Changing Your Life…Is it worth it?
Ugh. You’ll get there eventually. Change. Maybe it’s a change in a relationship, career, or change related to your overall health. So you think about it to death, the pros and cons, the ifs. That’s when indecision sets in. And let me tell you, from experience, that is the worst part. But I also know this…you already know what you have to do. Yup…you do. And that’s what kinda sucks. Changing is hard, a little scary, and will probably require you to leave your comfort zone. You’re going to have to do that or forever wonder…”what if?” For me, that was scarier than the actual the change. What if I did nothing? That was a hell of a lot worse for me than taking the leap. A word of caution when faced with a major life change. There’s a reason for the saying “the grass isn’t always greener”. It took me years. This decision was going to affect many people. Was I being selfish? Should I have just sucked it up and just been grateful? At first the answer was yes. So I stayed. I read the “The Power of Positive Thinking” and “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind.” I started meditating. Anything to convince myself I was doing the right thing and trying to make it better. Maybe it was just me. Well it was…in a way. ME was actually trying to resurface again. That’s what had to change. I found ME again. When that happened…God, the Universe, whatever, stepped in. And then I knew. I knew exactly what I had to do and everything just flowed from there. It was not easy…far from it. But change never is. You have to fight, find courage, believe in yourself and have complete faith you are not alone.
So is it worth it? For me? Yes. I think that you will find almost everyone who has taken the leap has not regretted it. When you want to change something, it’s because you are probably unhappy, frustrated, maybe anxious and a little depressed. Your subconscious is talking to you. Those feelings will not go away unless you do something. You are no good to anyone like that, including yourself. Make the decision. It just takes one step. One step at a time in the direction you want to go, whatever that may be. Just decide! Decide to save the marriage or leave the marriage, take the new job or develop a better attitude about the one you have, lose the weight. And then do something about it. The Universe LOVES action, and if it’s the right one, things will start to happen. I’m not kidding. If it’s not in alignment, it will remain stagnant. You don’t have to worry. Everything is going to be ok…better than it was before. I had wise older woman tell me once, “It’s just a bump in the road dear.”
P.S. This is on my running playlist for whenever I need a kick in the ass. “Don’t let go, you got the music in you, one dance left, this world is gonna pull through.”
