Are you scared of change?

Are you scared of change? I know I am. I like stability. I like knowing what my day is going to consist of. I’m not in a robot like state everyday but my life is pretty routine and I like it 🙂 BUT, I’ve become complacent. At least with work. It’s comfortable, but it’s no longer serving a purpose for me. I’m writing in past tense because after eight years I am no longer there. I started a new job this past Tuesday. Talk about a complete 360.

It’s the same line of work. But imagine going from top dog to low dog…heck I’m not even a dog yet, lol. Lets just say I have no pool. I’m a newbie trying not to ruffle anyone’s feather. I don’t want a super demanding job because I do so much outside of work. But a demanding job is what I have now 😭

It’s a challenge. The first week was really hard for me. I am completely out of my comfort zone. By the third day I was missing my girls so much (the ones I previously worked with). I became a bit emotional. I can see why people don’t run towards change. People stay stagnate because it’s easy. I mean who wants hard? It’s just not natural.

The day I walked into my supervisor’s office and said I’m leaving was a life changing moment. I mean 8 years is a long time! LOL I was scared. Really, really scared. But the truth is I needed the change. I wanted the change. I was feeling very unsatisfied for a really long time there. But still, change is scary. You don’t know what’s on the other side of the door. Me being me, that freaked the shit out of me. And me being me, I’m not one to settle. I am not someone who will choose being content over amazing.

So, this is a challenge that I welcome. Opposition is growth and I’m not a tree ☺ Jim Rohn metaphor.

There’s a lot to learn and the job is very fast paced. I will succeed because there is no other alternative for me. I’ve done the work to make the change that I desired and faced all my fears. Now it’s just a matter of having patience with myself. It’s all about preparing and planing now. Mentally and physically. Get my mind right and the rest that I need to be at the top of my game.

Let me ask you again…are you scared of change? I’m sure our answer is still the same and that’s a YES! Haha That’s OK though. Most people are afraid of change. I just choose not to let fear take over my life, my happiness. I hope you don’t either. I mean what’s the worst that can happen? A lot, lol. But regardless everything will be OK just as long as we’re given another day to try again. It’s worth it, happiness is worth it. I’m referring to all aspects in your life. Dreams, career, family, love…all of it. I’m in another situation where I think I let fear get the best of me…or is it pride? Probably both, lol. And I’m paying for it now. But, I’ve learned…my lesson. I won’t make that mistake again. So hey, face your fears. Take a chance. Never settle, go after what you want. It may blow up in your face, but regret feels worst.

Anyways, have a great week ahead and make some moves 😎😁

About me…let’s see….I would say I am a TRUE Virgo. If you knew me, then you would so agree. There are quite a few things I care deeply about. Off the top of my head, I would say with much passion, my family, friends, the environment and world peace. Oh and animals. Can't forget them. I think I love animals more than most humans, lol. I believe it’s important to surround yourself with good people. Be picky with who you let in your circle. The environment, the earth does not belong to us. We are merely just visiting for a period of time. So lets no abuse it. World peace, that’s a hard one. It’s not a perfect world, but wouldn't it be wonderful if every child, women and man were safe? We can’t change the world and every single soul living on earth. But one person can make a great difference in the surroundings in which they live. Wouldn't you agree? Let’s not forget what fuels my soul, music. It speaks for me when I can’t. It expresses my feelings when I am unaware of what they are. It has a way of lifting my spirits when I am down. It has this magical power that is able to touch my heart with just lyrics alone. I wouldn't know what I would do without it. Poetry, I love poetry. In all forms...written or spoken.

Any thoughts?
