Sometimes you just need to sit down, reflect, and decide what needs to be changed. That’s a hard process. Sometimes it is every gut-wrenching, because change isn’t easy for most of us. Please don’t tell me you are one that thrives in an every-changing environment! I’ll be so jealous.
As I’ve reflected on my steps ahead for 2012, a few things became clear with the help of mentors and leaders. One of the many changes that needed to happen was my bloggy home. I’ve drug my feet. I’ve procrastinated. I didn’t want to move, but here I am right in the process of moving. (I hope you’ll move with me and like the new me, follow, and subscribe — please)
This blog change is in the process. This change will be ever on-going. As with so many other areas of our lives. Change will always be hard, whether it is as insignificant as changing a bloggy home, to changing an attitude, to dropping an old habit, to getting up and exercising. Change hurts temporarily, but empowers and strengthens us for the future.
Have you made a recent change lately? Was it a scary process for you?
I’m seeing so clearly that change is an uncomfortable feeling. The comfort zone is gone. The old habits don’t want to die. The new habits struggle to spring forth and it feels like there is a battle within.
If you need a change today, I hope you’ll step out and join me in making changes in 2012. Yes, some changes will be personal, some financial, some physical, and some will seem insignificant at the moment (like a bloggy change) but I challenge you to step out and conquer new territory and forge ahead to new heights.
When you need a change — it’s time to change!
