Moments

Change can happen in a moment. A mere moment.

A song on the radio, full of nostalgia and a great beat, can pull you from the grumpies.

You can meet someone for the first time, and know in an instant that they’re going to be significant.

A bonus, or pay increase, discovered on a paycheck can suddenly lift a hovering financial stress.

Death, a last breath. That is changing.

Words expressed—and misinterpreted—in a matter of seconds can wound, confuse, strain a relationship.

A smile at (or from) a stranger can spin a mood.

I don’t have deep or extensive thoughts this morning, this is it. Just thinking on change, small change. Which can turn out to be so big, if you’re paying attention.

Are you?

  1. Janna, you are so right about things “changing on a dime” so to speak. The other day I had a heated argument with someone that I still feel deep inside my bones because it was sort of a turning point in our relationship — in my eyes. I am still fuming over it and know that I have to revisit the argument with this person to “clear the air”. But small things can have big consequences.
    Thank you for this post.

  2. I feel like I am living at the mercy of change this week! It’s so true that plans and life can change in an instant and we often have no control over it. I’m better at accepting those kinds of rapid changes than the ones that you have to dwell over for long periods of time, though. Except for this week. I’m done with surprises!

  3. You can’t plan for everything, that’s for sure!

  4. Change is constant, so I try to roll with the changes. It’s either that or get crushed. LOL! 🙂

  5. This is a good thing for all of us to remember, Janna. A simple word can change a person’s day for better or worse. We assume that people know how liked and appreciated they are, but that’s not always the case. Saying what you feel out loud can make their day!
