The Pain of Change

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Driven by fear we often cling to our circumstance,

unable to face that fear and move forward into uncertainty.

In doing so we may stagnate, the blockage causing problems

and the consequence of rejecting timely change.


Without our voluntary movement,

life forces the issue by conglomerating circumstance

and creating upheaval to transition change.

Always our choice: an easy or difficult path.


How often do we wait for change to force our hand,

rather than step forward with acceptance.

Knowing what will ensue does not always change our minds.

We are stubborn creatures.


But our fears run deep, sprouting roots that take hold,

entering our every moment and thought.

If only we realised that fear itself is the motivator,

the fear of fear itself the reality.


Developing trust is a necessary step to freedom,

accepting change and forging strongly forward.

Fear, when relinquished, is of no consequence,

lost to the movement of positive affirmation.

Thanks for reading Liliana. Yes, fear is our greatest inhibitor, limiting everything we can experience.

I wasted 8 years out of fear. I'm not wasting anymore. Pain is better than stagnation.

It's simple- if we accept change the road is smooth, if we reject it out of fear we create stumbling block. If we refuse change entirely, eventually life will force it to happen at our expense. Truth!

Re writing- I write about two hours a day, in between everything else. I have always been prolific and can write up to 5 pieces a day. That's just me. When writing a novel I can write 2- 3,ooo words a day.

Nice hub Tony, although I'm not entirely sure exactly what you are trying to convey in this hub (as your work is so damned excellent it could take a year to decode each piece) :D

p.s Where in the hell do you find all this spare time to be able to write daily?
