Time’s A Changin’


'i hate time change' photo (c) 2009, peapodsquadmom - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/We skipped forward and hour this weekend.  This means longer daylight hours.  It also means I spent most of Sunday in my recliner with a heat thing on my eyes because my sinuses were killing me.  I don’t know why, but every time we move our clocks up or back, I get a headache.  It guess it could be mental, but even when I get an extra hour of sleep, it happens.  And you know me…I love sleep.

I guess it could be about adjusting to change.  I’m not a super fan of that.  Daylight earlier means that I don’t have an excuse not to get up and run before work.  Longer evenings means that I don’t have an excuse not to get more stuff done outside around my house before the really nice weather comes our way.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t adjust well to change much.  At first it seems awesome.  Then it makes me tired.  Then it seems overwhelming and makes me want to curl up in a ball.  And then it happens.  And it usually turns out just fine.

But I completely freak out before anything really happens.

It’s ridiculous.

Sometimes I wish I could just roll with things better.  I don’t want to have to think about it so much that I make myself sick for weeks before something actually happens.  The last time I changed jobs, I was sick for two weeks leading up to it and the week after.

Fantastic decision.

Small faith.

I would love to be one of those people who can say they are okay with whatever comes their way because they trust God completely.  Too often I get caught up in my own version of how things should play out and when they don’t go that way, that’s when I start the freak-out moments.

I know I’m not alone.

What about you guys?  How do you react to changes?
