When is the right time to walk away from something you love?
‘Be True To Yourself’. It’s a simple little quote that stares at me every day, resting on my wrist Road ID. I’ve long believed that to do anything with your whole self, you should never stray too far from this motto. And while it sounds simple, I think sometimes can be more difficult than it seems.
Just as the branches of a tree extend in different directions and its leaves change appearance from year to year,
so must we spread our wings and embrace opportunity as life presents itself.
Change is uncomfortable. It can be exciting, but it is often scary. We’ve all heard the saying, “we fear what we don’t know.” I consider myself fairly open to new experiences and one whom can appreciate opportunity, but I’ll be the first to admit, I enjoy my routine. The familiar feel of consistency, gauging improvement, and knowing (at least to some extent) what to expect around the next corner. I can be sentimental towards past experiences, memories and people who are important in my life. I try to acknowledge when I am hanging on a bit too much to something and try to ask myself ‘why’ I am doing so, because I know that change is essential for growth.
