As we change seasons, travel from one time zone to another, move from one place to another there is a noticeable shift in our attitude, outlook and response.  When we move from the familiar to the unfamiliar, there is a period of adjustment of adaptation and becoming comfortable with the change.


Change is easier for some than others. Those who look forward to change often have a sense of adventure, an open mind, and a desire to explore something new and different.  Those who are more comfortable with the familiar, prefer the status quo may not be interested in change nor necessarily resistant to it, they like things the way they are and do not want to upset the proverbial apple cart.  Life, for them, is balanced and predictable, why risk the unknown?


Some transitions are inevitable, such as aging and moving through the stages of human development from birth and infancy, childhood, adolescence, young adult, adult, and older.

What we learn in each of those stages we take along to the next.  Erik Erikson believed there is a developmental task associated with each stage and that it is difficult to move on to the next stage without becoming somewhat confident and comfortable in a particular stage.  Look at your own stage of evolving development and consider what you want for the next one, regardless how old you may be.
