We’ve all been there. You want a change. To shake things up. Get out of your comfort zone. Try new things.
Things may seem bad where you are. Stagnant. Boring. Dull. Monotonous.
They’re dependable. Reliable. Safe. Comfortable.
Why look to change? I mean, what’s so great about doing more? Overachieving? Responsibility? Those don’t get you nap time (Why did we get rid of that? Best part of the day.).
Not that sitting in the mire is great. Pigs seem to enjoy it. They don’t seem to mind. Sure, sometimes it smells. Sometimes it’s dirty. But, it keeps the flies off your skin.
What does change get you? It can’t even buy you a soda pop any more. And, if you’re a pig, changing means you’re ham. Not fun (but tasty).
Of course, new things aren’t all bad…they just take getting used to. Then they become stagnant and boring and constant and reliable. Then you want something different.
Change is like a bad drug. The more you get, the more you want. Instead of seeking the new, we should just find ways to remain comfortable and complacent where we are.
