Change. We have a love-hate relationship with that word. Change is a scary thing. But it’s also necessary. I mean, think about it. If we didn’t have change, our lives would stay the exact same, there’d be nothing new, we’d have nothing to look forward to, and that’d just be boring.
I was thinking about this all while lying in bed Saturday morning. My life has changed a lot within the past year. I’ve learned a lot, cried a lot, been scared a lot, and have been challenged a lot. But I’ve also grown a lot. Thinking about what’s ahead, I know there’s more change in my future.
I get sad thinking about leaving my childhood bedroom I’ve created so many memories in. I get sad thinking about how my family may not have our weekly pizza night each Saturday, or my mom and I’s Sunday grocery shopping dates.
But then I really think about it, and realize it can’t stay the same forever. We have to continue to grow and evolve. We have to create new memories and traditions. And thinking about those is exciting. And I couldn’t be more excited.
I don’t really know what I’m trying to say in this post and things may have been all over the place, but I guess what I’m saying is to just enjoy the now, because someday it’s going to just be a memory. Live and enjoy what’s happening right now.
I’ll leave you with this, which seemed pretty fitting to me.
