If you really know me than you would know that I HATE change.
Ask my parents or my husband. I despise change. It it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This is for ALL aspects of my life.
However, life brings us changes throughout our life, some bigger than others and turns our life upside down. We go into denial because we hate change. We don’t want it to be true or accept it.
We tend to look at change as negative. I mean our life was just flipped upside down, thrown against the wall and stomped on so why wouldn’t we?
It is human nature to look at change as the worst thing possible and to believe that you will never get through it. We wish everyday that we could back in time to appreciate what might be gone a little more or do things differently. Fear is our personal reaction to changing circumstances within our lives, and we CAN change our reaction of fear, instead of seeing it as a challenge to overcome. . . see it as an opportunity to GROW.
We ALL have been there. Some more than others. And if you haven’t been there yet, you will unfortunately. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. It’s called life. (I’m sorry, I am realist.)
When changes occur in our lives there is a reason. It may take some of us A LOT longer to understand the reason, but you will get there. . .eventually. I promise.
You WILL find the reason. You WILL grow from the change. You WILL discover how strong your truly are.
There are SO many people in your life that are relying on YOU. They need YOUR strength and passion within their lives.
Take the time to embrace the change and find your purpose.
THIS is my change that I am embracing.
I HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE!
Watching both my physical and mental transition in the mirror over the past 3 and 1/2 years has been a journey in itself. I have gone from grieving the loss of my hair and not being able to look at myself in the mirror to being “comfortable” with what I see to seeing myself to now not being able to imagine myself any other way. THIS is my new normal. I am now okay (and sort of liking) what I see in the mirror. It has been a bumpy road but I have taken the path towards ME and YOU can AND need to do the same!
