There have been a lot of changes in life as of late. The personal, family, and career arenas have all been affected and things are changing at a rapid pace.
In the past, I may have sat with my head in my hands and thrown a pity party for myself, feeling unprepared and stressed out about the direction my life was going in. But as time has passed and my defense shields have fortified, I feel like I can take on just about anything. (Disclaimer: Surprisingly, I was by no means prepared for last Sunday’s Game of Thrones episode, which seriously threw me into a tizzy.)
This time around, I’ve actually decided not to give any of these changes much thought. Whereas in the past I might make endless pro/con lists, pose incessant questions to my friends and family, and maybe even arrange for a “life assessing” conference of sorts, this time around I’m just going to let it flow. Yes, let it flow. (It think they call this moment of enlightenment “gaining perspective”.)
I love change. I really do. I absolutely abhor routine and sameness (which has, at times, been a problem). So what better way to revel in this rapid change by embracing it and moving freely with it, instead of against it.
It’s scary. It’s unknown. It’s unpredictable. But I think that is just what I need right now.
I tell my friends ALL of the time: “I’m not worried about you. You will always land on your feet. And if I do become worried about you, I’ll let you know immediately so we can reassess.”
It’s time to take some of my own advice, and JUST NOT WORRY. Change is imminent; some better than others. So take it on. Flow with it. And just wait to see what happens next.
Here’s to a thought full weekend. Go out there and make some change!
