I had a different blog post planned out for this week, but it seemed that life had other plans as it threw a few unexpected changes our way (don’t worry, nothing bad, we’ve just had to move sooner than originally anticipated – such is the life of renters). As a result my time for blogging this week was more limited than usual. However, this process has made me think about my relationship with change.
If I’m honest, I’m very much a creature of habit and dislike sudden changes of plans. However, if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years it’s that change (like death and taxes, as they saying goes) is one of life’s many constants.
While my first urge is to try to resist change, I’m slowly learning that sometimes it’s easier to embrace it; surf the wave in, rather than fight the current.
I’ve also learned that while change, in all its mysterious forms, generally feels uncomfortable it brings with it unexpected positives too; new perspectives, benefits that were overlooked, things. Life always has a way of strangely working out for the best.
What’s one thing that change in your life has taught you?
