|Remember when this place looked like this? Change is good. HAH|
They say a change is as good as a holiday but I have a lot of both going on right now! Not only will I be moving house (and areas, goodbye my beautiful HP *sob*) in 2 weeks time, my role at work is about to change, we have a new person just added to our team, I've got two weeks holidays over Christmas and then before I know it I'll be off the US for a month for one of my most life changing experiences yet. Phew! It's hard to keep up.
I am usually pretty resistant to change. Without sounding too OCD, a simple change to my regular routine can sometimes really throw me off and freak me out. What can I say, I'm a creature of habit and if those habits get interrupted or altered I can get a little frazzled. In saying that, I'm going to take a big deep breath and say...I am glad so much is changing.
Woah. There. Can't believe I just said that. So not like me. BUT. I am telling myself, it is all good things. It all means growth and new experiences and excitement and unknowns. It means confronting my own preconceived notions of how I think things should be and showing me just how strong and resilient and calm and on top of things I can be. It is showing me just how capable I am.
Lets face it, there are FAR worse changes I could be facing. For them all to be either positive or only minimally challenging is a massive blessing. The timing is also a blessing. Imagine if I'd have to move right before or even heaven forbid DURING the month I'm away in the US!? So as The ReChords and my front left forearm say, coulda been worse.
I am actually looking forward to the changes. This surprises even myself. But they will just shake things up a bit. Make everything old new again. Allow me to declutter and simplify my life a little. It's all good. I'm excited to see how everything pans out. In saying that, the next couple of weeks are going to get a little crazy with packing and moving and organising things and continuing to prepare all our documentation for the US and gearing up for Christmas and all that fun stuff.
I'll need my 2 weeks Christmas holidays to just catch my breath! How do you deal with change?
