Life is interesting, ironic, stressful, exhilarating, sad, tragic, joyful, peaceful, solemn, hectic, confusing, meaningful, hard, rewarding, a bitch, a beach, fucked up and beautiful! Life is all of these things (and more) all at once. Sometimes life is hard to live, sometimes it’s easy, sometimes you face situations that you think you will never make it through… But you do. You wake up the next day, you get out of bed and you live! And soon, you move on. You make it through things that you thought at one time you could never make it through.
Life changes at the drop of a hat. We get so used to our little routines, we get comfortable with the way things are… The familiarity of predictability and stability, so when things change we become scared. We don’t know this new existence… How will we deal with these new scenarios? How will we survive when we are out of our element? The fear gets a hold of us, sometimes makes us paralyzed… But you know what, it still doesn’t change the fact that things will change! If there is one thing that you can count on in this life it is that things will change.
So since we know that change is inevitable and that it is all we can really count on, why are we so resistant to it? Is it fear… Is it stubbornness… Is it laziness? How can we truly be happy with change when we have these fears and an unwillingness to embrace it?
I have discovered that embracing change, looking at it with eyes that are unafraid and living with a willingness to roll with the punches, makes things much easier. Change is not a bad thing, it never is… When change happens, people learn, people grow, and people mature. It is perhaps one of the things in life that we can learn from most. I find peace in the fact that I don’t know what’s gonna happen tomorrow, I don’t know what’s gonna happen the day after tomorrow… And you know what? I don’t want to.
