A is for Adjustments

There have been a lot of adjustments the last few years. Autism, working from home, and my youngest starting school at age 3. A few pets and some major repairs. 

Adjustments aren't always easy to make but at times they is no other choice. The things that lead to them cannot be changed, so they must be taken in stride. The positive will hopefully outweigh the negative. 

Decreases in income cause an examination of expenses and savings practices. Emergency expenses  lead to the reevaluation of everything when the money to cover them makes time harder. 

Children starting school means that stay at home moms are now alone during the day. Stay at home, work at home moms find that they are now unable to concentrate for a completely different reason. They have gotten so used to having little hands interrupting them regularly that they cannot concentrate without them.

Volunteering at the school, paying for field trips and pictures, scheduling appointments it is all very challenging. It is a large adjustment to add to the daily list of things to do when there is only one person handling them.

Now the adjustment of larger income, or of having the source of your problems leave your life is one that most will jump for joy at making. 

What's the easiest adjustment you have ever made? What was the most difficult? Why is adjusting met with resistance when it requires us to make changes?
