“Change is gonna come”
Sam Cooke wrote that line. I wish he wasn’t right, at least about everything. But it all changes at one point or another. So annoying.
I’m not a stodgy person at all. I’m a big fan of lots of things going through change: seasons, sports seasons, underwear, attitudes, and scenery. But a lot of the time, change takes so much…effort. It’s not always easy effort either (which would contradict the definition of effort).
There’s no big changes happening in my life right now. No shocking news or anything. You want to know what got me thinking about this? My office chair. My office chair is what sparked a pseudo-deep thought about change.
In the past week or so, the chair has considerably ramped up its squeaky game. Almost to the level of ravenously annoying, but not quite.
That’s all. I noticed that my chair is lots squeakier now and I have to bring WD-40 from home to fix it. (Easy effort.) Or, should I just resign myself to using the NEW chair that’s in front of my desk and commit to parking my butt there for the next x amount of years?
There are things in my spiritual focus I want to change, I guess. The question will be, “Will my spiritual focus get squeaky enough for me to pay attention to it?”
