Camels and Change

By September 2, 2010 6 Comments

Several years ago, Vicki and I visited the Canary Islands in connection with an evaluation I was doing in a child custody matter.  While we were there, we rode a camel.  I learned that camels have the interesting tendency to grumble and complain with every command that the wrangler issued.  He would command them to kneel so the rider could mount up – and the camel would grumble and complain.  He then commanded them to stand, and again grumbling and complaining.  Basically anything that represented a change brought on the attitude.  How are you handling the changes in your life?  Remember, better is always different.  Look at the changes in your life as amazing opportunities to experience something better, rather than just grumbling and complaining about having to move.

    Why complain or grumble?….nobody listens and or just making yourself upset, so just get the job done and move on, that’s my motto!

    What a great thought! Thanks for sharing! Far too often in my own life I have been fearful of things that are better, just cuz they’re different!

    This is so very true! It is easier to go through life if you recognize change as an opportunity and instead of grumbling about the change embrace it and learn what God has for your to learn!
