necessary.


Change is a funny thing and not everyone can handle it. It can sneak up on you. Things aren’t what they used to be. Your whole world has transformed. You realize the ground beneath you has shifted. Things are uncertain and there’s no turning back. The world around you is different now, unrecognizable, and there’s nothing you can do about it. You’re stuck. Your future is staring you in the face and you’re not sure you like what you see. Like I said, I’m not big into change. -alex karev
 
I am not big into change typically. Although, sometimes it is very necessary for us to progress. Even though I can be stubborn and don't love change, I know it's good for me. Lately I have been focusing on the little things in life that I need to. I have made a few changes even though they may be hard. I have let go, moved forward and progressed as a person. With my yearly goal to reach my full potential I have tried to wean myself from my computer and social media in the evenings. I will be the first to admit that I used to be attached at the hip with my computer and my phone was glued to my hand. I'm not saying that at times that still isn't the case, but I have made progress. It all started with my computer dying a few months ago. I became more social as I got new roommates and became a little more social with those that live in my complex & ward. I have made it a habit now to only be on my computer during the week when I need to work. Habit is everything. It's crazy to me as we make our priorities habit that everything else falls into place, we become happier, and we realize what is necessary in our lives and realize the things that are not important. As much as I love social media & being consumed in the 'blog world' it has been so rejuvenating and relaxing to focus on the relationships in my life, meeting personal goals, doing things I love, and spending time with those I love. I don't want to give out the idea that I hate social media or blogging- sometimes it's nice just to live the life behind the blog and not worry about staying up to date with the latest and greatest. Right now I feel so content and happy in life. I am blessed with a wonderful job, am so passionate about my photography business, have the best family, great roommates who have become some of my closet friends, fabulous neighbors, and I could go on and on. Little changes in my life have been so perfect for me in this time in my life. Letting go of things in the past and looking forward to those things of the future. I can already tell that 2013 is going to be one of my favorites.
