Change Is Easy: Here’s A Fun Way to Begin.
Oh yikes, change. Talk about a loaded word.
Change is good. Change is hard. I don’t wanna change. I really wish he/she would change. I’m ready for a change.
Either way, change implies a separation. A gap between where I am here, and where I’m looking at over there. Crossing that distance can seem overwhelming.
I don’t know about you, but I can get bogged down with even starting. And then I learned a new way to look at change:
It’s simply something new.
You are already enough, here. And there’s nothing wrong with you over there, It’s just relocation. Another turn on the spiral.
When I see change as simply something new, it becomes fun.
I don’t need to reorder my life, I can simply give something a whirl. I’m not required to create world peace, I can just try kayaking. Who knows where it will lead? It may lead nowhere, but getting there might be everything.
Trying something new — even something small — is a dynamic reminder that it’s never too late to change your life.
