I generally love change; I often purposefully seek it out. Some changes that I’ve made in my life have included moving to a brand new city to be closer to someone I loved… and then moving back when I realized I needed to cut my losses. I also try to make small changes in my daily habits on a monthly basis.
I’m going to be changing my writing routine in May, and I’m not sure what that’s going to look like yet. I may continue posting every day, or I may skip a few days here and there. What I know for sure is, I want to stop focusing on a single topic each month here at Kitchen Sink Wisdom, because I’m finding it too limiting. From now my topics are likely going to be all over the map, although every now and then I may spend a few days on one particular theme.
Even though I love change, I always feel a bit lost during the transition. I hate giving up comfortable habits, even if they don’t serve me any longer.
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.
Do you resist or embrace change? Are there some kinds of changes that are easier for you to make than others? Do you know when it’s time to make a change, or do you need to be “hit over the head” with a situation before you’re willing to make a move? Are you happy with your default behavior?
