Onwards and Upwards, Baybeeeee....

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Life can be so funny sometimes. Just when you think you are on the path of all paths, the way of life that seems to be the only way it's supposed to be lived, you get thrown for a loop and suddenly ... you have to change. For me change has been a welcome part of life, until it becomes something that I "have" to do. I love the kind of change that I choose to make because, well it's just the better choice in my mind. But when I'm given a situation that clearly is not benefiting me, or helping me grow, yet it's something that is very familiar and almost a habit to me and I realize that this particular path is actually hurting me more than I'm even realizing, then I learn to become so grateful for being forced into changing.

Giving up the old, familiar, habitual routines in life can be so rough. Shocking least for me. It puts me in a new place that I don't know if I like and I don't know how much I'm going to miss the old ways and I don't know what will happen with the "new" way of living...etc, etc. In the end, I experience a new way of living and normally it's better than the way I was living before. That's because the old way helped me grow into a healthier person, and now it's time to grow even more because I'm stronger, wiser, healthier than ever...and when you get to that point, all you can do is go up.

So here I go. I've embraced the necessary changes that I've decided are very much needed in my life right now. These changes alter the way I've lived my life for quite a while now. These things no longer benefit me in any way, they are actually hurting me now and causing unnecessary pain that no one needs to be enduring.

As my love likes to say, onwards and upwards, baybeeeee...
