When I was first little the thought of that scared me. We all crave the constant safe things in life, especially when we are young.
I was discussing with Sterling over lunch today, how I used to love and crave change.
I used to move almost every month. I moved 9 times in two years! The thought of change didn't scare me one bit. Then I moved back to Utah. I got a job, and decorations in my house, and lots of clothes and a safe, warm house. And I am safe and comfortable. There is nothing wrong with this. This is a good thing, I know it is... But, there is a part of me that wants to give it up. Give away my clothes and my decorations and find the road again.
The bad news: nothing is permanent.
The good news: nothing is permanent.
And how beautiful is that?
Regardless of how filthy our pasts have been, our futures are spotless. A blank canvas. There is no need to start a new day with the dirty canvas of yesterday. There is no need to look back unless it's a good view. The best way for us to get past our troubles is to look forward onto the future with bright eyes. Focus on the now, and make it a beautiful place that our future selves will thank us for.
Every morning we wake up, is the first day of the rest of our lives.
Because the world IS changing. It's constantly changing..
It's times like this that I like to remember I am NOT trapped in a cycle or a place. (I've been struggling with this one!) We all have doubts that make us feel trapped at times. But, if you doubt your ability to make big decisions, you are trapping yourself. It's like a bird in a cage with perfectly good wings, but as a bird sits in a cage, it forgets how to use those wings until the muscles become weak. The bird forgets to fly. We need to stretch our wings slowly. Take a bit of time, and remember to fly.
