Change Is Good…Right?

I’m surrounded by change.  Everywhere I go things are changing at a pace that’s too fast for me.

Tonight my husband attended a marching band meeting for next year’s incoming freshman.  Next Tuesday, we’ll be attending another meeting at the high school for incoming freshman.  I can’t ignore it.  In three months, I’ll have a freshman in my house.

I’m not ready for it.

My middle child will be starting his final year of elementary school.  He’s making plans to be a school crossing guard, learning the trumpet and oh yes, sex ed starts next year.

I’m not ready for it.

And my baby has one year left of preschool and then he starts kindergarten.

I’m not ready for it.

It doesn’t matter. Change is coming and there’s nothing I can do about it.  Deep down, I don’t want to stop my boys from growing up. (That’s what I’m supposed to say, right?)

Those are changes I can’t control.  But the ones I can aren’t any easier.  Fear hangs over my head a lot lately.  I’m terrified of changing things and making horrible mistakes.

Fear can’t be in charge though. I’ve always been told that you can’t stand still for very long before you start to die inside.  You have to keep moving forward.

And no one said it was going to be easy.

Is change hard for you or do you embrace it?
