Change

When I moved into my current house it took me months to get used to it. I hated it. It wasn’t my old house and I missed it. Even though it was near a marketplace and I was woken every Saturday morning around 6am to shouting and car doors banging it was my home.

It took months to adjust to my new house and it wasn’t because it was any worse, in fact, it was in an area I always dreamed of living. But why was I so unhappy about moving house?

Most people can adapt to change but when it comes to things of uncertainty I shy away. Starting a new job, moving house or an upheaval in our lives all cause to upset us. We must admit that despite what we are going through changes are usually for the best.

It’s easy to be stuck in a comfort zone. It’s what makes us happy. Even a simple update to a phones operating system has ruffled a lot of people.

Take each day as it comes. I know I do.
