Isn’t it incredible how much can change in a year?
How close you can become with people who just came to your life. And how you can become strangers with people whom you shared your deepest scars with.
Not only things around you, but how much you, yourself, changes. How different your goals, dreams and wishes are from a year ago.
Although making me feel like there is nothing permanent to hold on in my life, I also know that change absolutely normal. Because we are all human. Because we are shaped by our experiences. Because we make mistakes, and learn. Because we get hurt, and heal.
Because change – is inevitable.
Change is nothing to be afraid of. And it is never good to hold too close on things that will not last a long time anyways. Thoughts that will differ, people who will leave…
If you ask me, I’d say be grateful for this opportunity. How wonderful it is that we are growing, learning, exploring and getting know to ourselves better.
Try to observe the change, the nature of it. See if you can catch patterns. Where you are inclined to go, what you love to do… It is so easy if you try to see it.
You can even understand it from comparing two pieces of writing. That is what I do every year. Write my wishes for the new year and compare it with the last year’s. Believe it or not, even the way of expression, word choice, style of writing changes from a year to a year, as well as perspective, thoughts, opinions, beliefs, and character.
What ever you do allow change, and let it help you evolve. You will see that you will find serenity in the blowing wind. 🙂
