“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” (Steve Jobs)
While I’ve always found change a challenge, I have come to an epiphany (finally! after fighting most change that has left me with the desire to kick, scream and wish it all away):
Life is SO interesting because of the very thing that makes it interesting—the unexpected life.
So whether you’re in a “lull” and enjoying days of relative peace and comfort, or if you’re in the midst of a full blown storm of adversity, I’ve learned great growth comes from change. So I’m learning to embrace it a bit more in my own life and find myself the better for it.
Don’t be afraid of it.
Remember, great things come from it. (Just keep telling yourself that as you live and face the challenges of an unexpected life.)
And see what happens in your life as you do.
I’m about to.
Big change is coming to the former Andrea Merriman.
