Embracing ChangeEmbracing change has never been one of my strong points. Can’t everything just stay the same?

Well, not really. Change is a part of life. I wouldn’t go back to where I was in my 20 years ago, 30 years ago or more. I wouldn’t want to be 25 again. Why? Because the changes in my life have made it so much better than I ever could have imagined.

At 25, newly divorced, I couldn’t image what my life would be like. It was a very scary time for me as a single mom of two young boys. I had to find a job and I had no particular skills. I did find a job that led to a 19 year career in which I did very well. That career boosted my confidence in my abilities in ways I couldn’t have imagined. I wondered if I’d ever find the “right” man. That happened too and again, changed my life in many wonderful ways over the years.

30 years ago we moved from Los Angeles to the Bay Area. It was a change I really wanted. I was embracing change in that instance and it was still hard. I left so much behind and it took me at least two years to really adjust and feel like I was “home.”

Now I’m embracing change again. We didn’t just move from one end of the state to another but from one side of the country to the other. We’ve been in our new home for a week. Our things have not yet arrived from California so in many ways, it doesn’t feel like home yet. But I’m here with my husband and my dog and they are what home is anyway.

People couldn’t be nicer in my new home state. Everyone is so friendly and kind. I’m not 4o years old like I was when I moved to the Bay Area. I thought that might make it harder for me but I’m not so sure. I have the benefit of retrospect – many years to look back on. I can see that change has been good for me in so many ways. I can see that it is possible to adjust to a new area, a new home.

So I’m embracing change for sure. This change is going to be amazing.
