Change allows for personal growth and lifestyle improvements. It permits you to re-evaluate things and view circumstances from a different angle and this requires and open mind. It brings along opportunities you would otherwise not be exposed too. It is a thrilling concept that means we can be forever flourishing; living exciting, colourful unpredictable lives.
Ten weeks into the year and my energy levels are starting to normalize. The initial vigor has been replaced with a sense of routine – reassuring, yet uncomforting at the same time.
Change. The word itself demands attention – whether referring to a delay in your flight departure time or a decrease in your dress size – changes are undeniably happening in our lives; the only logical thing to do would be to embrace it.
Having lived in the same city, in the same house and attending the same school for the 12 years I did, change was not really a prevailing occurrence in my life. Routine was the order of the day; sticking to the ‘plan’ just made things easier. So when prominent changes inevitably happened in my life I was pleasantly surprised at how well I was able to process and deal with it all. Perhaps a lack of change – and a strong desire for it, is exactly what adapted me for it.
This year alone I have moved out on my parent home, started studying (for the second time), cut my long hair short and had my first birthday away from home. I am constantly meeting new people and trying new things. Everyday can be an adventure if you allow it to be.
