Time’s A Changin’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.
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.
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?
