Getting Back to Normal
November 9, 2014
I recently moved. You know how fun that can be. But there’s one thing I love about moving, and that’s change. Some people hate change. They are unnerved by it. I love it and let me tell you why. It energizes me. It brings me hope for a brighter tomorrow. Change allows me to be the innovative, creative person I am. It reminds me almost every day that if I don’t like something, I can change it.
Since the move, my friends, both old and new, have all been asking me ‘Are you back to normal yet?’ or ‘Are you getting settled?’
I find myself hesitating before I answer. It’s not that I’m not happy where I am. It’s wonderful here! I am nestled in the North Georgia mountains and have an office/studio space that feels like it’s up in the tree tops. What’s not to like??
But here’s the deal. I’m not sure I want to be ‘settled’. And I’m quite sure I don’t want everything back to ‘normal’. After all, why move if you’re just going to burrow in and make everything the same as it was in your old place. That’s one of the main reasons I move – to unsettle everything, to jostle the energy in my life just enough for new insights and new adventures.
So the next time it’s time for change, think about all the possibilities. How could you make that change to better suit you, to better suit those you love? Then move forward and make an awesome change!
