“Life doesn’t have a remote control. Get up and change it yourself.”
I firmly believe that change is good. That’s not the same as saying that comfort is bad. What I mean by my statement is that change precipitates growth, and growth inevitably presents opportunity. Whether we see it coming or not, life often leads us to a crossroads. Those who have the strength, support, and intestinal fortitude to absorb the changes are the ones who stand the greatest chance of enjoying long term success.
I’m a creature of habit, and I crave routine, but within that lifestyle I do my best to take every opportunity that comes my way, especially when it’s something new (read scary).
If not for shaking it up every now and then, I literally wouldn’t be where I am, or who I am today! From “conservative lil ice skater”, to “pink haired, world traveling cupcake”, all of the changes I’ve survived have brought me to where I am right now.
My new avatar is an example of my willingness to embrace change, take on challenges, and do as I please.
Do you love it?!?
