For the next few weeks I am going to list words that move me. Perhaps they move you also. “Move me?” you might say!
I mean move you mentally. Cause you to take steps. Make you do something different, improve yourself.
My favorite word is ADJUST. “Now how can that move you?” is the question. Adjust is a synonym for the word change. I don’t like change, or at least the word. Change sounds harsh, abrupt. I would rather adjust. Let the world change … I’ll just adjust. It sound so much simpler.
Adjust is the way we learn and the way we deal with life. We adjust our thinking about something and we learn more. We open our minds (adjust) and we put in more knowledge. When we try one way, and it doesn’t work, we adjust, try a new path. It really is that simple. But we must be able, capable and eager to adjust. That’s the hard part. Looking for and being ready to adjust.
Somebody (I have looked it up but have not found who) said something like this. If you want to go somewhere you’ve never been … you have to do something you’ve never done.
That’s the long way of saying ….”ADJUST.”
