Change can be a good thing

Hi everyone! πŸ‘‹ Have you ever looked around you and taken notice of how much things have changed? I feel like I often tend to focus on what hasn’t changed but the other night when I couldn’t sleep (no surprise there πŸ˜‚) it got me thinking. Things are happening that I wouldn’t have believed could be at all possible in the past and it’s so strange.

I glanced around my room and also took a moment to look through my mind’s eye. It’s a nice feeling when you acknowledge the fact that you’re growing as a person (and I don’t mean like Alice when she was in wonderland and ate that little bit of cake and hit the roof. I’ve always thought those things should have told her what they were going to do to her instead of simply saying “drink/eat me” but it’s far too late for that πŸ€·πŸ˜‚).

Maybe times like these are the reason I don’t stop to pat myself on the back when I achieve something, I like it to hit me like a tidal wave in a moment of realization πŸŒŠπŸ˜‚

I sometimes see flashes of the past and how different things were. Each frame relating to various aspects of my past reality seems to have altered and it’s interesting to compare it to my present. I can’t get my head around it all but I like it. I’m going to end this post with a quote that I feel really captures this moment in time:

Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong

I found it on Google images and it links back to the Pinterest profile YourTango. Change can be a good thing and I’m beginning to realize that more and more every day, even when it hurts to do so. It gets me excited for what the future holds and for things that I once used to say no to but am now taking the plunge and doing what I want even though it scares me.

I wanted to share this moment with you as it feels like a momentous occasion for more reasons than I can put my finger on. Thank you for reading guys! 😊 I hope you’re well and having a great day! πŸ’–

  1. I’ve always been scared of change and still am to some degree but making some changes in my life and taking the chance has actually made me far happier than I ever thought!

  2. β€œGrowth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong”- One of my favorite quotes now.
    Beautiful post . I’m currently going through a lot of changes myself and I’m scared and excited at the same time , but nothing really great
    comes from being complacent and stuck in your comfort zone ,does it ?😊

    1. Thank you so much! Yeah it definitely doesn’t, you get things that are more unexpected if you put yourself in out of the ordinary situations. It just takes some time to get there but I’m sure it’s worth it πŸ’–

  3. Beautiful post and I agree with you! ❀ I'm still scared of change though so I will have to get use to it. Change can also be beautiful – you are so right with that. It's just that I always love that nothing changes as it makes me feel anxious and overwhelmed soon. After I'm getting used to something then I get happy again and can live in that comfortzone.

    1. Thank you!! I can relate so much to being in that space where you don’t want things to change (unless it means good things will come along) as it gets me nervous. One day you’ll look back from a whole new comfort zone and realize that you’ve come so far to alter that reality if you know what I mean? πŸ’–
