Resistance is Futile

Why is it that as humans we tend to resist change?  For the most part our species prefers the status quo.  The only time we actively create a change is when the pain of the status quo becomes unbearable or the benefit associated with the change becomes greater than the cost to change. Here's what I know. Change is inevitable.  It's part of evolution.  And challenging life conditions like economic, environmental and social crises serve as pain points that inevitably become unbearable and force us to change.  And, we always have a choice.  We can resist, deny or complain about the transition that is taking place or we can accept and embrace it.  We can fight it or join the game.  Resisting what is happening creates stress.  Accepting it and then choosing your next move in the game is far more peaceful...and fun.

Right now is a time of great change in our world. Choose to engage or react, but don't push against it.  Resistance is futile.
