This post is meant to be as much a reminder for me as it is for others. When you do something new in your life, like a new job or moving to a new place or learning something new, you will face some problems or challenges and you have to become flexible. You might have to run extra circles in order to achieve your goal, but it is all part of the journey and we have to accept that.
I experienced this myself, and I tend to get discouraged or stressed when I have to face these new challenges. Some people are so afraid of such changes that they don’t even try anything new. Well, personally I would go mad if I could not change my circumstances from time to time. Change is beneficial and an essential part of life.
Knowing that other people are in the same shoes helps a lot. For example, if you are moving and you are stressful about it, ask some friends or family members who had done it before, and they might give you useful information and even help you with the move. It will all make it much easier. If you are facing these problems together with other people, it will be much easier, because you know that they have been or they are exactly in the same shoes.
You might have to face similar challenges when you change your job. By the time you get over the challenges, you will become a better person, someone with lots of useful experiences behind, and it means that the journey is all worth it. No one can take away from you what you have learnt through the experience. And after all, they say that what you achieve is not as important as who you become on the journey.
We all have to enjoy the ride, life is a journey, happiness is a journey! Enjoy each moment of it!
Remember: “Success is not the key to happiness, happiness is the key to success!” (Albert Schweitzer)
