    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.
