Change. Part Three

Only 5% of people actually make change in their life. And I understand perfectly well why so few. 
We feel safer with what we know. Even if we are not happy, the thought of a change frightens us. Not knowing what the future will be like holds us back. The fear of the unknown can be paralyzing.
We have been taught from the early age to follow the rules. To be reliable and diligent workers. To have steady jobs. To avoid risks, invest our money safely.

After a while this complacency transfers to all aspects of our lives.  Cooking the same dishes, going to the same places and doing the same things over and over. I get it. There is no work involved any more. Just do as you always did. Yup. As a tired, working mother, I get it.

The creativity and imagination that we have possessed as children gets lost.
The pressure to do as others do is overwhelming.
Truthfully, I do not think it is easy to find yourself again. It is worth trying though.
What have you got to lose?

Spring is a wonderful time to reflect and make change. If you feel you are READY, take that first step. However small, it will take you great distance.
