It’s the whirlwind of Life. Friends get married and move away. Co-workers get offered a better opportunity and move on. Relationships end for one reason or another.
There’s never a good time for life seasons to change and it’s often when we least expect it to happen.
These last few months have been a whirlwind blur for me. I’ve had relationships end and I’ve had new seasons start. I’ve experienced the beginnings of friendship and what it’s like to have more amazing people in my life than I’ve ever had before. I’ve watched as my own heart has changed and grown and I’ve been happy to leave the past in the past.
Whenever change strikes, I always question how I’ll handle it. Will I be okay? Will I miss whatever is changing?
Lately, there’s been more change than I can keep track of and honestly, I’m doing better than just okay. I say that for a few reasons, but here’s the main one.
I hate change.
There, I said it. I truly, genuinely despise change. The reason I’ve hated it so much in the past is because it’s usually not something I can control.
What I can control, is how I respond. And for the first time, possibly ever, I’m enjoying and welcoming the change.
Sometimes it takes change and being uncomfortable, to step out of your comfort zone and say, “I can’t change this, so I’m going to find a way to enjoy this season.”
I can’t say I love change yet, but I’m at least learning how to embrace it. It’s going to happen whether I like it or not.
The least I can do is find a way to enjoy it.
Cheers to change, friend.
