Change...and resistance..

Change is always difficult, be it in professional or personal life. If one of it is constant, it becomes easier to handle the other. But what do you do when all aspects of your life are changing at the same time... new job, new city, new lifestyle, new friends etc etc.... its like getting a complete makeover; at the end you find it difficult to recognize your own self!

Coming out of the comfort zone is something no one likes to do. Everytime I've wanted to do something different, I have seen myself procrastinating and embracing the status quo; Mainly coz of the already existing sense of security and the fear of the unknown. But luckily, in retrospect, all the dots seem to connect perfectly well and am glad I took those bold steps and embraced the change, even though I was unsure and it felt extremely difficult at that point in time. So that itself gives me a lot of confidence to plunge ahead now... and believe that change is not always bad. You never know what you are missing out in life, if you do not take that leap of faith and come out of the safety of your comfort zone. Breaking that barrier is very important... if you do not stretch beyond your comfort, you are going to be in the same place tomorrow and the next day and the next!

Someone had sent these lines to me many years back and everytime I have something drastically changing in my life, I always remember this -

"...For everything you have missed, you have gained something else; and for everything you gain, you lose something else"
