    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 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...

    Breaking Down The Last Wall

    As I have confessed earlier today I am making some changes. They are changes that are difficult for me. When you have made a comfort zone that hides some of who you are for whatever reasons they may be. It can take time.I still struggle with some of that line of feelings that...

    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 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 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...
