metathesiophobia - Fear of change

I remember reading a poster in Athena years ago which said "ships are safe in the harbour but that's not what ships are for". and more recently in a Ben's Brother track I heard the line "is it that you want me to change so you can stay the same".
Change is a natural process and the world is constant moving and changing; in fact standing still causes stagnation and we all know what that looks and smells like. The great +Gregory Bateson wrote that we can't step into the same river twice yet so many of fight change at all cost and try to hold onto something however painful it maybe. Management of Change is just that 'managing' taking charge of rather than being swept along by.
Don't fear change but embrace it with excitement. Oh the joy of learning from new possibilities
