Change Sometimes Hurts

Dale-ChangeIt is human nature to be complacent, we like consistency, we fear change. Yet, life forces us to change no matter how much you may fight it. It was a ritual to call my parents every Wednesday night while driving back from a restaurant. It was just a call to make sure everything was OK, they were in their 70’s and most of the time they were snacking and watching TV. In 2007 dad passed, and two years later mom left us. A void was created, the drive home on Wednesday nights haven’t been the same since.

When my children were born, my outlook on life changed. Things were great, babies were fun to hold, and talking to other parents was a different experience now that I was in the “parents’ club”.

Yet, my entertainment business remained the same. Life and the economy changed me, but my business model was the same. I invested in myself, seeking out a mentor and revamping my thought process about my entertainment business. I revamped the mbd2 website, while building new websites. I watched a busy forum slow to a snail’s pace; Facebook was the new fad. I wrote new copy, lost weight, invested in promotional pictures and material.

Change is not easy. It is going to happen. Can you control some of it? Yes! Things that you cannot control, you just hope and pray that they will make you stronger, better, and wiser.
