When I was younger I struggled with math. My mom used money and making change to help me with math and more specifically fractions. Ever since those lessons about making change I have been quite interested in money and making change.
Change is defined as altering the state of something or making something different. Did you know that things you do every day change the DNA in your body? Here is a pretty interesting article about the type of DNA and how often it changes. Of course most of the changes we make to our DNA are small and our bodies DNA is still so unique that it can be used as an identifier but, the fact still remains that we are constantly changing.
Change can be exciting and scary. I think most of us love routines and schedules and change to these things can “throw off” our grooves. I have had friends in retirement age take custody of grandkids, this is a big change for them and I am sure they were a little bit frightened. My friends are adjusting and now a change would be not raising their grandchild.
That word adjusting is a little misleading isn’t it? There is a lot to change. Here is another blog post dealing with change. One take away from the article from the last link for me was the concept of using change to create positive outcomes. Is this possible? I have to say yes. I have seen people change from victims to survivors and even champions just by changing their mindset. These people understand how to use their input to make all change positive.
When I was a kid I liked change more than dollars. You only had one dollar for every 100 pennies! I would much rather carry around pennies. As an adult I look at pennies as a hassle.. The penny did not loose its value I changed my mindset.
Once you realize you have this power and start exercising it I would be shocked if you were not rewarded with some incredible results. Be positive today, change will happen and that positivity is your tool to make that change good.
