Changes and then more changes

I was going to start this narrative with another question but instead I’ll start with an observation. Most humans hate change… not just fundamental mind numbing panicing forced eviction change but even the smallest of changes like moving furniture or losing a usual parking space. Minor stuff and no more than irritating really. So when huge uncompromising change comes along most people just freeze or burst into tears why is that? Change is as important in our lives as food or water. Our ancestors had the unenviable task of dealing with unknown changes every day. Now we know that the sun comes up every day and warms through (sometimes) so we can get on with doing stuff. I am against doing the same stuff today as I did yesterday as it’s so mind numbingly boring it encourages self harm. I want something new every day and like some other people I know if it isn’t a bit risky then I ask myself how do I make it so. Behind every change forced upon us by incompetent public school boys playing at running a government there is an opportunity to be found. So when I see change it fills me with energy and enthusiasm for the next great idea to come along. So don’t just sit there change something, Moving the furniture about does not count…
