If there is one thing I have learned over the years is that change is a good thing. Change allows us to grow and become the person we are meant to be. If we allow it…
Like most, I used to be afraid of change. The unknown. Not knowing what to expect or if and how it will work out. Too many times, I opted to stay in that very uncomfortable ‘comfort zone’ simply because it was familiar and I knew how to maneuver safely within. Minimizing the pain. At least I knew the pain I was already in and didn’t want to add more.
Looking back, knowing what I know now, I realize I could have turned my life around a long time ago! However, staying with what was familiar and seemingly safe, kept me stuck. I was not really happy, even though most people couldn’t tell, and I felt I was sinking deeper and deeper into a hole I eventually wouldn’t be able to climb out of.
I was STUCK!
Physically and mentally stuck. Until I started to make some changes. Since I am a Leo, I generally jump all in and figure things out as I go. My goal was to find my happiness. You can read about my story and steps I took in my book ‘Happiness Matters ~ Unleash Your Superpower in 7 Easy Steps‘.
Some changes I made were drastic, others not so much. Changes don’t have to be big in order to drastically change your life. Change does not have to be scary. It only seems scary simply because what is on the other side is unfamiliar. It’s like driving a car… Remember when you first started, how scared you were? It was scary and super exciting at the same time. Now, you don’t even give it a second thought. It’s the same with everything else. It is only scary until it becomes familiar.
Yes, you will ruffle some feathers along the way. Your own as well as some of those around you. That is totally alright! Do what feels right for you. Lead by example! It is amazing how my people you will encourage by changing yourself and finding your happiness. Make change your friend. That friend who you go on great adventures with and enjoy life.
Everything changes. Change is the one constant we can count on. Why not embrace it to change the things that will improve your life and help you reach your goals?!
