What I Know For Sure...Again

Life has a funny way of working out. I think the best way to describe it is that whole box of chocolates theory. It's kinda but it's true: you really don't know what you're going to get. Everything that you wanted to happen probably didn't pan out that way. You probably received more unexpected experiences than expected ones. Plans? Forget about it. They probably didn't go the way they were supposed to. But that's life for you. It never goes the way it's supposed to.

What I know for sure at officially 25 years old is that the only constant thing in life is change. We're constantly moving. We're constantly changing course. We're constantly seeking fulfillment one way or another. Nothing in life stays the same forever. Not our friends, not our jobs, hell not even our families. The only true guarantee in life is death. Everything in between is up for debate.

Because change is constant, I believe that we should embrace change. Be honest, do you want to be where you are right now in this moment forever? I sure don't. Change can lead to beautiful destinations. Change can provide life lessons. Change can be an amazing journey if you allow it to be. 

I used to be on the fence about change. I was somewhere between wanting something different but not wanting to move my feet. I resisted change a lot. Change comes with much unknown territory. I think we sometimes resist change because we do not know what to expect. Is this change really going to be for the better or should I just stay where I am and deal with what I have? We all have a desire to explore the unknown to some degree but it would be more helpful if we knew what that unknown held. But most times we don't. And even if we do know what some of the changes that's going to occur, there's still that little bit that will catch us off guard and we will have to roll with the punches.

These days I'm all about change. Maybe because I'm finally tired of going in circles. I want something different. I want more out of life. But in order for me to have that something has to change. I need to embrace change. I'm not sure what these changes will bring but it has to be better than where I am right now. I am a little optimistic about the future because I know my life will change and it will do so whether I want it to or not. So I might as well, embrace it and prepare for it. 

I don't know what the future holds but what I do know is that I'm ready for it. Are you?
