Written for: dVerse Poets Pub – Haibun Monday, “Winds of Change”
(posted by HAYESSPENCER)
“I want you to pay attention to how you feel, how you react to change, how you grow or how you become less due to changes.”
The idea of change, at times, raises my anxiety
level. One specific example is having to leave a job
I loved after a merger, and seek new employment.
Thoughts ranged from, ‘I will not know anyone,
what if my work is unsatisfactory,’ to, ‘I will not be able
to go on an interview, or get past that first day.’ I managed
to overcome my fears, and learned I could accept change,
whether I embraced it or not. That is an important lesson.
Can it be–

an anxious time?
