Change is good.
Words I never thought I’d say.
I’m not saying I am averse to change, I’m saying just the thought of change – of any kind – used to give me the heebie-jeebies.
Routine is predictable. Routine feels good. Routine is a nice warm blanket and a cup of hot cocoa.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not resistant to all change. Sometimes just the switch from Raisin Bran to Multi-Grain Cheerios is enough to make me want to set the world on fire.
A little spark of something different is good.
Change takes you out of your comfort zone and makes your body buzz with excitement.
That’s what was so great about being a student after all these years. Nothing stays the same.
Each semester I experienced new classes, taught by new teachers, surrounded by new students.
It felt strange, but I had to roll with it. And I finally got a little more comfortable with the constant change.
Although, I loved going back to school, I am ready for a change. Which is a good thing, because – ready or not – change is coming my way. I mean, it’s not like USC will let me stay there forever, right? RIGHT?
Then again, I could always get a Ph.d.
If my husband is reading this – I’m just kidding! (Sort of.)
But seriously, having time to just breathe, think or bake cookies sounds heavenly to me now, as I drag my weary body towards the finish line.
Rest sounds pretty damn good right now, too.
I can hardly wrap my head around how fast this last year went, now that graduation is almost here. And I am beginning to get excited about all the free time I will have.
My list of things I need and want to do is growing. And I’m looking forward to the thrill of crossing items off as they get done.
Some things on my long list?
Weed-wacking my poor neglected eyebrows. The humbling experience of shopping for bras. Pilates-ing my squishy body.
The list goes on and on.
So cheers to new things!
Change will be good.
