Change is IMPORTANT (#17)

After some time away from my apartment at UMass, it was important that I made some changes. My routines for Fall semester worked for all intensive purposes then, but there’s no guarantee it works now. I rearranged my closet and moved around some tables. I’m not sure if I entirely like the changes yet or if they are more conducive to my daily routine but I felt tremendously better about work tomorrow and starting my Spring semester. If everything stayed the same, that would mean I’m not growing and I’m not learning. Patience is our key to the best this life has to offer. That has to apply to change too. Change is all around us and sometimes we wish things would just get better right away or fast forward to the point when it does.

Who Moved My Cheese is one of my all-time favorite books for many reasons but one of them is how it describes change. I suggest reading this Spencer Johnson classic and apply it to your own life.

So here comes 2018, head on. Change is all around us, it just depends on how we’re going to react.
