You cannot expect to achieve new goals or move beyond your present circumstances unless you change.
All of my life, when asked or the conversation topic came up, I would state "I really don't like change!". And I meant it. I believed that I disliked change. I resisted change whenever possible saying that I loved traditions, liked the 'comfortable' and embraced 'old favorites'. The truth that I realize now? I was plain old SCARED of change.
Don't fear change -- embrace it. Anthony J. D'Angelo
When, in 2009, I finally decided to reclaim my own life and start to work hard on becoming who I thought I was deep-down-inside of me, I realized that the ONLY way to get back to ME was to make changes and some big ones! And so the shift from disliking change to embracing it and actually looking forward to changes began. Slowly at first with some trepidation. I stumbled plenty when trying to make the life changes and there were times when the familiar seemed much more appealing than the new, the change I was endeavoring to move toward, but - - you know what? I kept moving. When I fell, I got up and looked toward the destination and kept going. And life started changing - - all around me -- and always for the better!
And then... in 2011, I became stagnant. I stopped changing. And 2011 was a year of questions for me and self-examination until... sometime in the late months of the year, I decided it was time for a big, bold change in my life. I realized I'd let negativity creep into my life, worries... and with one big shove of determination I pushed them OUT!
