We have tech changes to deal with here on SC but I fussed and fumed as I usually do, since many changes are not made at my convenience since I AM NOT the center of the universe. so I adapt E V E N T U A L L Y to most of the changes. How we adapt to changes is a big part of the life we make for ourselves. What is important to us, or are we just letting life slip right past us.
We all have Funerals mostly now, but we also have graduations, weddings and other celebrations. Every time I attend one of these, I think about, what happened along the way, and what life is all about, and I run the gamut of emotions. I am sure you do also. I still think it is a good idea to share some of these.
I recently bought high heeled red sandals, and felt giddy and foolish. I knew I may be risking a fall or my back going out of whack on me, but do you stay safe, or do you keep on keeping on, as long as it is possible? What exactly is, "GROWING OLD GRACEFULLY? I also bought some flowery loose type pants along with the shoes. Hey, you either buy what is out there, or wear the clothes and shoes you have forever. I know I will be remembered as "the ONE" in the flowered pantaloons.
You also get on the gol darned smart phones and take some pics for social medial, or you will have people like gaping birds in a nest waiting to see what happened. My younger sister, a high school English teacher, won't touch a computer or send a text. I don't want to be like my sister. My older brother lives on tech devices and I do not want to be like him either. My sister loves her family and I know she does not know that social media is the new gossip circle and my sister loves gossip. Gossip, is not a good thing, but staying connected to other people is absolutely the breath of life for all people and older people need all the LIFE they can get.
Changes for me and many are like the Dr. Seuss poem, "Green Eggs and Ham". We don't like anything strange and unusual, but people keep bugging us to try it and most us do and then we love it. Life brings changes, a fact. The only choice we have, is how we adjust to them. I felt honored to be allowed to share the milestones with all the people, even the funerals, and I tried to bring dignity and celebration to all the events. I also feel honored and proud to share this website, but I NEVER liked changes and may never accept them gracefully, but I am trying.
I got encouragement in accepting this site. I overcame the inertia and threw myself into the unknown to take a long auto trip, and overcame the obstacles to be part of the recent celebrations. Overcoming inertia gets harder every year for me, how about you?
Sudden changes and the inertia of the years will always upset my equilibrium. I can try to throw a smaller tantrum, I guess.
