Leaving Behind the Familiar

There is something in humans that just like the familiar, particularly in me, no matter how crazy or weird the familiar environment or thing is we just cling to it, or should I say I cling to it.

I have been having a hard time letting go of something that is familiar and I try to create ways in my mind that I can make it work. I bounce the ideas off of Andy and I start by saying " I have a brilliant beyond brilliant idea!" Andy sees right through it and then asks me what I'm trying to avoid by caring out this brilliant idea.

So then I'm left back with the only true option- leave behind what is familiar and push on. I always thought I would like being on a spaceship and exploring new places, I'm starting to think I would not to do so well.

I'm with you on this one. I find familiarity and routine soothing.

that is funny, I am the same way, and I do the same thing. Who am I kidding when I try that with my husband? Actually, I think I am trying to kid myself.

I enjoy the same thing. It's comforting. It's good that you have a good guy to help you with that stuff.

I am inconsistent on this one. Sometimes I want nothing more to be in that familiar place doing the same thing I always do. But more frequently, I thrive on change--it keeps me going, because I'm always in the familiar, so when change happens, it's pretty exciting...
