Change

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!

TIme(flies)

I remember so much of my childhood. And when I think back, it seems like every memory came along with someone telling me to slow down, and enjoy these moments. But I was way too young and immature to accept what Ferris Bueller was trying to tell me. “Life moves pretty fast, and if you don’t slow down and look around once and a while, could miss it.”

Now, I’m not saying everyday is a monumental event and you should do your best to remember it. But the moments you love that happen every weekend with your friends? Yeah, you should try your best to slow those down. Take a picture. Enjoy it. My girlfriend taught me something important a long time ago, (and some how we’re already coming up on two years together), memories are the only thing you’re left with. All the money in the world can’t buy you memories.

So slow things down. Enjoy the moment. If your friends and roommates want to go out on a Tuesday night, go. Or if your girlfriend wants to stay in, stay in. But whatever you do, make it enjoyable. Make it memorable. The last thing you want when it’s all said and done, is to question whether or not it was worth it.

Oh and as for the title? Time(flies)? Those are just my favorite musicians. It was also pretty applicable to the moment. If you want, take a listen.
