School. Errands. Work. Family. Social events. Relationships. With everything that’s going in your life, do you ever feel like your life is running you, instead of the other way around? I know I do.
Luckily, life doesn’t have to be that way. If you’re feeling cramped, overwhelmed, or congested by the stressors of everyday life, it’s time to do something about it. That something is CHANGE.
It’s a scary word, I know.
But why are we so afraid of change? Well, it’s pretty simple, actually. Change causes stress. Think about it. Ending a relationship (or starting a new one), changing jobs, moving to a new country, or losing a loved one can all be difficult to deal with. And when we’re presented with difficulty, we become anxious, scared and stressed. That is why so many of us avoid change. We stay at a job we hate, remain in unhappy relationships or ignore health issues – all because we’re afraid of a feeling that hasn’t even happened yet.
It sounds pretty silly when I put it that way, doesn’t it?
As scary as it may be, making a change is the first step in taking control of your life. Whether it be small change like finally scheduling that doctor’s appointment, or a big change like quitting your job without having a new one lined up (WHOA!), progress is impossible without change.
Life is tough. But it’s also an adventure. Embrace the adventure by going after what’s most important to you. It could turn out great or it could turn out less-perfect than you’d hoped. But you’ll never know unless you try, right? And living with regret is NOT an option.

It only takes one person to change your life; YOU. Progress is impossible without change. And those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. Every new day is another chance to change your life. Don’t be afraid of change – it’s leading you to a new beginning.
