Lost and found

Some people will go to great lengths to avoid change. Not me. For me, it’s a way to regain what I’ve lost.

I made a change not long ago because I’d lost some things. Important things, like:

  • My patience
  • My motivation
  • My humor
  • My interest
  • My energy

And my resolve. I really need that. There’s nothing like barreling through life with a big dose of resolve.

I try to make a major life change every couple of years just to keep myself interested. Some might say I’m an underachiever, but I prefer to think of myself as bold and adventurous.

We’re all busy, and change can seem really daunting when you’re buried in details. But when you think about it, what is change but just swapping that really crappy to-do list for one with better stuff on it?

My energy is back. I’m even feeling a little patient. Seems like this change is for the better, but if this doesn’t work, I’ll just make another change.

See how that works? It’s a beautiful thing.

  1. My husband and I are change-a-haulics. We move too much and seem to be on course for 3-5 major life changes a year. We are running out of things to change. Maybe I could become a man or he could become a vegan next — both are equally probable.


    1. My husband is not as keen on change as I am, but he also does not stand in my way. So I’ll take it. (Now I’m wondering if I’m a changeaholic – is there are a program for that?)
