Change is a funny thing. It's something we all go through, an inevitable part of life. It can make us feel so many emotions at the same time; excitement, fear, anxiety, hope etc. As human beings we are creatures of habit. We all have our routines, a way of thinking and doing things and that makes us feel safe and content. We resist change. Why? Because with any great change comes great risk and adjustment. It's often unfamiliar, something we have never experienced before and that makes us vulnerable. To change something about our life, for example, a job, a home or a relationship is scary. There is the possibility that we may fail or be unhappy but on the flip side there is the equal possibility that we will succeed and be happier then we ever thought possible.
I'm going through a few changes in my life right now. Can you tell? Im excited, scared, anxious and hopeful, among other things, all at the same time. I'm taking a risk, hoping that it will be a positive change for me at this point in time. The beauty of this life is that there is no permanency to our decicions. We can change things for ourselves if we choose, it may not always be easy but it is possible. So, I've learned not to be afraid to take a chance, try something new. Could it backfire? Ofcourse. But it could also be the best thing I ever did. Afterall, isnt it better to follow your heart, try and fail then to be crippled by fear and never know what could have been? That's what I thought too.
