I just finished writing an article on change/moving and had MAJOR writer's block. It's submitted, so here I sit listening to the rain outside my window -- such a lovely sound -- and reflecting on change. I'm convinced that every day we must strive for it! Even if it's in little ways, like putting your right leg into your jeans before your left.
Or sleeping with your head at the foot of your bed for a night.
Or taking a walk instead of surfing the internet.

Making a habit of change keeps us from getting crusty. I think we all naturally lean toward stale (though some fight harder to avoid it) and the only way to stay fresh is to change and grow.

Honesty and humility could be at the root of change. If your heart is to change, it will require an honest inventory of what's in there. It will require humility to admit to the cobwebs and clean them out. The same goes for relationships: if they are to thrive and remain that -- relationships -- honesty and humility must be absolute essentials.

Note to self: Let your hair down, invite Jesus in, brace yourself for pain and reward in the same breath, and don't forget to laugh at yourself.
