“All good things come an end, all bad things come to an end. What’s the point? There is no point. That’s the point.” ~ Unknown
Change is everywhere, yet at that same time, we also fear change. The reasons for our fear are numerous, however, there is one common denominator. Our fear of the unknown. We ask ourselves “What if this happens or what if that happens?” Many times we’re comfortable where we’re at whether it’s our job, our relationship with our partner, our friends, our homes or anything in between. Because this fear we stay in our comfort zone unwilling to take the leap of faith that we need to do in order to advance in life.
The vocabulary(dot)com site defines change as to become different in some particular way, without permanently losing one’s or its former characteristics or essence. It also says that change is the balance of money received when the amount you tender is greater than the amount due.
Think about this for a moment. You go to the store to buy a loaf of bread. When you get to the register the cashier tells you that your total is say $1.98. You hand the cashier a $5 bill and she gives you some money back. Change is good, right?
I recently found the following social media post the other day and thought I’d share it:
Change is the best decision anyone can ever gift to themselves. Don’t be afraid to take those first steps even though your feet aren’t firmly planted on the ground.
If you’re surrounded with constant negativity, remove yourself and you will feel the layers fall away the further your distance increases. Most times you harbour bad feelings from others and can’t decipher which ones actually belong to you because it’s so constant.
Make that much needed change. Leave that shitty job. Remove people who hurt you from your life. Cut off others who leech and thrive from your goodness and kind spirit. Leave behind the one who cannot reciprocate your love.
The choice lies within YOU to make everything around you a better, more enjoyable and deserved world. 💖
Thought for the day: A couple of acronyms regarding change. “Forget” Everything And Run or Face Everything And Recover. Also False Evidence Appearing to be Real.
