My idea of change is, let’s say, daunting. But, it doesn’t have to be. How the heart feels and the head thinks is what becomes.
Like attracts like. The same rule applies to free falling into something more beautifully capturing.
Let change open your eyes. It has the potential to bring new friendships, maintain old relationships, and provide an insight that you never fathomed about your own self.
I speak of this subject so highly because I once doubted my abilities in academics, family, friends, and any other hobbies that might hold my interest. People to me became subjective. Nothing had meaning, nothing held my attention but for a couple of days.
I was scared shitless. I didn’t have a clue what I was doing with my life. I would wake in the morning and felt plugged into some cheap computer to spit out results, facts. But deep down, I knew I didn’t belong there. My entire undergraduate career, volunteer hours, activities, everything was tied up into PT school. I made it through one of the hardest semesters, but everyday my outlook was percolated with external opportunities.
I just felt that it wasn’t in my heart. I reflected back on to what I dreamt of doing everyday and what I loved and wanted to keep challenging myself to do and it was always about psychology. It took me quite some time, but I finally realized my passion was the science of the mind. My fascination became clean and set.
At 22, waist high in debt, but I’ve arrived, and I haven’t looked back.
So don’t be scared, don’t let opinions slow you down, talk you out of your needs and dreams. The two come hand in hand. Where you feel at home, is all that matters at the end of the day.
And when you yourself arrive, you’ll taste sweet pink lemonade on your tongue and feel warm sunshine’s soft breathe on your skin. Life will become sweeter, as it was always meant to be.
