There is a 18 year difference in the two images above.
Change is inevitable, and that is okay. It is how you embrace it that makes the difference.
Lately I have been having a hard time with change, as I have had a lot of it in a small amount of time. Which I guess, in this point of my life, is to be expected. The changes I have made don't normally bother me but then when I visit home my past in thrown back in my face.
What my friends say..."Remember when your hair was long?"
What I hear..." Remember when you were pretty"
Whats my friends say... "Remember when you had stretched ears?"
What I hear... "Remember when you were interesting"
What my friends say.. "Remember that one time at the one place?"
What I hear... "Remember when you were fun?"
Now, I know what I heard is not what they were saying, but the reason these things affect me is because I miss those things too. I am still that person, just different. I guess it is part of growing up. You make decisions and you live with them. Life is about sacrifices. I just pick the lesser of two evils. Right now at the top of my priority list is to make it in the professional world. I guess now would be the best time to experiment. New location. New job. New life, mixed in with the old.
I am just curious to see where things go. I wonder what change will come my way, I am going to welcome it with open arms.
Obama said change was good, maybe he is right.
