ll NOT use pounds) out of heaven knows where, perhaps you’d find yourself stuttering and perspiring like a waterfall or trembling in anxiety of nothing. Or maybe the ones around you, gesture in clues that need the mind of a Sherlock rather than them sputtering out two to three words, or they would strain their lips and elongate it to smile as if they’re fidgeting with a rubber band on their face. Now my emo mood is definitely rampant. But change has also seen its better days. Like the time you’ve noticed the reflection capturing your hair growth and telecasted to your eyes the richness of a mermaid hair, you can imagine yourself smiling, your teeth flashing like a luminescent lantern plagiarising the originality of a unicorn and priding over it. Or you see two butterflies swirling in wild mating dance, fluttering over you but never caressing your skin: you’re disappointed but you’re satisfied at a worldly gaze-the creation of life.
Now coming onto your support system or the ones on the horizon of your circles: they mightn’t always notice changes and you mightn’t identify their evolution. The prominent factor being: the familiarity and subtle indifference to changes.
After all we’re scared of changes, merely because they’re uncertain. That’s a given factor, but we’re not just scared for freedom, we’re terrified of the repercussions. However we need to tread through darkness to recite the hymns of stardust.
So endure the electrocuting instances and brave the brewing hailstorm as the only inevitable is change, well that and oblivion; so better accept them.
Change is your constant, make it your companion and confront it with your armour of confidence because love you’re born for greatness and your creativity is the flood roaring to be let out and now is the time to have your outlet- let it out and inhale the empty novelty.
Change your perception of change.
