Get what we've always got

(turn and face the strain)
Dont want to be a richer man
(turn and face the strain)
Just gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me
But I cant trace time
- David Bowie

Change is simple yet so very hard. To make our diet better we can simply give up drinking fizzy drinks (simple yeah?). But most of us like drinking fizzy drinks and it is EVERYWHERE! The fact that a bottle of water costs more than twice the size in fizzy drink is ridiculous.

The thing that makes change hard is that it changes what is comfortable for us. We have done things so habitually that we don't think anything of it. Those people who are fat didn't wake up fat but gained 1 pound a week or two. Those that have had a much better income than 5 years ago, most likely had worked hard for 5 years and getting small constant pay rises rather than a quick job change.

However, there are many things that we do benefit from changing our routines. We get new insights from working at the different place. We stop eating dairy and found out just how much of it is in packaged food goods. We walk to work and save $3 a day, $15 a week or a whooping $720 a year.

Change is normally good, we can learn a lot from it. Don't try and ignore it or be afraid of it. If you want your life to be better than you have to change or stick to what you have always gotten.

This guy will bring huge changes. Not just because he could be the new president but because (and I don't like focusing on this, but too many Americans can't stop focusing on it) he might be the first ever black president.

Hopefully any changes that happen to the good old US of A is for the better.
