Change. It’s so hard. It’s not just the fear factor, it’s being uncomfortable – even if it’s only temporary. Still, it is always a good when we can adapt to change, hard as it often might be, with a smile, a sigh and just a bit of enthusiasm. There’s an amazing song on one of Quincy Jones albums, “Everything Must Change, ” sung by James Ingram. It describes the uncertainty and the promise of change.
The weather is turning cooler, the leaves are still falling from the trees. Those of us who live on the East Coast have turned back our clocks to welcome daylight a little earlier.
Already stores have begun displaying Christmas decorations. Thanksgiving is next week.
In just about an hour, Koko, the domestic shorthair will be back at Crazy Cat Lady’s residence in Philadelphia. We had a grand time and I will miss Koko as my secre-cat. For those who read this blog regularly, you know that Koko likes to sit on my lap while I write.
Of course, I will miss her but it’s time for her to go home and for me to change my routine a bit.
Koko, I know, will be all right. So will I.
Fear of missing out.
Do cats suffer from this? I used to worry about what I was missing out on and then I started to internalize a few things I know to be true.
What is meant for us will never pass us.
Trust in the power of God through the universe to act for our good if we are doing good.
Now, I never worry about what didn’t happen. I work towards bringing joy and light in my world.
