What I learnt this week: The unseen changes in us

Ahhh the end of another year.  A time when most of us reflect on what has passed and look forward to what’s ahead.  Well, that’s definitely what I do. Sometimes I may not be in the place I want to be (career or personal life wise).  Actually, usually I’m not.  Which is totally ok-  life seems to have its own plans!

However just because there may not have been drastic changes doesn’t mean things haven’t shifted!  I was reminded of this when I went to get my fringe trimmed this week.  Because it was only a small change  no one noticed.  But it was a change.  And one that I wanted.

So when I look back over the year I may not be where I thought I’d be but there has been progress.  Whether it’s how I react to certain situations with more maturity and less over reaction. Or learning to take a break when I need it, instead of pushing myself.  Or making improvements in my writing.   Things have changed.  I have changed.

Just because change isn’t dramatic doesn’t mean we haven’t grown.  It just takes baby steps to add up to these really big changes.  Unfortunately this is true of bad habits that creep into our world and take hold.  They become a permanent change that we could really do without.

That’s why it’s important to check in with ourselves .  To see how much we’ve grown without noticing or what things we’d like to changed moving into the new year.  Then we can see where we are and where we want to go next!

Cheers to that!
