I am not the same soul I once was. A lot has changed. A lot had to change. So you shouldn’t expect out of me what I embodied in the past for that part of me no longer exists.
Love this! So many people don’t understand that life brings about so many things that change us to the core as a human beings. When a person changes or moves on, too often people take things personally when in fact…it has nothing to do with anyone but the person themselves. As people we evolve, we MUST evolve in order to adjust to the changes that go on daily in the universe and in our lives. This usually happens at a reasonable pace that we are able to adjust to. For some though, change comes about in ways that knock us down so hard it’s difficult not only to get back up but also to comprehend.
For me…the last 4 years have brought about so much change to my life that I had no choice but to adjust who I was. I fought it so hard in the beginning wanting so badly for things to stay the same but they simply were NOT. I lost my baby, almost lost my life, I lost the ability to have any more children and then….I lost my dad. How can life possibly be the same. How can my needs be the same in any way. They simply cannot. I am a different person to the core. My values, my beliefs, my needs and wants out of life have been completely altered . Along with this comes change in who we surround ourselves with, change in what we feel is an appropriate career/job for us. Change in what we enjoy doing, basically, change in every single faction in our lives and finally…..I understand that…it’s OKAY!
It’s okay to not want the same things I wanted before because different things bring me joy now. It’s okay to not need the job I had before because my priorities and needs have altered now. It’s okay to have connected with new people because our paths have similarities where we are able to help one another and it’s okay to be different.
Follow your heart and what makes you happy. We are creatures of habit however, we need to learn to adjust along with our lives and our circumstances in order to remain happy. So many people are stuck in the past and in the “what was” when they can be flying high into the future and the possibilities of “what can be”.
With that…I hope you have a wonderful day full of love, happiness, joy and above all…change! Change is a great thing. It means we are moving forward and, in the end, it’s all about perspective. It’s not what you see, it’s how you look at it!
