    Change Can Sometimes Be Very Scary ...

      ... but I just don't let it get to me ... I convince myself that that hollow feeling in the pit of my stomach is not fear, it's excitement ... anticipation of great new things to come ... another chance at a new beginning ... then I put on my nicest business suit, and go...

    Change For The Better

    I honestly want to change. But the hurts of past breakup still haunt me. The pain is only a month old. But it was a three year battle. How did I truly think I could make him change? If I wasn't willing to do the same myself. My biggest change needs to come from within myself. To...

    With Each Progression

    Some of the changes in my life I have involuntarily gone under; I have questioned why they are happening, yet each has led me on a different path, has elevated me from the depths that I did not recognise myself within.  I tend to like to have different things going on in my...

    I feel like I'm not living life

    unless I see changes... I don't like when things become routine and comfortable... I like the challenge of new experiences...not that I don't miss old familiar things but I think it's better to appreciate their absence than not even seeing (taking for granted) them because it's...

    Thrown Away

    About at the end of oktober I met someone pretty awesome online. We kind of had similar interests and sense of humour and it kicked of pretty fast. We were always talking deep into the night, about anything from remotely stupid to pretty deep and interesting. She herself told and...

    Difficult Yes, Scary Yes, Good Indeed!

    Change is a good thing indeed if you want it that is.  But you have to go out and get it, make it happen.  Because no one is going to do it for you.  It can be difficult, scary, bad, and really good. Sounds confusing because it is.  But if you want it and you seek it it will...

    Change Can Equal Stress...

    I think for many people change means stress... It may be a simple way to look at it, but change, the unknown, and where life is going can mean stress.... But, it can also mean new friends and new opportunity.

    Change Never Ends

    My life changed in a heartbeat when you loost the one you love or people close by you. Goes to show life is short. You have to change every day as something changes....With difficulty and change you grow in life.

    Change Is Good

    I like change, only the good kind (lol).  It's good, if nothing ever changed, life would be boring.  Why someone is afraid of something different is beyond me - to positively accept the change is to understand what is happening.
