Change is difficult for most people, and I'm no exception. Hey I'm a Taurus and I like my life to be orderly and stable. But lately, a lot of sudden changes have happened that have helped remind me to embrace change and see the good things it brings with it too.
The first bombshell struck a couple of weeks ago with an especially nasty computer virus on my PC. I can usually fix this stuff myself, but this time I needed to call in the professionals. So I was forced to move over to my backup computer, an iMac, and start getting used to a new way of doing things. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to switch to the Mac and to get up an running so quickly. And on the plus side, the Mac is less prone to those nasty viruses. Another bonus!
The next change was an unexpected office move at work. I was perfectly comfortable in my old office, but the move netted me new furniture, a bigger monitor and a printer and helped me get rid of all the paper clutter that had accumulated over the years. Wow! Change is Good!
In the past, I've often looked at change as the enemy, but when I remember to embrace it and focus on the good things it brings too, I'm amazed at how much better my life can be. So here's to change and to shaking things up a little. My lesson learned: You don't have to wait until change finds you, you can go looking for it any time you want to make your life so much better.
