Change

Change has a way of happening whether you want it to or not. Sometimes those changes bring about good things that you never would have encountered otherwise. They force you to do things differently. Almost two years ago I hurt my back. My life was comfortable. I worked for one of the top retailers. Anyone that works in retail can tell you that it is a pretty physical job no matter what position you have, from lowest to highest. I’d been thinking about going back to school for a while, but never got around to it. Then fate stepped in.
I realized that I could no longer do the same kind of work. So I started to think about what else I could do. I always enjoyed writing, but just for myself. So now I am earning my bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing and English. It’s been a wonderful experience and I have met some very interesting people. I also am getting over my shyness about sharing my writing with others.
If anyone had told me two years ago that I was going to move to another state, go for my bachelor’s degree and start a blog, I would have laughed. But, here I am and I’m doing all three. Change has been good for me in many ways.

  1. Yes, change is a very powerful thing. Sometimes certain life events make us re-evaluate our goals, dreams, and passion. I wasted a lot of years in the past doing negative related things just to pass the time. I am glad I found my passion again which makes me try to become what I was meant to do. A very nice welcome into your blog world-look forward to more…
