|Look at all this beautiful organization. |
Do I sometimes open my closet doors
just to stare? Yes. Yes I do.
I’ve been making a lot of changes in my life.
From cleaning my closet (truly a masterpiece of color-coded perfection), to a new career (I’m bursting to share that news very soon), to carefully choosing my friends (with some unfortunate goodbyes).
Thankfully, change is easy, painless, and lots of fun.
Said no one ever.
Changes are challenging.
And I’m no stranger to life modifications (thank you, thesaurus). My philosophy has been, hey, that’s not working for me, so let’s:
Get a new job!
Leave that relationship!
Not all of those choices were good decisions. The one thing they did have in common: they were hard. And I liked to complain about just how hard they were.
I’m seeing things differently now. One of the most impactful adjustments I’ve made is changing my perspective. Because everything that’s led me to this exact moment in my life is due to the growth I’ve experienced through change.
So maybe, while change can still be extremely challenging, I can find joy in the process.
Look, I will never downplay my downright horrific cross-country move with my giant dog kennel and 3 bursting suitcases all by myself. But maybe I can embrace it. Revel in it. Get all down and dirty in it.
And see change for what it truly is: Opportunity. Growth. Progress.
Very often a change of self is needed more than a change of scene. – AC Benson
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:2
