Changes and chances

Thursday, May 20, 2021

While we eagerly anticipate our new landscaping, I'm also hoping we don't cringe at what we end up with or wish we'd done this or that differently. I've always been hesitant to make changes and I've said often that I don't like change. Well, this time the change is of our making and I'm trying to change my attitude.

Also, a couple of phrases from old songs keep popping up in my head lately, and I think they're signs:

"Take a chance on me" by Abba and "I say a little prayer" by Dione Warwick.

I think I'm trying to tell myself to not be afraid or worried about what is happening. And to trust myself that the chances I'm taking with this project will bring happiness and joy. The only regret I'm looking forward to is the acknowledgement that we should have done this a long time ago!

Because COVID is still the name of the game, it's been easier to put off things and second-guess thoughts and decisions. I'm working toward changes ahead. It's a chance I'm ready to take.

    Change is good...say it 10 times and then perhaps you might start believing it. I do that all the time. Sometimes it works sometimes I need to say it another 10 times.

    2 great songs to have in your head...might be telling you something???
