They say change is the only constant we have in our lives and this statement couldn’t prove to be more accurate in my life. The funny thing is that growing up with a vast amount of change has almost allowed me to crave it deeply. Not only am I able to easily adapt to most situations, but I actually find myself seeking out ways to consistently change how things are in my life. I attribute this to the following things that have happened since I was born:
– Moving more than 12 times
– Living in a total of 6 cities and 4 states
– Overcoming addiction
– Getting laid off from my first full- time job only 8 months after starting and having to find a new career
I used to think that craving change was a bad thing, and it might have been before. That’s because I didn’t allow myself to enjoy life in the present. I was always looking for the next great thing and day dreaming about how green the grass was on the other side. This is NO way to live, trust me…
Now things are different and I am so thankful. I still desire change just as much as I used to but now I make sure to live my present life to the fullest. In fact, I try to live each experience out so fully that I practically NEED change so things don’t get boring. This is one reason I left my corporate job so I could continue experiencing each day to the absolute fullest. So I could spend my precious time and energy on things that light up my heart. I believe we all deserve this type of lifestyle. Don’t you?
If you are currently living a life that doesn’t light you up it’s okay to dream about a better life. But I urge you to not just dream about it. Don’t just think of what’s possible for you. Do something about it. Set time aside each day to work towards that dream lifestyle and before you know it you will actually be living the way you desire.
That’s all it takes is a little time, some ambition and the ability to think anything is possible. I promise.
P.S. I want to let you know that I am moving to Phoenix this week so make that a total of 13 moves, 7 cities and 5 states all before my 28th birthday 😛
