Embracing Change

It took a pitcher of sangria and an imaginary series of hundred “he said, she said” conversations to finally seat myself down and calmly reflect on the changes I desired to make in the coming year to make the most out of every moment each day.

The last year was a huge turning point for me at a personal level (even if those around me feel differently). I gave up on things which were extremely close to me and looking back at those, I think I needed a lot of courage to stand tall in front of my decisions and stick to them every single day. Giving up on things that you have cherished the most is not easy because even if that thing is not physically present in your space, you still carry a part of it in you and you can never go back to being the person you were before that experience.

This year, I am embarking on a quest to rediscover my true self. I no longer want to feel lost. I am no longer the person I used to be and even though I may not like this new person that I have become, I choose to acknowledge all these parts of me as the first step towards self-love.

In retrospect, maybe everything that looks scary from afar is not.  After all, the past year was difficult but it was also a great learning experience from which I came out a stronger, wiser person. All those decisions which were once hard to take also added the extra zing to my being. I no longer need a veil to stand amidst a crowd.
I want 2016 to be the year of change. I wish to make decisions that will keep me happy in the long run. Hopefully, by the end of this year, I will have more reasons to be grateful than I currently have.

Everyone tells us that change is good. But nobody tells us what happens after we decide to take it up and make change the way of life. This year, I am choosing to embrace change.

Let’s hope my list of things to be happy about multiplies in 365 days! *fingers crossed*

  1. Divya, I think you and I are on the same path... I had some huge choices to make, none of them easy... You are SO right, no one tells you what to do with the change, it's because I don't think they know either. I hope this is an awesome year for you xox ♡

  5. A very interesting post, Divya. I love this.

    You say 'Everyone tells us that change is good. But nobody tells us what happens after we decide to take it up and make change the way of life.' ...

    Don't lose your focus. What happens (or is happening) is right there inside of you, in your core, in your being. Change primarily is an internal thing. Subjective; varies from person to person. It is something you alone must experience in your solitary journey through life. The result is reflected in your newfound discoveries, new insights, new perceptions .... of self -- of life -- and of the world. To see change --- look within first, the rest follows.

    Keep writing your thoughts, Divya, as you travel down life's road. :-) Good luck, fellow traveler!
