Change

I used to watch this show called, Everwood, on The WB (which is now The CW) … anyways … I forget which episode, but Ephram (main character) was narrating and I abosolutely loved his quote. I wanted to write about moving out on my own finally, but didn’t have the right inspiration to start it.

So maybe this quote will give me ideas and finally be able to write down my thoughs …..

The more things change, the more they stay the same. I’m not sure who the first person was who said that. Probably Shakespeare, or maybe Sting. But at the moment, it’s the sentence that best explains my tragic flaw: my inability to change.

I don’t think I’m alone in this. The more I get to know other people, the more I realize it’s kind of everyone’s flaw. Staying exactly the same for as long as possible, standing perfectly still … it feels better somehow. And if you are suffering, at least the pain is familiar. Because if you took that leap of faith, went outside the box, did something unexpected … who knows what other pain might be out there. Chances are it could be even worse.

So you maintain the status quo. Choose the road already traveled and it doesn’t seem that bad. Not as far as flaws go. You’re not a drug addict; you’re not killing anyone … except maybe yourself a little.

But you notice it. Inside you that change feels like a world of difference. And you hope this is it. This is the person you get to be forever…that you’ll never have to change again.ich, thank God, they never do.

But you notice it. Inside you that change feels like a world of difference. And you hope this is it. This is the person you get to be forever … that you’ll never have to change again.

When we finally do change, I don’t think it happens like an earthquake or an explosion, where all of a sudden we’re like this different person. I think it’s smaller than that. The kind of thing most people wouldn’t even notice unless they looked at us really, really close, which, thank God, they never do.

But you notice it. Inside you that change feels like a world of difference. And you hope this is it. This is the person you get to be forever…that you’ll never have to change again.

Change, something we all fear and loathe …

Quotes Of The Day

- "In the end, every relationship needs maintenance …Whether it’s the smallest gesture …or just picking up back where you left off. The bottom line is that if you care about someone, it’s pretty easy to make the sacrifice."

- J.D. (From Scrubs)
