ADJUSTMENT

ADJUSTMENT

MAKING ADJUSTMENTS ARE A PART OF LIFE WE ALL MUST GO THROUGH.  THE MOST DIFFICULT PART OF MAKING ADJUSTMENTS IS MOST OF US PREFER STABILITY.  WHAT MAKES ADJUSTMENTS MORE DIFFICULT IS TO FIGHT THEM EMOTIONALLY AND MENTALLY, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU’VE BEEN USED TO SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.  BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER, LET’S AT THE DEFINITION OF ADJUSTMENT.

WEBSTER DEFINITION OF ADJUSTMENT-1.  A SMALL ALTERATION OR MOVEMENT MADE TO ACHIEVE A DESIRED FIT, APPEARANCE OR RESULT.  2.  THE PROCESS OF ADAPTING TO OR BECOMING USED TO A NEW SITUATION.  

DAILY WISDOM WORDS DEFINITION-1.  TO BECOME ACCUSTOMED TO A SITUATION, AND ALTER IT IN SOME WAY CAUSING CHANGE OR DISRUPTION.

I REMEMBER THREE YEARS AGO, MOVING FROM OUR HOME IN ANOTHER PART OF DENVER, IN A HOME WE HAD LIVED IN FOR 22 YEARS.  I AM NOT THE GREATEST WHEN FIGURING OUT DRIVING DESTINATIONS, EVEN WITH THE PHONE APPLICATION ON GOOGLE DIRECTIONS.  IRONICALLY, I SOLD NEW CONSTRUCTION FOR OVER FIFTEEN YEARS, AND HAD TO TELL THE BUYER WHICH WAY THEIR HOUSE WOULD FACE ON THE LOT.  I OFTEN HAD TO WORK AROUND THIS AS I COULDN’T GIVE THEM THE EXACT ANSWER. 

MOVING OUT OF THIS SMALL TOWN FROM A BIG HOME WITH A BIG, HUGE KITCHEN WAS A HUGE CHANGE FOR ME, ESPECIALLY SINCE MY MOTHER LIVED EXACTLY THREE MINUTES FROM OUR OLD HOME.  WE MOVED TO A MUCH BIGGER CITY NEAR DENVER PUTTING US IN A MUCH SMALLER HOME, AND TWENTY-FIVE MINUTES FURTHER FROM MY MOTHER.  THIS WAS A HUGE ADJUSTMENT FOR ME, AND EVEN NOW, AFTER LIVING IN THIS HOME FOR THREE YEARS, I HAVE A HARD TIME GETTING TO WHERE I NEED TO GO, AND NO LONGER ENJOY COOKING AS I ONCE DID WHEN MY CHILDREN WERE YOUNGER, AND YES, I MISS MY OLD KITCHEN.  THIS WAS A HUGE ADJUSTMENT FOR ME.  

WE ALL HAVE TO ADJUST TO NEW THINGS, AND SOMETIMES THEY END UP BEING FOR THE BETTER AND SOMETIMES THEY PROVE MORE DIFFICULT.  HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED WHEN SOMETHING IS MORE DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE, IN THE END YOU LEARN SO MUCH MORE FROM A DIFFICULT ADJUSTMENT?  WE ALSO GROW AS INDIVIDUALS, ESPECIALLY IF WE FIGHT RESISTING THE ADJUSTMENT.  

THERE ARE OTHER ADJUSTMENTS IN LIFE MUCH MORE DIFFICULT SUCH AS THE LOSS OF A LOVED ONE, ESPECIALLY A CHILD.  WE LOST MY NIECE WHEN SHE WAS THREE DAYS SHY OF HER THIRD BIRTHDAY FROM SIDS.  MY LITTLE SISTER NOR MYSELF WERE NEVER QUITE THE SAME AFTER THAT.  MY SISTER SUFFERED TERRIBLY FROM HER CHILD’S LOSS BUT MANAGED TO RAISE TWO GIRLS AFTER THIS.  SHE HAS HAD TO GO THROUGH SOME OF THE MOST DIFFICULT ADJUSTMENTS IN LIFE, AND HOW SHE HAS MANAGED TO SURVIVE THEM ATTESTS TO HER STRONG CHARACTER AND SOUL.  THERE ARE ALWAYS RESIDUAL AFFECTS FROM ADJUSTMENTS.  

MY SISTER WORRIED EXCESSIVELY ABOUT HER TWO GIRLS AS THEY GREW UP, AND USED TO CALL ME IN A PANIC WHEN THEY WERE LATE COMING HOME.  THIS HAD MUCH TO DO WITH THE LOSS AND GRIEF SHE HAD TO SUFFER AFTER LOSING HER LITTLE GIRL, MY NIECE.  

SOMETIMES ADJUSTMENTS MEAN A MORE POSITIVE SITUATION WHEN WE MAKE THEM OVER TIME.  WE MUST REMEMBER THAT ADJUSTMENT AND CHANGE ARE A PART OF LIFE AND IF WE ARE NOT CHANGING, WE ARE NOT GROWING.  

THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING ABOUT ADJUSTMENT TODAY.  HAVE A BEAUTIFUL AND BLESSED DAY.
