Change is good. Even if you think that it is bad you often find out it was just the change you need to transition into a better situation. Change can facilitate growth. I know that I am personally fearful of change but in retrospect it has always been a lesson in life. I had a rough patch that lasted about 3 years. I don’t like to talk about it but at the time I could not fathom anything getting better. It brought out the worst in me at that time. Then I made a decision for change. It wasn’t easy to do. No one wants to give up on something that you worked so hard on for so long but it was necessary to move forward with the next chapter of my life.
It was a scary. I had no idea what I had gotten myself into. At times there was regret followed by the reassurance in my heart that I had done the right thing. Life as a single mother was terrifying. Luckily the father of my children knew this change was also necessary for us both to grow and change for the better. We supported each other in co-parenting and it made the the time less daunting. I have my moments but that fear of change is starting to transform into excitement for the future.
I am about to make a huge life change by moving into a beautiful home with my partner. He has helped me through my topsy turvy transitional time. I could not be happier to have a fresh start and have the life I have always wanted. He encourages me to write because he knows it is one of the things that I am passionate about. He sends me links to freelancing sites. He sits through my crazy story ideas and never shoots me down. He makes me not fear the leap into writing as a career. He teaches me that change continues to be good.
Once I settle in after the move, I will be working on the next big change in my life and that is starting that writing career. I am nervous about it but I know that any negativity that comes from exploring it will only lead me to growth in my life as a person. I want to teach my girls to go after their dreams. I want them to leap for them wholeheartedly. I want them not to fear the fall but try to fly. Even if they don’t succeed, they will learn what it was like to try and continue to not fear what may never happen.
