Barely a month into 2019 and I can already see that this year promises to be the biggest year of change that I have experienced to date.
- I got engaged.
- I started a new job.
- My partner started a new job.
- We bought a house (okay….we’re buying a house).
Change can be a scary thing and to be honest I find it an uncomfortable experience which I make every effort to resist.
But why should change be scary?
Change interferes with autonomy and makes people feel that they have lost control of their environment and often our sense of self-determination is the first thing to go when faced with a period of uncertainty.
But how about looking at it as ‘New Beginnings’ instead of change? When moving forward means leaving the past behind. When the perfect symbol of ‘New Beginnings’ is a blank piece of paper (or blog in my case.)
I am excited to see what the rest of 2019 has in store!
