“Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.” -Mary Shelley
Life is a constant twister of change. One minute you're in your hometown on your sofa watching re-runs of your favorite TV show and the next minute you're roaming around a new town with friendly faces who don't even know your name.
I like change, I'm a huge fan of it. I like new haircuts, trying new foods, and meeting new people, but sometimes change can be scary. So scary that is has you questioning yourself...”Did I make the right decision?”,“What if I don’t make any friends?","Should I have stayed?”,etc.
Lately my mind is a jumble box full of “what-ifs” and “should haves”. But I’m slowly finding out that not everything goes the way you want it to. You can imagine (picture the scene and everything) the way you want things to go, but somehow the picture gets a little fuzzy and it unfolds in a whole different direction.
This summer I moved to a sweet town in Wisconsin to start a new adventure. I’m going to be going to school here, and I’m not exactly sure how it will go, or who I’ll talk to, but I’m willing to throw myself into a new environment and see what this lovely town has to offer. In the meantime I’ll be riding my bike, going to coffee shops, reading, taking pictures, and discovering who I am as a person- what I want to be in life, and where I want to go. I’m not exactly sure this change will be easy, but it’s a change, and sometimes just that is all we need.

we could be safe. we could be predictable. we could be more accommodating.
Or, we can be strong."
