Websters Dictionary defines change as "to make different in some particular." Change is inevitable and there's nothing you can do to change it...see what I did there? Sometimes you find yourself at a crossroad. Change is inevitable and those who try to avoid it or change it tend to end up facing it head on. Change is hard because as humans we are wired to do the same thing over and over again and when a new thing happens we try to change the course of things.
Recently I've had a few changes in my life and they've all been for the better. I am a 20 year old college junior. Entering college I thought I knew what I wanted to study, it was criminal justice, after all i spent countless of hours watching NCIS, Law and Order, and of course CSI. My freshman year of college, I knew I wanted to go into this field, but there was always that voice in the back of my mind telling me to expand my options. After sitting through my friends lectures and my lectures it dawned on me that I wasn't doing what I loved, so what did any self respecting college student do? I changed my major, and I loved it. I found something that I was interested in and was actualy good at and enjoyed doing more than life itself.
I fell in love with photography...again. Throughout High School I always had my camera with me, I was determined to capture the beauty that surrounded me. I learned my strengths and weaknesses, I learned to take those challenges that come with my hobby and met them head on. Two years later after giving up my hobby to focus on college I found a new drive. I now find myself reaching for my camera to capture the beauty around me, despite my belief of living ini the moment I can't help myself but trying to find a way to capture those little moments.
Along with changes that happened, I'd like to make other changes personally.
I need to live in the now and worrying less about the future. The present moment is the only moment I have control over so why not let that be what I am most focused on. Plans don't often go as you wish. I've learned this time and time again.
Change is good, it pushes you out of your comfort zone, you get to experience more, you get to grow as an individual , and most importantly you get to have fun. So don't let change scare you, embrace it, grab it by the horns and just go along with the journey.
