If you say that change isn’t a scary thing, you are lying, or extremely and unmeasurable courageous. Change can shake your entire world, and leave you wondering how were you ever so happy before things changed. It can crush you, and make you feel weak, and powerless. Change can even make you have thoughts of severe depression. I’m not going to lie, change scared me when I first came to MSU. I thought, man, I’m one of 50,000 now, out of my parents house, and living with people I essentially haven’t spoken to in years. I was pretty scared of that change.
Change though, can lead to great opportunities. If you embrace change, and face it head on, this new change, can open up doors you never knew even existed. But, if you’re not willing to accept these new things in life, you will inevitably be forced back to the start, before the change even happened, and before you even realize that you were too stubborn to accept this change!
This especially applies to people like me. I love my day to day routine, and 9 times out of 10, wouldn’t change a thing about it. But embracing the change I made coming to East Lansing, I’ve already made huge strides in a matter of months. I’ve gotten a new job, am developing new relationships, and working everyday to ensure, that I’m better tomorrow when I wake up, than I was today.
That’s what change can do. It can make life better for you. But if you’re not careful, it can make life, much, much worse. So embrace it, and let life do what it will.
Here’s the latest song stuck in my head, which inspired me to write this. I’m a huge Ed Sheeran fan!
