CHANGE... is what we need!

So I just got this phone...it was a gift from a special friend and I'm trying to meander my way through it...its somewhat complex. One year without a touch screen phone and I adjusted to the basic qwerty key pad...now what?! I feel like a fish out of water. Lord, I misssssss my old reliable BB Bold 5.

Don't get me wrong... I'm not being an ingrate. I had even 'moaned' and 'whinned' for this phone (get your minds out of the gutter... I meant that figuratively) hahahah! but I can't seem to wrap my mind around how I've wasted 48hours just trying to climatise to one piece of gadget that now has my work/social life electronically wrapped around it. Again I miss my old phone. I miss my traditional way of pinging...typing...and writing my pieces on the memo pad (Don't laugh joor).

SEE! This pretty stylish BB Zwhatever its called doesn't even have a regular memo pad. Aaaarggggh! I'm peeved. Infact I'm not even trying to celebrate my joining the league of 'Elite Smart Phones Users' (not that I'm the first...but then...sorry mum, I'm not washing the phone) Hahahah! Tongue out!!!

Now I'm sure many other people go through the exact same feeling of transition when change occurs in our lives. We seek out change, moan for it and desire it but when it does come...We are unable to embrace it because we are stuck in our old ways. We hold on to the very attachments we have formed in every way possible even if its imperative that we must move ahead into a new phase.

This is remiscent of how we behave when we experience change with Work, Property, Relationships, Love, Life or even Politics. We hold on tight to the things and ideology we are used to, even if its time to let it go, drop them and create room, so we can open ourselves to better things and a brand new experience.

Ever seen the heartbroken woman who wouldn't forge ahead or date someone else because she's still stuck on her ex-boyfriend who dumped her and wants him back by all means...even if its evident to all n' sundry that the relationship is a First class template for the term "Good Riddance"? Or the single one who will rather maintain sexual liason with her married ex because she's too afraid to be vulnerable with a new man? What's even there to lose? ...Jump in the famous "Law of Okafor" (once chopped, always chopped?) Ha!

Ever seen the man who wouldn't give out or sell his 34 year old 1979 'Knocked' Volkswagen Passat which hasn't left its parking spot in the last 15 years because...Wait a minute...The Car is Elizabeth, his first baby! The first piece of acquisition he bought with his first earnings (and please bro don't call it VINTAGE biko...the engine no even dey ladipo anymore) meanwhile he has 3 other brand new top of the range automobiles gracing his garrage...Abeg what say you na? or the man who likes to have sex in the same way, same positions, and even the same bloody place (just imagine he has knacked 50 women the same way, in the very same place) Taaaaa!!!

Or perhaps the community who wouldn't find the courage to change their Leaders even if its evident that their leaders are unwilling to acheive the progress that's beneficial to the community it claims to serve?! Instead they will rather sit by and hand over their future to certain political parties or political warlords because they are 'afraid' to go against the system.

Or the taxi driver who's been taking the same bad-road-by-pass for the last 5 years even if its apparent that there's a better route, maybe longer but still relatively better for the car and for timing as well. Or the person who is stuck on a particular brand of beer, liquor, cigarette or any product at all even if there's no actual basis to prove its 'superior' quality other than paid advertising and the person's preference based on 'habit'.

In other words, I have realised that humans are products of HABIT...and by that, it becomes rather difficult for us to embrace change as we ought to. We are worried about stepping out of our comfort zone or starting all over again a brand new process. We are 'afraid' of relying on the process of change even if it means missing out on the dividend s...because of the supposition that it may not end up better...(Perhaps the devil we know is better than the angel we do not know...He he he...) But I just learned that "Our life does not get better by chance, it only gets better by CHANGE..." CHANGE is constant in life...Yes...and...'constant' is what we NEED! (Tossing my tired old Bold 5 into the trash can) Lol.

Have a Fruitful Friday Lovelies...And Oh! Feel free to comment right here on this page and please share this page with your friends and frenemies if you liked it. Kisses!
