Change can be a little scary, right? Like, we don’t often know what the change will bring, and so we fear the worst. Or, at least don’t expect the best outcome, and so we we fear change.
I used to hate change! I would do everything in my power to keep things from changing. If I could have controlled the sun, and how the Earth rotated around it, I would have done that. I felt that as long as I controlled things, it would be okay, or at least I might be able to semi-predict what was going to happen. So, I did things the same exact way every morning, I planned out my days, my life, my future. I did not react well to surprises, even if they were good surprises. I thought that I just needed to monitor my life and keep it all in order, and then it would be calm and uneventful and not scary.
The problem is, I cannot control life. In fact, I can’t even control what I do, so how the hell am I going to control everything around me?? And the more I tried to, the more frustrating it became. Then I met my husband, and he was full of surprises. And then, we had children, and forget controlling anything then!
What I realized is that, life is meant to be lived and enjoyed, not controlled. When I gave in to the fact that life is full of changes and surprises, it was a lot more peaceful. I don’t have to know what is coming next, or what is going to happen. And when I surrender to that, I am free to live in the moment. This is so liberating and freeing! I don’t have to live in stress anymore, but I can be free to live and love and create like I was meant to do.
So, that is what I am doing. Tomorrow starts a new chapter in my life. I am making changes that will move the trajectory of my life in a new direction, and I am so excited to see where it goes. I am embracing this change with open arms, and thrilled to see my passion grow and affect others. I am excited about not knowing what could happen because I am looking at the endless possibilities in front of me. I am embracing me, and the greatness that I am put here to be. I am looking at my future in front of me, and ready to quit talking and planning, and just do it. Isn’t it time that you made a change?
