Winds of Change.

"..............The wind of change
Blows straight into the face of time
Like a stormwind that will ring the freedom bell
For peace of mind
Let your balalaika sing
What my guitar wants to say........"

When the Scorpions sang this sure they were not referring to the same winds of change that I am talking about. Then why did I put part of these lyrics onto my blog...well just like that. Wanted to start my blog with eloquence :) I guess. 

Am amazed at how people change with the winds of change. My inspiration to write this note on my blog might rise from my current corporate experiences but have definitely seen this in plenty in my personal life too. Its all about changing your beliefs, your outlook - sometimes even your personal morals to accommodate to what the winds of change blow in your way. 

Adapting to change is probably what drives this universe but what really cheeses me off is when people change so drastically to adapt to these winds of change. Would you for example do something like this - Be able to call something crappy - absolutely shitty a few months ago and uphold the same thing or person and put them on a pedestal a couple of months later? Without no change whatsoever being effected on the object/person in question but simply because the circumstances changed???
I don't think I can ever do that. That would probably happen only in two situations in my case :
a. either I was not completely informed to begin with and had been too quick to form my opinions OR
b. The person or thing has changed in its elements....and really tried hard to be different.

But beyond this..I definitely don't think my impressions and moral values would undergo such a drastic change just because the circumstances changed...

But like I said before - what amazes me endlessly is how easily and quickly some people I know 'adapt' to these winds of change. Don't know if I have to pat them on their back and say - WOW, what an ability. Or Pat myself and say congrats - you are strong! 
This again probably would depend on the circumstances and the winds of change :) 
The irony called life!
