You know when you can feel a small change making other small ripple-changes(I just made that word up. Copyright me.) in your life?
Maybe you don’t know what I mean. To be completely honest I think this is the first time that I’ve had a small change make lasting ripple-changes(Still mine.) It happens more than we think, but the opposite is a lot easier to observe. When a major life event out of our control creates an earthquake that changes everything and leaves fractures.
The major events are easier to notice. When something big happens, a birth or a death for instance, everything changes immediately, with little changes radiating out from the epicenter. Maybe we don’t notice these changes for years, but they already happened. Ripple-changes are harder. We make a decision, or something changes in our daily routine, and other small things begin to change a little more slowly. Little changes ripple out to be bigger changes.
I like those classifications; Earthquake-changes and Ripple changes.
Ripple changes can be harder to notice because the initiating event isn’t always obvious. It can be hard to track them back to their start, as opposed to just the smaller ripple. I think I’m noticing the beginning of a set of ripples. I’m very curious to see if they will continue, and what the current ripples will turn into.
I’ve had my share of Earthquakes. I don’t really want anymore unplanned ones. I’m sure I’ll have some. Why else would they be called unplanned? I won’t get in to it today, maybe soon though. I’d like to have some more Ripples. They’re a little more easily adjusted to and planned around. I’d like some minor changes.
How about you? Any Earthquakes or Ripples recently? Were they good or bad?
