I have a hard time believing there are people out there who are afraid of change. I'll admit, someone hurling nickels and dimes at me does sound a little frightening (bad pun!), but things becoming different is so much fun!
Life would be awful if things never changed.
Proof: The Lions certainly wouldn't be in the playoffs!!! (I'm still freaking out a little. Super Bowl!!!!!!!)
And how could people really be afraid of changing if so many people make new years resolutions? Unless you're resolving to stay exactly the same, I'd say that's embracing changes.
I'm also assuming most people aren't afraid of change when it comes to their underpants.
I love change so much it's gotten to the point where my husband is afraid of what I've done to the house when he gets home from a long day.
"I saw you had the window open in our bedroom, and I was nervous that you had rearranged the whole house"
Really? I didn't know an open window could signify so much. In all fairness, I had moved the furniture in a third of our house the previous day... maybe he figured I wanted to round out to a whole number.
Happy 2012, everyone. Enjoy the changes that the new year brings!
