Dear Life Changer: An Open Letter


Dear Life Changer,

To anyone who is dipping their toe in a new or wider part of life/the world, and there is a bit of trepidation, I say this …

There will be moments, probably throughout your life (old and new), where you get annoyed at how things are done or have turned out, when you miss all things familiar, when you feel frustrated and it seems like things are stagnating or just do not make sense – but that is all part of the journey, and the journey is not one that ends – it evolves, as you do.

Life is always moving in various directions, keep being brave and going with it if it feels right or adds something to who you are, do not over think things, keep your sense of adventure and make the most of the changes your life has afforded you – good and bad.

All too often a big move or change can sometimes feel like the answer or the end point at which you say ‘this is it’ but it is just a milestone – and there will be many more to come, also good and bad.

Take time to figure out what you want out of life and how you will go about getting it and how you will deal with the crap that comes your way, as it is how you choose to deal with that, more often than not, that helps define who you are – keep looking to the horizon and thinking ‘that is what I want to experience next’.

Try things out and do not worry if it is not what you thought, does not work out or looks like it may never happen – stay brave, stay curious, stay well-informed and educated about what options you have and go for it. Sometimes, the path you take may be unexpected, but it maybe, just maybe, will be the best one yet.

We are the sum of all our experiences – make them count.

Good luck!

    I can really relate to this Molly – since spending 40 years in the same area and then moving to Somerset. After nearly 2 years I am finally beginning to feel settled, and, even though there are times I feel like a fish out of water, I feel more comfortable here now. Thank you for linking to #PoCoLo x

      It is amazing how changes like this can cause all sorts of feelings and challenges – some forseen, some not. I think being a fish out of water is a good thing to experience within our lives, but as long as we know how to deal with it. I have moments where it is a bad thing, but mostly now, I like being like that. Thanks for your comment!
