My life is caught up in a whirlwind right now. It’s not falling apart or anything, it’s just changing. Seriously y’all, I’m not kidding. Every single aspect of my life is going through a change. Some are minor adjustments but some are gigantic overhauls.

Most of the time I can cope just fine. It’s part of life, I remind myself. The only thing that stays the same is that everything changes, right?

Here’s the thing though, I don’t like change. Some of it is for the better and I’ll be thankful when I’m on the other side of it. Strike that: all of it is for the better. But these little growing pains are wearing my body out. I don’t want another Debbie Downer post, I think one per week is enough. I don’t want you to think I’m over here sulking and being all “woe is me” because, frankly, I’m not. I’m a rockstar and I’m powering through even though changes give me the heebie geebies. I even manage to genuinely smile all throughout the day.

Change can be a good thing and one day I’ll tell you a bit about it. Until then, just know that I’m soaking life in bit by bit. I’m finding the joy in all of it! Not like I have to look hard, have you SEEN my baby? Plus, I’m a Christian and you know what that means? It means I have hope. God knows what’s best and He’s going to work it all out according to His purpose, and His purpose is the best purpose. (And if I repeat that enough times, I’ll actually believe it… still working on that part!)

So my cute baby, my sexy husband with the fantastic smelling armpits, and I are going to huddle together and enjoy every moment of this crazy life. Because that’s the best we can do, right?

    Change is very difficult. I like to mix things up now and again but only on my terms…. when things start changing on their own I get weirded out. But, like you said, huddle together and enjoy this crazy life. Keep your chin up! 🙂

    Huddle, cuddle, and praise God for His presence in your life, giving you that precious hope and comfort. Remember Jeremiah 29:11-14! I lifted you up in prayer this morning…and last night 🙂

    I’ve never liked change because I want to be in control. Guess what? I’m never in control. Aren’t you glad? I know I am. God’s plans are way better than mine could ever be because He loves us more than we’ll ever be able to comprehend. Hugs to you, Chelsea.

    Oh girl, you and me both. I’m not a fan of change. I’m such a creature of habit. I heard a quote one time… “change is inevitable….except, when it comes from a vending machine.” Hope that puts a smile on your face this morning! xoxo 🙂

    Glad you are finding the joy in the midst of it all. 🙂

    The last part, including the fantastic smelling armpits part, made me laugh 🙂 I hope that all the change will bring you out stronger and happier on the other side. You’re never alone in this world, that’s one of the best things about it 🙂

    Joy, not happiness, I have always heard is much more impt. And aren’t we glad, as Christians, we can choose JOY, even among all the chaos of change. And in the midst of all that change we always know that our Lord NEVER changes! Hallelujah! Keep on keepin on, sweetie….but really, armpits???

    I HATE CHANGE. Whatever is going on in your life, I can appreciate the total discomfort the change is bringing you. If you hold on, eventually it will be normal, not change anymore. At least that’s what I keep telling myself 😉
