Embracing Change Today

I’m writing this post from my new office. (Don’t worry; I’m on a break.) My desk is in an office in the corner of a government building, but I don’t mind. It’s just so weird to have a desk after so many years of doing everything from home or the coffee shop.

Change is scary, but I I think I like this one. It feels good to do things differently, and it’s not as scary as I thought. I’m not sure why I dread things at times that end up being good for me, but I’m guilty of that sometimes.

In this case I’m just really thankful for the opportunity, and I’m looking forward to creating some good habits while I’m here.  I packed my lunch and snacks: salad with roasted chicken, Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, and pretzel thins with a Laughing Cow wedge. I also brought my Nalgene that I plan to fill a few times a day while I’m here. 

Sometimes change isn’t as horrible as I worry that it will be, and on days like today I’m thankful for that.

    Awesome! Hey, I don’t have your email address but I wanted you to know that I didn’t mean to discourage you from posting religious posts the other day. I have a blog dedicated to faith, hope and inspiration. My comment may have come across as rude. It wasn’t intended that way. I just wanted to share my own opinion. Keep moving forward and please keep posting. And send me your email address please. Ross

    Glad to hear that you are liking your new office space Kenlie! I know that I’m guilty of fearing change myself. I described to you in one of my personal messages to you one big change that I am currently involved in. Another huge change that I am currently involved in, which I don’t mind speaking about publicly is the prospect of moving up in my organization. At first I was really terrified to try and make this shift because I wanted to stay in my “comfort zone”; that familiarity that, while it keeps me from becoming stressed out about change, by staying in it, I will never grow. And to grow sometimes means stepping out of our comfort zones and embracing that change. In fact, most of the time, growing more than likely does mean that we will have to step out of our comfort zones.
    And you feel so much better after you’ve made that decision to change and like you said, you find out later that it’s not nearly as bad as you first thought. It’s natural to feel a bit nervous or even just plain scared when thinking of a change that will take place. But being someone who has had to adjust to many changes in life, I can honestly say that no matter how many times I’ve spent worrying about those changes, they have always managed to work out for my benefit.
    Congrats on your new change Kenlie! I am happy for you.
