I keep telling myself this, be it true or not, I need to believe it. Now, do I sit back and watch, waiting for whatever is going to happen or do I embrace each change, each opportunity for a new experience, and attempt to MAKE things happen? Once upon a time, I’d have just sat by, but I think that time has passed. If it hasn’t, what the hell am I doing here?
Even if I do end up back in Michigan, or anywhere else for that matter, at least I’ll know I made a change and I survived. At least I will have learned that I can survive change and open myself up to it more than I would have even a month ago. Life is about changes, surprises and lessons (more commonly referred to as mistakes) and the person you are is measured more in how you overcome than what you’ve undergone.
