Its funny how things come into our life and present themselves. Opportunity, fear, joy and sadness. All major players. All emotions and events we are guaranteed to experience. But when they come; when they “present” themselves we are either surprised, nervous or doubtful. You would think by now we would have a handle on such things. Apparently not. Of course I am just talking about me, not everyone. One thing I’ve learned (the hard way) through this blog is everyone is different. Everyone experiences events and presentations completely differently.
Maybe when life presents you with something, you’re ready, set and good to go, but for me its always been the exact opposite. I’ve never been good at change. Even good change. I’ve never been a change person. But change has also taught me that change is good. A presentation that now, is still difficult but a little easier.
Today I realized something. The last 4 years for me have been mammoth in scale of change. I’ve moved from CT to GA. Switched careers, Lindsey and I had another child and bought a home. Trickle in some tiny bits if change here and there and thats it. That’s our past 4 years in a nutshell. Change is part of life. I get that now.
Change is a presentation in itself and no one is good at unexpected opportunities, bad news, etc. We all are a working project. That comforted me. Comfort in numbers I guess. But, if the past has taught me anything it should blinking in bright lights somewhere. I should welcome change. It produces growth and wisdom. 2 characteristics I never really care much for, until change presents itself.
