It's Time for a Change
Are you stuck in a rut? Doing the same old thing in the same old way? Saying no to things because you always say no to them? Wearing the same hairstyle, the same clothes...well you got the idea right? You never do anything new...so yes, you are stuck in a rut!
Sometimes we get too comfortable and we just keep on doing the same things even when we are bored with them and really would rather be doing something else.. It is just easier to keep doing the same old thing.. You know what I'm saying?
Just thinking about change makes you uneasy. You are in a relationship that no longer fits. You are on a job that no longer satisfies you. You eat the same foods and go to the same places. You never change. You never do anything new.
Not only do you order the same meal when you go out to eat, you never try anything new on the menu. Actually you go to the same places to eat most of the time. You don't want to try any place new. You even hang out with the same friends because it's just easier. Even though you no longer have anything in common with them, you won't make a change. Just know that. some friendships are meant to last a lifetime. And some are just there for a season. But, when that season is over...it is over. Once it is over, then the friendships tend to fade away. And it is okay. During that time you were a support system for each other. But even when you know the season is over...You won't change. You are actually scared to change.
You know it is time for a change when you look at your pictures from the past and realize that you have been wearing the same hairstyle, same makeup, same glasses, same lipstick etc. from 10-20 years ago.
So why do we continue to do the same thing when we know we need to make some changes? Well, making changes can be scary. It is the unknown aspect of it. We don't know what will happen when we make the change. So we stay safe in our comfort zones. And we remain content to just keep doing things the same way. The way we know. The way that we have always done them. The way that we are comfortable. Comfort zones can be dangerous. They paralyze you and keep you stuck.
So take a look at your life. What changes do you need to make? Is it time for a wardrobe adjustment? Is it time to change your circle of friends? Is it time to change your job? Is it time to change the activities you do? Is it time to really look at those relationships?
Start small. Make one little change in your life and then once you have become comfortable with that change, try another one.
Only you know what needs to be changed and only you can make those changes.
As always, it's your life and your time right now. Make the changes and continue to live your best life!
