Change is Good BUT . . .

Change is Good BUT . . .

I feel like I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again. I’m not apprehensive to change but I’m not exactly welcoming to it either. Sometimes I struggle to adjust and I know I’m not the only person who’s like that. There’s a reason why it’s called the comfort zone . . . it’s comfortable.

Lots of changes are on the horizon for me and while I’m extremely grateful and thanking God for the blessings. Sadness, nervousness and worry entwine and form a tight knot in my stomach and mind.

Being an overthinker seems to put me in mental spaces I’d just prefer not to be in. My mind is quick to think, how will you handle this change? How is it going to affect you? What about your relationship and friendships, will they be affected?

My mind asks questions I don’t even have or know the answer for. I’m stressing about the unknown, driving myself up a wall over something I won’t know until I experience. It’s madness if you ask me and I don’t know why I put myself through it.

Last week, I handled things a lot better than I expected as it pertains to changes. I limited my expectations, decided to dip my toe in the water before saying its cold and it wasn’t half bad. My bestfriend told me about this Will Smith wall analogy. He said don’t focus on the wall instead take everything brick by brick. If your focus is on the wall, you’ll never be finish because you’ll be worried about all the unfinished work. Instead, focus on laying brick by brick, it’ll be easier. Before you know it, the wall will be finish.

It’s a good analogy that has stuck with me for obvious reasons. I’m letting change happen (couldn’t stop it even if I wanted to). I’m trying to remain optimistic and chanting positive energy through it all. There will be uncomfortable moments but that’s where the growth happens right? Let’s see how it goes.

Change is painful, but nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.
