I've never been a big fan of change. I'm of the thinking that if things are cruising along smoothly, let's just leave well enough alone.
But, is there ever really substantial growth with no change? I'm thinking the answer to that question is a big fat NO.
So, big changes for me are on the horizon. Changes that really in actuality terrify me. Changes that will affect my future and prompt me to think outside the box.
I'm the type of girl who wants to know every detail before I move forward with a decision. In this case, I have minimal details. I don't have all the answers to the many questions rolling around in my mind. I mean, these changes are going to affect not just me but also my son.
I can say in the midst of all the uncertainty and mulling through all the questions, I am proud that I even have this opportunity to change. An opportunity to really grow. An opportunity to show my son that it's never to late to accomplish big goals.
It's so easy to stay the same. I think especially as a single parent, I embraced the mundane day to day activities. It brought a sense of security. What can possibly be good about rocking the boat of stability?
Opportunities above and beyond my expectations...
Want to go back to school? Find a way
Want to change careers? Go for it
Want to move? Let's do it
Want to take you kids on vacation? Start saving
Want to lose weight? Nothing is stopping you
There's always a way to make those big goals happen. It's probably going to take work. It's probably going to push you out of your comfort zone. Think about the rewards though. Think about the look of pride on your kids faces when they see you achieving big things.
Now go and make a change...
