Changes





"If you want your life to be a magnificent story 
Then begin by realizing that you are the author 
And everyday you have the opportunity to write a new page" 


It's been awhile....how are things in your world?
There are lots of (good) changes happening in my neck of the woods... sometimes when it rains, it pours. This is one of those times.
Not too long ago, I was incredibly resistant to change of any kind...even when I was in an uncomfortable or painful situation, my preference was to stay with what was familiar. In some odd way, it felt safer to me at the time.
That is no longer true.
While I can't say that I am a big fan of change now, I am willing to take the necessary steps to make improvements when I need to. What I have learned is that the sooner I become willing to release my grip on whatever I'm clinging to (job, relationship, behavior, belief) and make space for something new to enter my life, change becomes a much easier concept to embrace. That slight shift, however small it may be, is often enough to allow me to view my situation from a different perspective. It allows me to be flexible and flexibility usually leads to movement, which can often lead to change. 

At least that's how it has worked in my life.

The journey thus far has not always been smooth...in fact, it has been pretty rocky at times. But, it's remarkable what lies in store when you are willing to take risks and say "Yes!" to life...I had no idea how good it could be.
