So change can feel overwhelming, right? Sometimes I refer to it as the "C" word like it is something bad that I shouldn't speak out loud. What I have come to realize though is that change is all in your perspective. If you think something is insurmountable, then it probably will be. If you believe that you can achieve, then the possibilities are endless. Oh things will still seem difficult along the way from time to time. But if you can persevere, then that is true strength. I'm not talking about perseverance as gritting it out or just getting by. There is so much personal growth from going through difficult circumstances rather than trying to escape them. Embrace the challenges. You can have confidence that they will make you stronger. We should learn from our past because it helps to shape the future. So when I look back over the years, I am amazed at how things have worked out. The changes that I thought were so devastating back then have led me to the place where I am now. And I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
